Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins has had a rough go of it since being drafted in #3 overall in 2010. Cousins has been suspended this season, fined for incidents with refs,and TV analyst.
The talk around the league has been about the Kings and Cousins parting ways to help both parties improve their situations. The question now is where possibly could Cousins end up?
Pro Basketball Talk is reporting that a trade to the Washington Wizards, and being reunited with former Kentucky Teammate John Wall could be just what Cousins needs.
Cousins just recently fired his agent and hired Dan Fegan. Fegan coincidentally happens to represent John Wall as well, and the reunification could definitely happen.
Sam Amick of USA Today offers more insight.
“While Cousins has insisted publicly that he does not want to be traded, his story has been different privately. The recent hiring of influential agent Dan Fegan has led to the widespread assumption within the organization that Cousins will eventually demand a trade. Specifically, two people close to the situation who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation said a trade to the Washington Wizards would be considered ideal for Cousins and Fegan because Cousins could rejoin former Kentucky teammate and fellow Fegan client, point guard John Wall. The Wizards, who are known to have expressed recent interest in Cousins, have been told by the Kings that they have no intention of trading him
The Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics have been among the teams that have shown interest in the past on gambling with the player who could become the most dominant big man in the game. But will Petrie still be at the helm by the time the Feb. 21 trading deadline arrives? Will he be allowed to make franchise-altering moves such as these if his time in Sacramento is nearing an end?”
Cousins needs to do something, and what would really help him and all involved is if he would grow up. Nobody likes losing I understand, but Cousins does nothing to help any of the situations with his attitude.
