Sources: Celtics Inquired About Cousins
According to league sources, the Celtics have, indeed, inquired about (DeMarcus) Cousins, but that shouldn’t come as a great revelation in that they, like most every NBA club, are constantly checking the marketplace to see if a bargain can be had.
Considering the talent the Kings already have in the backcourt, it’s possible the Celtics can’t even muster something that would be attractive enough for Sacramento — at least not at this moment. And you’d have to question whether you’d give up even equal talent for this guy, his abilities notwithstanding. What we know right now is that the Kings aren’t inclined to hold a fire sale.
Which is not to say Cousins isn’t an emergency call waiting to happen. Watching him up close last Sunday in Sacramento, two words continually came to mind: train wreck.
