Sac/ Min/ Mil
Sac gets Rubio
- Rondo is not likely to return and the Kings will not deal Cousin so the Kings cash in one of their many bigs for a better PG.
Min gets Moose
- Dunn will be the new PG and Minn moves past Rubio and takes a change on Thibs using Moose to be an effective on the court player while minimizing his defensive woes.
Bucks get WCS and Collison
- WCS is a younger defensive minded center that will be more effective than the bucks. Bucks cut Collison due to off court issues and open more cap for FA to sign vet players.

28 Jun 2016 09:46:56
Kings -Beverley Ariza
Suns - Gay
HOUSTON - Chandler
Cleveland - HOWARD (s@t)
Clippers - love
Houston - Griffin.
28 Jun 2016 15:23:40
I like that move, but Cleveland should receive some draft picks
cleveland: D12+ 1rnd pick Hou 17 and 19.
28 Jun 2016 06:50:08
Lakers trade: Randle
Kings trade: WCS and Labassierre
*Assuming Lakers don't sign Whiteside or another Center.
28 Jun 2016 09:19:17
WCS has the same value as Randle, so why should the Kings offer Skal too?
28 Jun 2016 09:39:39
I'd almost consider WCS more valuable.
28 Jun 2016 13:28:52
Wcs for sure is more valuable.
28 Jun 2016 14:46:29
WCS IS more valuable.
28 Jun 2016 22:27:59
Closer but neither likely- Skal for Randle
or WCS for Russell
27 Jun 2016 22:21:43
realistic rumors Lakers
Lakers get Butler, Collison, McLemore
Kings get Williams, Young and second draft pick
Lakers take veterans, Kings improve the bench
Lakers sign Whiteside 80x4
Russell - Collison
McLemore - Clarkson
Ingram - Butler
Randle - Nance
Whiteside - Zubac or Black.
27 Jun 2016 23:04:59
I find this rather unrealistic but if there is a team dumb enough to do this its surely the Kings. Collison is one of the best backup pgs in the league and McLemore hasn't panned out thus far but he is still only 23 with lottery pick pedigree and Butler isn't much more than a good locker room presence that can give you a few minutes per game. I don't see why Kings would give this up to take on Williams a great sixth man and scorer off the bench but not the type of guy that can run your offense or potentially start at pg (if Kings can't retain Rondo they could start Collison), Nick Young a guy with a lot of baggage and disproportionate contract without the talent to make it worth it and a second round draft pick. I don't think a 2nd rounder is enough compensation to take on that salary and to gain considerable assets like Collison and McLemore (he still has upside and I think fresh start in a new city would help him a lot) .
This trade obviously makes a lot of sense for the Lakers since they are clearing cap space while getting a good backup pg and "starting" sg with 3-D potential but I don't get how Kings are benefiting from this trade.
28 Jun 2016 03:26:18
Kings say no
27 Jun 2016 17:25:42
Lakers trade: Lou Williams and future 2nd
Kings trade: Skal Labasierre.
27 Jun 2016 20:46:56
Not that bad of a trade kings have a lot of bigs not to many wing guy.
27 Jun 2016 21:00:37
Riiiiight, the Kings could probably get williams for a supremely protected 2nd round pick 5 years from now. Why again do they instead give up a 1st round prospect?
27 Jun 2016 23:36:05
I mean when you consider where Skal was drafted I guess it isn't bad but when you look at where Kings are in terms of contending it doesn't really matter if they have too many big guys since they don't have enough talent or a functional enough front office to compete. Louis Williams would help them win a few more games but he doesn't make them a playoff team. It makes a lot more sense for them to take a chance on Labissiere and hope he becomes something great then going with Williams who is a good piece on a good team but isn't a game changer on a team like the Kings.
28 Jun 2016 13:36:44
Lou Williams is terrible. Laker fans do know this right?
27 Jun 2016 04:44:42
Bucks - Lakers - Kings
Bucks gets - McClemore•SG/ SF and Williams•SG
Lakers gets - MCW•PG, WCS•C, and Bucks 1st
Kings gets - Russell•PG/ SG
Giannis - Middleton - McClemore - Parker - Henson
MCW - Clarkson - Ingram - Randle - WCS
Rondo - Russel - Gay - Acy - Cousins.
