Vlade Divac says he would trade DeMarcus Cousins...for Michael Jordan
Vlade Divac knows the talent his team has in DeMarcus Cousins. That's why even with all the rumored attitude and personality issues you hear about the Kings center, he's still there in Sacramento, manning the middle of the floor, ripping down boards and scoring baskets. How could the Kings possibly let go of the most dominant low-post threat since Shaquille O'Neal without getting back an historic package?
So, when NBA.com's David Aldridge asked Divac about the trade rumors surrounding Cousins, Vlade laughed it off:
There you go. The Kings are trading DeMarcus to the Hornets for Michael Jordan. You heard it here first.

Me: So you wouldn’t entertain any offers for him at this time?
VD: Well, if it’s Michael Jordan there, I’ll think about it. (Laughs)
