Can we just get in the playoffs already?
One more quote:
This would indicate to me that Ham is just piggy-backing off Woj's info, not that he has any info of his own.

I'm told DeMarcus Cousins (still) is not being traded, even as teams inquire about his availability. Nothing's changed
I do not think so. It means Woj was the first to report it, then Ham confirmed the story with his own source. I am not agreeing with them on it, or saying they are right, just saying there have been 1000 DMC trade rumors in the past and Ham never can confirm them enough to write a story. Maybe I have missed a story or two but do not recall them
I read Hams post. He said Kings are enamored with Buddy and Jrue Holiday. I get that but Jrue is an UFA this summer if I am not mistaken. So Kings are going to get rid of Boogie for Buddy, future draft picks, and an UFA ? I don't like that at all! Thats a joke!
OMG. Smoke does not equal fire. And you're wrong. They say that about some trade rumors. But hey, if you think the sky is falling, I'm not gonna argue. We'll all know in a few days.
Agree...IF we did decide to trade DMC, we better land something like Ben Simmons and Okafer or Andrew Wiggins or Russell and Ingram. Not Buddy Hield and a 1st rounder
Jones is closer. He debunked it
7:46 pm: In an article published Sunday evening, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical says that Vivek Ranadive‘s stance on trading DeMarcus Cousins has “softened”. Previously the owner wanted to retain Cousins as a franchise pillar and, as recently as January 26, wouldn’t even entertain the prospect of making a deal.
More recently, Wojnarowski writes, Ranadive has been influenced by off-court incidents that call to question the big man’s temperament.
Debatable. Davis is more efficient scorer (57.5% career TS) and comparable passer (0.9 assist to turnover) but Boogie makes more threes gets to the foul line more and sets up his teammates better. Davis blocks more shots. Its close. I'd choose Boogie over Davis because he has a wider offensive arsenal and will be more durable as their careers progress.
He did. And Boogie said he wants to be here. And Vlade said he would be here. And...
we/you have Vivek Ranadive as an owner. And so everything, EVERYTHING is eternally at risk because you can't trust him to hold his water. You hope he does, but when nonsense like this starts bouncing around, you can never 100% discount it because he's as flighty and ignorant as the Maloofs. You just can't know for sure until it doesn't happen.
If this article is true, our franchise sucks.
Read the article linked to in the KingFan80 post above mine. If that doesn't make you vomit, nothing will.
I agree..what is Vivek doing? If this is true, he really is all over the place
I think the guy is a complete idiot but he is a complete idiot with connections inside the organization and has always been the first to shoot down Boogie trade rumors, at least since being the "Kings insider".

Cousins is the only player not to have entered the game. Wouldn't be surprised if Cuz told Kerr he wanted to rest tonight
Jason Jones @mr_jasonjones 22s22 seconds ago
That of course, would only fuel trade rumors.
It starts and stops with Vivek, if he meddles, Boogie is gone sooner than we think. Vivek changes his mind with the seasons and that's dangerous...the dysfunction doesn't stop as long has he is here, either that or he changes for the better.
Jason Jones @mr_jasonjones 45s46 seconds ago
Cousins is checking in. Yay!
That's what I was wondering too. I turned the game on to watch Boogie and Wall play, yet Boogie is the only one who hasn't. Extra rest it is!
I think the Kings are looking for a young franchise player+ 1st round pick. Something like this:
Nuggets: Nikola Jokic+ 2017 1st rounder
Suns: Devin Booker+ 2017 1st rounder
Unfortunately, both of those players are untouchables. If we decide to trade Cousins, I don't think it'll be the end of the world... as long as it's not a deal with NO. They have nothing to offer us...
Boy, Steve Kerr really doesn't like Boogie, does he?
Steve Kerr is an idiot. I love how people act like he is a great coach.
Barely. Could be the agents told the staff to throw him in for a few minutes, not to do anything that could risk injury so it wouldn't look so obvious.
Terrible trades. Booker is putting up impressive numbers on a bad team. Jokic is a good player. Boogie salivates when he goes up against him. That outta tell you something.
Oh come on. That's delusional.
It'll be pretty hard to stick it out with this franchise if Vivek ships Cuz out.
Depends on what we get back of course, but considering it's a "Rent-a-Cuz", I seriously doubt any GM is going to give us anything worth jettisoning a HOF level talent who is also too loyal for his own good.
I still think we'll probably be breathing our usual sighs of relief when the deadline comes and goes and Cuz is still here....I trust Cuz when he says he wants to be here. I trust Vlade when he says he wants to keep him. But Vivek? All I can trust him to do is make turrible decisions.... so hopefully he let's our GM decide what to do.

Cousins checks out with 3 points in 3 minutes.
If we did trade DMC, we would need like Andrew Wiggins and Rubio in return. We need a star player back not a prospect