27 Jun 2016 06:47:26
I don't really understand why the Bucks would do this, they are getting crushed in this trade. Give up their first in the best draft since 2003 for a bench player? Makes no sense
27 Jun 2016 07:28:54
The Bucks are getting robbed neither of those guys are worth a 1st.
27 Jun 2016 14:51:10
Find it funny how everyone is saying next years class is deep and fantastic. Half of the class hasn't played a minute of college basketball. Pretty sure 2014 was supposed to great a draft class and it looks like only 1 true Star comes from that draft.
27 Jun 2016 01:54:08
Sixers should look to get another pick for very deep 17 draft to get going pg sg and sf
If Kings or Sixers gets #1 (very good odds this happens) they can draft Jackson then with Lakers pick (hopefully also in 4-8 range) they can draft Lonzo Ball. If they get a 3rd pick, depending on who it is they can get Monk or Grayson Allen if it is later in the draft. Sign some veterans and by the time Lebron leaves this could be a legacy team.
Rockets get Grant (Bulls), Covington, Bulls 2017 2nd
Sixers get Beverly McDermott Bulls 1st 2017
Bulls get Okafor
27 Jun 2016 15:27:03
I would pass as a Sixers fan.
27 Jun 2016 16:07:17
I would accept as a Sixers fan but I think Rockets would decline. Beverly fits really well with Harden.
26 Jun 2016 18:05:02
Suns/ Bucks/ Kings
Suns; Cousins, Butler, Anderson
Bucks; Bledsoe, Len, McLemore
Kings; Monroe, Tucker, Carter-Williams, D. Bender, Goodwin
26 Jun 2016 19:09:02
26 Jun 2016 19:11:13
An unproven Bender and meh stuff for Boogie?
26 Jun 2016 22:06:09
Not sure how bucks get Bledsoe with that offer let alone how that nets Cousins. Don't think Kings are even dysfunctional enough to do that deal.
28 Jun 2016 03:30:37
26 Jun 2016 16:52:55
Rumors that Jodie Meeks might be on the block because of the Pistons depth at 2/ 3. Any ideas who'd be interested?
My First thought was the Kings but I don't think they have anything of similar value to trade.
26 Jun 2016 17:03:05
Rockets. Antoni is the reason he got the contract he has as he had a career year under him. Would only make sense for him to go back.
26 Jun 2016 17:25:51
That makes sense, maybe for Beverley? He's got similar salary, doesn't fit D'antoni's system, and it looks like the Pistons could use a back up PG that could also play with Reggie on the floor at the 2.
26 Jun 2016 18:16:32
Jodie Meeks sucks.
26 Jun 2016 19:15:55
I like the sound of Beverly. SVG wants a young vet (under 30) and he's a decent backup.
25 Jun 2016 22:48:13
Two team looking to deal
Sacramento Kings and Timberwolves
Kings trade cousins.
Wolves trade lavine Dunn Muhammad minny 2017 first overall.
It's seems like a light package at first but kings get three starters right away to go with stein and free up cap space for the future. They also get a future first which will help.
26 Jun 2016 01:40:55
It's a good enough offer that Kings aren't clearly getting robbed. Kings aren't going anywhere with Cousins and with 2 yrs left on his contract this season is best time to trade him before his value drops. I think they should deal him sooner than later since he has the ability to tank his value with off the court antics and publicly requesting a trade. They should just take the best offer they can get. This trade gives them some young pieces where they are weakest so although it isn't the greatest value its a good fit.
26 Jun 2016 02:10:28
1)Wolves don't have their 2017 pick to give
2)The Wolves have absolutely nobody to play SG
3)Cousins is a headache and shouldn't be allowed near the young guys on the Wolves
26 Jun 2016 03:40:30
Minnesota can't trade their first round pick because it goes to the Hawks if it isn't in the lottery.
26 Jun 2016 15:26:29
Agree with wolvesfan, cousins would be a terrible guy in that young locker room. Just let these guys grow together. Minny has the players to win a championship in 3 year, I don't think they need to move anyone.
26 Jun 2016 16:19:21
The wolves lost the 2017 pick? Ugh. That hurts. It's not protected or anything? If it's protected you can trade it if it falls right.
