Way I see it, give him the rest of this season, next season and if he doesn't shape up, he's out of here. But in the interim, you've got a big body that brings offense to the table.


Okay, so what are we giving away for him? Draft picks? Some of our very few decent players? Cap space? Sorry, but I'm not willing to give up any of those for a 2 year lease on a guy who has always been considered extremely selfish and stupid.

he's no worse than zach randolph early in his career and he's the centerpiece of a team better than every nola hornets team in history except maybe 1

Point taken. You don't want him on any terms. It's fine.

I just heartily disagree.

Nooooo dude... Everyone wanted Drummond, didn't you hear??!?

But yea, you are right.

"No, I don't want Cousins, I'd rather continue to suck."

I'd love to have Cousins as long as he doesn't choke out Monty Williams. I don't think people realize just how great Cousins and Davis would be together. You would have a legit post presence, a couple of shooters, an athletic 4 who can space the floor.

We would be a SF away from being a top 6 seed in the west.

I'm surprised at all the Cousins love. To me he seems like inefficient stat padder on a bad team. He has never shot over 45% and for a big that is horrendous. I wouldn't be upset if the Hornets gave up the first round pick and filler for him, because I don't think we will be in position to draft Shabazz, but much more and the risk starts to outweigh the reward.

re: Trade for Cousins?


He was the 5th most efficient center last year while shooting a shitty FG%

Grevis is an example of an inefficient stat padder

Id trade a top 3 protected 1st rounder for him. Hes an all Star calibar talent and young. Still. This draft is weak also. Him and Anthony davis for the future. Plus ryan anderson. Shippp

Why would the Kings do that? They are already going to have a lottery pick and they have a bunch of cap room. I don't get it..
