That’s what ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting; however, he also says the Kings aren’t biting. What could the Kings get for Cousins? Stein suggests the only deal they would accept may be Julius Randle AND the Lakers’ #2 pick in Thursday’s draft. Or, the Lakers could get the Orlando Magic involved:
Sources say that the Lakers, Kings and Orlando Magic have had exploratory dialogue on a three-way Cousins trade that would land the 24-year-old in Los Angeles. All three teams hold top-6 picks in Thursday’s NBA draft, and Orlando has a young top-flight center of its own in Nikola Vucevic, who could theoretically fill the Cousins void.
But what about Boogie and Willie in Sacramento together, aka the greatest reality show of all time? Something tells me it’s going to be a crazy week.
