The Sacramento Kings' DeMarcus Cousins has been the subject of NBA trade rumors for quite a while now. It goes to show that the two-time NBA All-Star is truly a force to reckon with. The latest report reveals that negotiation between the Boston Celtics and the Sacramento Kings for Cousins is now underway.
DeMarcus Cousins And John Wall Reunion
In 2015 and 2016, Cousins was named an NBA All-Star so it is no wonder if a lot of teams have been reportedly eyeing the Sacramento Kings' center. Despite lack of confirmation yet, it wouldn't be a surprise that the Kings will soon be giving up Cousins as rumors continue to spread like wildfire. This is not the first time however that Cousins will be leaving his current team. For one, Cousins himself had expressed in a previous interview that he wanted to cross over with other team to reunite with college buddy and now the Washington Wizards' point guard John Wall.
Trade Negotiations For DeMarcus Cousins Underway
According to a recent report from NESN, a trade may in fact happen "sooner than later." However, it underscored that there may be a third party in this negotiation. The said report cited the tweet of Boston's sports analyst Adam Kaufman's last Dec. 11 stating: "Not reporting trade betw #Celtics/#Kings imminent or will even happen...but heard something regarding Cousins, C's that caught my attention." Later the same day, Kaufman posted another tweet saying: "Basically, there are some other teams around #NBA that believe there's traction on Boogie deal...but not a #Celtics or #Kings source. FWIW."
From the looks of it, another team must be involved in the deal besides the Boston Celtics. However, Kaufman hasn't been all-out to share which team he's referring to. Even so, fans have to take this report with a pinch of salt as of this time until the Sacramento Kings or Cousins himself will officially confirm it.
