If the Kings were to deal Cousins, the Nets would be in the running with many other teams including the Celtics who have reportedly also made calls inquiring his trade status. DeMarcus’s talents are very visible, but so is faults, he has the possibility to anchor a team also become a cancer. The Nets would love the opportunity to have a player of his talents, a front-line of Cousins and Lopez would be right at the top of the league. We’re not sure if the acquisition of Cousin’s would ultimately take the Nets out of the Dwight Howard sweepstakes, but it would make it all that much more difficult to happen. Howard is the Nets top priority on the roster addition list, and they assume that Howard coming to the Nets would make Deron Williams re-sign with the club. There’s no guarantee that Cousin’s instead of Howard would have the same effect on Williams decision making.