And sg is Wiggins. It's a position he can be maximized in. He's just too skinny to be a sf at an elite level and you need him elite. Plus you're getting cousins. An elite player at center to go with town and elite player. Three elites and role players is all you need to make the playoffs.
27 Jun 2016 03:03:25
Absolutely not from Kings
25 Jun 2016 20:26:54
Celtics get Demarcus Cousins
Kings get Marcus Smart, Kelly Olynyk, rights to Abdel Nadar, Boston 2017 1st, Brooklyn 2018 1st, and LA Clippers 2019 1st.
25 Jun 2016 21:05:52
Honestly. I think Boston missed their chance for A trade. The three pick had solid immediate value. Now that the pick is made. That value dropped. The next Brookyln pick is 2018 so that's a wait for sure.
I just think they messed up big time. No trade for that package at least.
25 Jun 2016 21:52:31
I think Kings will or should make a trade with their 5 centers and Cousins seems like the most likely out. So what is a good trade for him then?
25 Jun 2016 22:14:08
Boston has the right to swap their 2017 1st round with Brooklyn's which will more than likely happen.
26 Jun 2016 01:47:50
I agree with TreGib draft picks have significant more value than the player they are selected with since a team has the ability to get "their" guy so Boston missed a significant opportunity to land a big name by not making a trade before the draft. I think a trade now is less likely (I'm sure Celtics got offers or counter-offers but front office ultimately decided it was better to just keep the picks) but not impossible. I'm not positive if Boston deals their 2017 the Kings would still be able to swap it with Brooklyn. If this is the case it isn't a bad deal since 2017 and 2018 picks should both be high lottery selections and Kings aren't going anywhere soon with or without Cousins. If swap doesn't transfer then Boston would be foolish to deal their 2017 pick for anything.
26 Jun 2016 16:21:18
The swap is helpful for sure. But it's a more unknown then what the three pick was this year. Again too little to late. If you threw that pick in with the third pick this year you would of been able to get the deal done. No you have a back up. Great. Ainge missed out man. I'm disappointed.
25 Jun 2016 20:01:04
Sacramento - San Antonio
Sacramento trades: DeMarcus Cousins
San Antonio trades: Tony Parker, 2017 first round pick.
25 Jun 2016 22:17:24
lol good one!
25 Jun 2016 22:39:27
That 2017 1st rd pick would probably be #30.
26 Jun 2016 01:58:15
Cousins with a coach he'd actually have to respect and could keep him in line would be dangerous. If I were Spurs I'd consider swapping Aldridge for Cousins ( Would likely have to be part of a 3 team deal since I doubt Kings would want Aldridge although the value makes sense)
25 Jun 2016 08:34:30
Cavs - Nets - Kings
Cavs get- B Lopez, Koufos, Ellington
Nets receive- R Gay, Shumpert, McLemore, Mo Williams
Kings get- T Thompson, Jarrett Jack, R Hollis Jefferson.
25 Jun 2016 22:18:48
Not really excited about this one if I'm the kings.
24 Jun 2016 21:13:07
Pelicans deal to improve the team
Pelicans - Ruday Gay, Ben McLemore
Kings - Jrue Holiday, Quincy Pondexter, 2nd round pick
Pelicans need wing bad, Sac needs PG. Win win for both teams
Pelicans new lineup
PG - Evans
SG - Heild
SF - Gay
PF - Davis
C - Diello/ Asik.
24 Jun 2016 22:37:11
This is close, I think the Pels need to give a little more up. Also, wouldn't Nola want to put Gay at the 4 and Davis at the 5? I'm not sure what Nola could do in FA following this move, if you try to find a wing or guard to fill the 4th spot vacated by Diello/ Asik.
25 Jun 2016 02:08:32
Not crazy about Evans at point guard and I like Holiday who has the talent but he hasn't been able to be healthy since coming to NOLA. Maybe a change of scenery helps both Holiday and McLemore fulfill their potential. Gay has proven he can be a solid player and scorer so he wouldn't be a bad pickup. I like the deal although if Kings feel they can resign Rondo this trade doesn't make sense for them (They likely should resign him to try and to keep Cousins happy. )
25 Jun 2016 22:25:24
Agree that it is close but something is off. Holliday with only one year is not attractive.
