Eastern Rumors: Cousins, Noel, George

DeMarcus Cousins is well aware that many Celtics fans want him in Boston but he hasn’t ruled out signing an extension with the Kings, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com reports. Cousins, who isn’t eligible to hit the free agent market until 2018, told Blakely he would not rule out the possibility of staying with Sacramento long-term. “I got a season and a whole other season,” Cousins said. “I focus on these guys right here; I focus on winning games; I focus on making the playoffs; that’s it.” However, Cousins is unfazed about the constant trade chatter, in which Boston is prominently mentioned as a logical match. “Most of the rumors come from people who want me on their team,” he told Blakely. “It doesn’t bother me.”
In other news around the Eastern Conference:
  • Nerlens Noel isn’t happy about the logjam in the Sixers’ frontcourt, Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes. Noel is skeptical that there will be enough minutes to go around, now that Joel Embiid has established himself, Narducci continues. “I don’t think the roster’s changed,” Noel told Narducci. Noel, sidelined by a knee injury since training camp, returned to the team on Thursday after working out with its D-League affiliate. But coach Brett Brown estimates Noel will miss four or five more games, Narducci adds.
  • Guard Josh Richardson returned to Miami during the Heat’s current three-game road trip to get treatment for his sore ankle, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Richardson suffered the injury against the Celtics on Monday. Miami is already playing without two of its top wings, Justise Winslow and Dion Waiters, due to injuries. “It’s an easy decision for us,” coach Erik Spoelstra told Winderman and other beat writers. “His ankle is really sore. He has a bunch of other little, minor things going on. So we just wanted to go back, get his body right, feel right for the next three days, four days. We’ll reevaluate him then.”
  • Pacers star Paul George plans to return to action on Sunday after missing six of the last seven games with an ankle injury, according to Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star. George feels like his team, which is one game under .500, needs his leadership on the court. “I think just sitting out and watching, I’ve got to get back to being the guy for us,” he told Taylor. “I’ve got to have the trust of the team, I’ve got to have the trust of the organization. This has been my group, this has been my team. I’ve got to get back to that.”

    Cousins for Olynyk, Jaylen, our 2018 first (not Brooklyn’s), our 2019 first

    • Compton

      Lol

      The Kings are going to want that Nets pick ,it’s more valuable higher pick(Lottery Pick)p.s I am a huge Pistons fan

    • jmgara

      Boogie is the prominent player on the Kings — by far. Why would they wait for 18 and 19 for picks, and tank in the meantime.

    • JT19

      That is terrible value. I imagine a Cousins deal starts with one of Jaylen Brown/Marcus Smart (probably Brown since he has more control). The deal then moves to the Brooklyn pick. If the Brooklyn pick isn’t in (which might be a dealbreaker anyway), then the Kings are going to ask for probably two of Smart/Bradley/Crowder. Add in spare parts afterwards. If the difference between Cousins going to the Celtics and staying with the Kings is that Brooklyn pick, Ainge should give that pick up in a heartbeat. There would be no need for the high-value prospect coming from that pick anyway. And again, it’s either the Brooklyn pick or multiple pieces of the rotation, which would make the Cousins trade a zero sum.

      So to recap your proposal would consist of the Celtics getting arguably the best center in the league right now in his prime for:
      -A backup center who can stretch a floor but lacks in rebounding and defensive ability, not to mention that he is about to get expensive as a RFA. (possibly approaching Cousins’ 18Mil for next year)
      -A rookie with the potential to be good but with lots to prove and far from established
      -Two draft picks which would essentially fall in the 25-30 range.

      Not gonna happen. Any deal for Cousins starts with Brooklyn’s pick for next year, and I think you can safely add Bradley and Smart/Brown to get the Kings interested.

    Celts don’t have the asset to acquire a guy like Boogie. Yall delusional if you think Nets’ pick can compensate for the loss of the best offensive big man in the game. Jaylen who? seriously. They just opened a new arena, they want to sell tickets to prove it was worth the investment. You think fans will show up to watch Kosta Koufos play? If you only knew Vlade, guy won’t talk unless Cous force him to. If anything, expect SAC to pursue Bledsoe.

  3. Joe Love

    I still don’t get why anyone wants DC as their max guy. Incredible as a player when engaged, but too often gives up on plays to complain to refs and has an appalling attitude. I’m talking about the security guard/Chinese New Year fiascoes.
