Report: Kings talking DeMarcus Cousins trade with Nuggets

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015

DeMarcus Cousins rumors are all over, and they will be all summer. Here's the latest one from Joe Kotoch at Sheridan Hoops, who says the Kings might be talking to Denver about a potential swap:

Cousins averaged 24.1 points and 12.7 rebounds this past season before making his first ever All-NBA team.

With the recent hire of coach Mike Malone and GM Pete D’Alessandro in Denver, I’m hearing from sources that the Nuggets and Sacramento Kings have engaged in talks centered around draft picks and DeMarcus Cousins. While I would be surprised to see the Kings move Cousins, the possibility of adding Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried is awfully tempting. I also hear if that deal is not consummated, the Nuggets are looking to deal the seventh pick. The same can be said for the Kings at No. 6 if Mudiay is not there, but it is certainly possible he falls into their lap.
