The latest NBA trade rumors are centering again on DeMarcus Cousins. This time around, it is the Boston Celtics which are apparently interested in getting the services of Cousins. However, it is uncertain if the Sacramento Kings are willing to trade him to the Celtics. It seems they are dangling two quality starters to get Cousins.
Two Names Of Boston Celtics Players Keep On Coming Up
In all the NBA trade rumors involving the Celtics, two names in their roster always come up. They are Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley. It began when Boston attempted to dangle the two to the Bulls in exchange for Jimmy Butler. Lately, they seem to offer Crowder and Bradley to the Sacramento Kings, in exchange for Cousins.
This deal will only get the green light if the Kings will be willing to let go of Cousins. Some suggest that the Celtics would grab this chance despite the NBA trade rumors that Brad Stevens does not like the prospect of coaching someone like Cousins. But it would only be possible if the Kings are amenable to the trade.
The Miami Heat Are Also Involved In Trade Rumors
Meanwhile, NBA trade rumors are also circulating around the Miami Heat. Some of the rumors suggest that the Heat is negotiating a package with the New Orleans Pelicans. The deal involves Terrence Jones, Omer Asik and Buddy Hield, and the team's first-round draft pick in 2017. Other Heat players are not eligible for trading until after Dec. 15.
In support of these NBA trade rumors, a Fansided article also suggests the probability that the team's center Hassan Whiteside could be teaming up with Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans. In New Orleans, Davis is practically a one-man show. They need to add another impact player to the team to help Davis do his job better. The article suggested that Whiteside of the Heat is the player who could fill that shoe.
