The Celtics, like most teams, have called Sacramento to gauge what it would take to trade for DeMarcus Cousins. The young, disgruntled Kings center has been suspended from the team for his disagreements with coach Paul Westphal.

“It’s highly unlikely,” a league source said of the Celtics’ chances of landing Cousins. “I’m not sure that any team is going to get him. The thing is that everyone knows he’s a wreck. They’re not going to get what he’s worth.”
Nothing unexpected here. The Celtics need a center and a center demands a trade, so Ainge had to make the call, as our own DH proposed immediately after the trade demand. I assume Ainge's offer would have been our two first rounders in 2012 and JaJuan Johnson. Kings could do much better if they ever decide to move Cousins (They have said they won't).

Worth at least keeping track of, in case for example Kings coach Paul Westphal is murdered in a drive by shooting and Cousins' trade value goes down. Young knuckleheads Tyreke Evans and Cousins hate Westphal, and you may recall that Tyreke Evans was previously put behind bars for being the driver in a drive-by shooting, so I guess anything is possible.

My prediction: Kings will fire Westphal, keep Cousins, and cater to the knuckleheads. Kings will continue to be lousy.

Update less than 2 days later: Westphal was fired.

    Ainge need to trade J.O`Neal and A.Bradley to Sacramento,but he still needs to sign Eddie House and Nate Robinson back to Boston so we can kill in the East and get Banner18 at the Garden.
