Pistons Still Interested In Cousins
I'm not sure who they would be able to trade for him, but there's interest. I really wouldn't want to give up Drummond. That would give us 3 big guys in Drummond, Monroe, and Cousins. It actually doesn't make a ton of sense to me for the Pistons to try to get him. Although, he would be amazing next to Monroe.


Front-office sources say that Boston and Detroit, just to name two teams, have let it be known that they are highly interested if and when Cousins does become available. Rest assured there will be more.

The early word from the DeMarcus Cousins trade watch, according to the latest rumbles on the personnel grapevine, is that Kings co-owners Gavin and Joe Maloof remain reluctant in the extreme to part with their young big man, especially at a time when -- after three suspensions already this season -- Cousins' trade value isn't exactly on the upswing.

I kind of feel like they'd want Monroe or Drummond in return. No way we get him without trading one of those guys.

I wouldn't want to either, unless there's something they know about Drummond that we as fans don't. I feel like they would probably put Tay out there for sure.

Concur, doesn't make sense. But a lot of the Pistons acquisitions haven't made sense to me for a while.

No way we get Cousins for anything less than one of Monroe / Drummond.

And even if we were able to pull of something that allowed us to snatch cousins and keep both Monroe / Drummond - That front court would never work, Cousins has far too big of an ego...

And why would we even want Cousins? Sure he has talent, but I think Monroe has more. And I think Drummond fits what we need a whole heap more than what Cousins does. Cousins and monroe are too similar, both tweener PF / C's, both need to touch the ball on most possesions. Drummond is a great compliment to either of those players.

When it comes down to it, Cousins is a good player, but doesn't strike me as a good team mate, a good winner, disciplined and someone who can stay in shape or motivated.

I'll be angry if anything goes down in regards to this trade
