    Those statements are not "an agreement" ...and remember, I'm one of those who believes in Vlade.

    In legal terms, NOTHING that has been said constitutes an official agreement. Tendering a notion, as you call it, isn't worth the paper it's written on. (And it's not written on anything, in case you don't get the reference.)

    Plans, intentions, notions, statements, etc. are not parts of a valid contract. Again, ask the Clippers...

    At the end of the day, I firmly believe Boogie is going to sign a lucrative extension BUT until the ink is on the paper he could be traded...NOT THAT I THINK HE WILL BE.

    And who is in the Nuggets front office? And who has been proven to have leaked stuff before? What better way to have Boogie on edge than to circulate a rumor like this? Hrmmmm?

    But timing is everything. All eyes are on the All-Star game.Why did Woj choose this particular point in time to put out that little tease? I still maintain that there's a stench here somewhere.

    another week until the trade deadline. I expect a huge number of rumors by then, something to talk about I suppose.

    One more thing, even if Vivek is open to trading him, you don't do so until you sign him long term because no team will give you the farm for him. The 2019 offseason will tell us everything we need to know moving forward with him IMO.

    Cousins and his agents believe a contract awaits him, and it would look bad on the Kings if he were traded

    But yes, nothing's binding

    In terms of franchise etiquette I think it is

    Maybe because Pelicans made an offer? The best they could do w/o including Davis is Buddy, an unprotected 2017 and 2019 pick. I don't see that as enough. There's nothing else on their roster to pique interest of SAC to part with Boogie.

    maybe the Pelicans want to swap Davis for Cousins? o_O

    Would you trade Boogie for Brow? I know my answer but I'll wait for yours. ;)

    Unless they are sending us Anthony Davis for DMC, then NO way!!! :cool:

    Only one voice really matter on signing off on a $200 mil deal and that is vivek!

    I think Vivek is squarely in the Sign DMC corner!

    It would have to be Anthony Davis for DMC swap!!! ;)

    Just about the only player I would trade DMC for is Anthony Davis, and that's only because he is a couple years younger.

    The advantage that Davis has in age has to be weighed against the durability of Cousins. I think Boogie is less inclined to miss games as their respective careers progress.

    No. Only reason is because I'm scared when Davis will go out with a injury again. Boogie for all his troubles, hasn't missed that many games with injury in his career up to this point. He is an iron man.

    Look, I don't think there is a player or that there was a player than was untouchable. Hell Shaq got traded how many times?

    Having said that, I highly doubt that a team will come up with the godfather offer for us to consider it. Boston is probably the only team that has some assets that might tempt us.

    I am not surprised that this rumour is out there a couple of days after DMC told the world at an all-star press conference that he wants to stay in Sacramento. We have known it but the national media is slow to catch up on it. This is precisely what I would do if I was another team that was interested in Cousins. Leak out there that his team is shopping him despite his commitment to try and get him disgruntled and get him to force a trade out so that I can come in and make an offer that might be enough to get him on my team.

    There will be a LOT of rumours put out there that have no substance to them other than to get the player disgruntled to try and force a trade. I fully expect DMC to play for theKings for many years to come.

    Well that is the only question, and the thing is, on NO topic is Woj less qualified to opine than Vivek Ranadive's opinions.

    The problem with Woj is that of course is a well known whore -- that's why he's so often got the inside scoop shortly before things happen. He directly, and blatantly, sells his journalistic integrity for access. So, he will carry bad stories for agents or others, in return for them giving him inside scoops at a later date. So yes, Woj often has the best info in the business, because he is one of the very few who actually does have "sources", as in the principal parties themselves. But, in return for that inside info, he runs reprehensible political fluff stories at the behest of outside masters.

    When you see a story like this, you have to decide, is this Woj with the inside scoop? And given that our front office and ownership hate him, and given that Cuz's agents issued a denial, you know THOSE aren't the sources.... Or is this Woj carrying some outside party's water again? Woj aligned himself against Vivek early on, so one of the minority whiners? We know he's been using PDA as a source. PDA? (I don't know what benefit he would get from still using him however). Ainge or some other GM looking to again shake the tree? Dunno.


    In any case, Vivek being Vivek, you never can entirely trust unfortunately. Cuz could want to come back, Vlade could tell him he was coming back. And our mercurial owner could panic and destroy everything all over again. Or I should say YOUR mercurial owner, because if he did do something like this I am done with his franchise and would urge Joerger to bail out as soon as possible for his sanity and reputation too. Nonetheless, my guess here is Woj is working for somebody here. Just not sure who.

    There is not one single player on the planet I would rather have than Demarcus Cousins.

    That said, there is nothing wrong with Vlade having conversations.

    James Ham confirmed the talks and even went as far as to say its 50-50. He is connected to the organization and is always the first one to speak on their behalf so this isnt some BS.

    I wouldn't say that just yet. James Ham just said he was told it is a 50/50 chance of happening. He never says that about any trade deal involving DMC
  22. KingsFan80

    A-Davis is better player overall. But the issue is his health
  23. jcwkings

    jcwkings Well-Known Member

    Yep, he is the unnoficial spokesperson of the organization. Either the Kings had a late change of heart or they are using this as one last push to see all the "grandfather offers" the league can provide.
  24. VF21

    VF21 #KingsFansForever Staff Member Contributor

    You might not say it but I will...repeatedly. And I put no stock in what James Ham says, for reasons known to a lot of old-timers around here that I will not go into again.

    LOL! No, he's a paid reporter working for CSN as their "Kings Insider." HUGE difference.

    I agree with you. I wouldn't trade Boogie straight up for Davis. Boogie is the more dominant player and less injury prone. The age gap is less significant than the talent gap. Great minds think alike ;)

    Would be interesting if they trade him, and he just resigns with the Kings.

    I think another FO might be behind it, but the thing is, before Vlade/FO verbally tendered this offer nobody was coming up with a godfather offer

    From Ham's article on CSN:

    I just think there is something there. Carmichael Dave was told there was some smoke too. Those guys never say that about trade rumors. I would hope we could land more than Buddy Hield and a 1st rounder. I am a big fan of DMC, and DO NOT want him to be traded, especially with Vlade orchestrating the trade.
