The NBA season is not even two weeks old and already a disgruntled player is making headlines. DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings is already unhappy with his head coach and had demanded a trade. The Kings have already stated that a trade is not in their interest, but moving the young forward might become necessary for the harmony of the team.
The latest rumor has the Boston Celtics interested in the second-year pro and though the Kings won't get the value they deserve in a deal, moving Cousins to a team with a strong veteran influence and a coach that can handle young players might be the best for all involved.
Cousins averaged over 14 points and nearly nine rebounds per game in his first season in the NBA and has the skills to become one of the league's top forwards. Boston has a need for help in the front-court and could package a couple of young players and draft picks to acquire the troubled youngster. Injuries and age are hitting the Celtics hard and making this trade could make the team competitive in the tough Eastern Conference.