24 Jun 2016 16:13:59
SAC get Kyle Korver
ATL get Kosta Koufos and future lottery protected 1st
Is this worth it for the Kings since they need some guard and outside shooting?
ATL on the other hand need some depth up front. The picks is a sweetener since Korver i think is more valuable.
24 Jun 2016 20:27:13
Maybe if horford leaves.
25 Jun 2016 04:43:44
Maybe Sacramento adds a draft pick.
25 Jun 2016 22:30:28
It says SAC is giving a pick, but they don't do this. Korver 2 years ago sure with the pick- now Koufos for Korver strait up. Korver is old has 1 year on his deal and had significant drop off this year. Koufos has a decent deal, is younger and is fairly solid guy.
24 Jun 2016 14:06:27
Rest of Pelicans offseason
Pelicans - Rudy Gay
Kings - Jrue Holiday, Quincy Pondexter
Pelicans - Robert Covington
76ers - Two 2nd rounders
Sign Kent Brazemore SG/ SF 3 yr 40 mil
Sign Brandon Jennings PG 3 yr 27 mil
Sign Terrence Jones 4 yr 60 mil
PG - Evans - Jennings
SG - Heild - Brazemore
SF - Gay - Covington
PF - Davis - Jones
C - Asik - Deillo.
24 Jun 2016 14:47:02
sixers have no need for future second rounders. answer Covington is on a great contract and an important piece for the sixers. Sixers don't even think about this trade.
24 Jun 2016 16:38:40
No second rounders needed thank you. Got plenty coming anyway.
25 Jun 2016 22:31:09
Trade 1 looks solid
24 Jun 2016 13:51:49
Portland: D Cousins+ McLemore+ Gay
Tor: Vonleh+ E Davis
Sac: D Caroll+ McCollum+ 1rnd pic Tor 17+ 1rnd pick Port 17 and 19.
24 Jun 2016 17:44:14
would take it for Portland.
24 Jun 2016 20:53:17
24 Jun 2016 23:25:16
24 Jun 2016 05:53:46
Sixers, Lakers, Suns, Grizzles had good drafts.
Sixers got Simmons (best player in class) and 2 wings who can shoot
Lakers got the 2nd best player and a first round talent in Zubas
Suns got Bender and Chriss thanks to the Kings
Grizzles took advantage of Baldwin and Davis falling.
Maker was my favorite player in the draft but 10 is too high.
Kings were high when drafting Papa Johns.
24 Jun 2016 14:44:34
I agree. Lakers should wait out this process now. They need a center and there's always a center in a draft so next year just draft that and they're good. Young teams take time. I wonder if la fans can wait that long to have a winning team?
24 Jun 2016 15:13:19
Hopefully Zubac could develop into that center but he needs to I prove defense. I can wait. Depends on if Mitch and Jim could wait it out. It's just hard waiting when both your NBA and NFL teams are horrible.
24 Jun 2016 20:41:51
Lakers may not be able to wait the process out because Philly has their first round pick next year (top 3 protected) . As a philly fan I hope LA doesn't get any big FA's so their pick can be in the 4 - 10 range.
24 Jun 2016 03:46:25
Cousins is really mad with Kings how about we reunite him with his old coach Malone.
Nuggets trade Gallinari, Faried, Barton, Nurkic
Kings trade Cousins and Gay.
24 Jun 2016 14:21:51
Murray Mudiay, Gallinari and a 2017 1st for Cousins and Gay.
24 Jun 2016 14:24:59
Why do you hate: Gallinari, Faried, Barton and Nurkic?
24 Jun 2016 14:45:12
I feel like cousins is demanding a trade to Boston ASAP.
24 Jun 2016 19:32:50
Harris, Fareid, Nurik, First next year, and First 2018, two picks this year (15th player and 19th player) for Cousins.
25 Jun 2016 22:35:25
Cousins Gay for Murray Mudiay, Gallinari and a 2017 1st and Fareid
24 Jun 2016 02:06:27
Kings reaching on Papawhatshisname makes no sense. Is Cousins back on the block?
24 Jun 2016 02:53:24
Boogies pissed just posted " god give me strength" on twitter.
24 Jun 2016 04:54:35
When isn't he upset.
