Danny (As Expected) Called About Cousins

When we heard that DeMarcus Cousins may or may not have demanded a trade, you just knew that Danny Ainge would at least pick up the phone and give the Kings a ring. According to Mark Murphy, that's just what he did.

The Celtics, like most teams, have called Sacramento to gauge what it would take to trade for DeMarcus Cousins. The young, disgruntled Kings center has been suspended from the team for his disagreements with coach Paul Westphal.

"It's highly unlikely," a league source said of the Celtics' chances of landing Cousins. "I'm not sure that any team is going to get him. The thing is that everyone knows he's a wreck. They're not going to get what he's worth."

All of which makes perfect sense. Cousins is a loose cannon and an emotional guy. I get the feeling that what he said was out of frustration and not a legit trade demand. He's too talented to give up on and the Kings know they'd get pennies on the dollar for him at this point, so by all accounts they'll ride it out. But I guess you never know at the trade deadline or in the offseason what the future could hold.
