I love Cousins' ability. But there will be some really good big guys at the top of this draft. I wouldn't trade our best player (Kemba) and a draft pick for Cousins when we can get someone nearly as good in April.

Kemba and MKG should be considered untouchable. Everyone else is expendable for a guy the quality of Cousins.


The big guys like Noel, Zeller and Len are no where close to Cousins.

Trade Kemba, Taylor, Mullens, 1st for Cousins

2013 Lineup:
PG: CP3, Sessions
SG: Hendo, Gordon
SF: MKG
PF: Biz, Warrick
C: Cousins

As I said earlier I love Cousins' ability, but a post player that is only shooting 41% from the field isn't exactly gangbusters.

He's a nut case that isn't playing up to his full ability this season. That's why he's shooting 41%.

I am not a big fan of how Noel would fit in with this team.

But Zeller, Len, and even Isiah Austin would make us competitive as soon as they stepped on our court.

If we kept our pick and Kemba and MKG, while also picking up Cousins, we could have a really talented and young staring lineup next year.

Could you imagine having Kemba, Ben Gordon/Sessions, MKG, Cousins, and Zeller/Len/Noel/Austin starting lineup??

Tell me how we're going to keep Kemba, our 1st and still get Cousins?

Would you trade away your Franchise PG for Cousins if MJ goes after CP3?


Going after an all-star with knee problems who's on his way down while the guy we have is on his way up?

It'd make a nice NBA 2K13 roster. But not one in real life. The management said they want to build through the draft. Don't fug it up by trading Kemba.

And yeah CP3 would totally leave the team with the best record in the NBA to join one of the bottom 3 teams in the league.

Im really happy I gave you a good laugh. You need it anyway.
Sure CP3 has injuries here and there but he's still only 27. His injuries is no where close to being like Brandon Roy so I wouldnt worry.

Why are you stressing about trading Kemba anyway? Theres not even any rumors out about a trade involving Kemba. I'm just saying the only way a trade for Cousins would make sense is if it involve a caliber of Kemba. Im not Cho or MJ, but if I was pushing to get a player like Cousins and trading away Kemba, our best bet is to go FA and try to lure CP3. Who said CP3 wouldnt want to come here? Can you read his mind? His a native here, went to Wake, and MJ is a huge sponsor of CP3. If we can land Cousins, he and MKG are good pieces to lure CP3 here. No one knows if Paul is going to resign with LA.

The rumor started from Yahoo's Power rankings. The offer of involving Kemba is most likely correct. It would take a package involving Kemba or multiple first round picks and players (Also Biz would probably be moved as well in either deal.

Why would he not resign? So he could leave a title contender to go to a cellar-dweller? There is no way Chris Paul is a Bobcat. Mark it down and put it in the books. But if it were me I'd avoid Cousins like the plague. Dude has been suspended three times and the season is just a third finished.

We may have to take on salmons contract(SAC is a bit down on him) which im ok with and send them an expiring diop. Im guessing something similar to that along with biyombo and lottery protected pics

There is a rumor about the Cousins to Charlotte trade offer involving Kemba.

This is the rumor right now that the Bobcats offered the Kings something they couldn't refuse. Indicating that it would involve either Kemba or MKG.


The current rumor online is Kemba, Biz and a 1st. Could also be Biz, 2 first, Mullens for Cousins.

Heard about the cant refuse part but haven't heard any Kemba talk. Have to check in a bit. But I would be sure that if any trade invoking for Cousins would have to involve Kemba.

Kemba is an upcoming Star for us and in the league but in order to win and contend you gotta win in the paint. Cousins would be the first big part getting us there IF he can get his head straight.

2013 upcoming FA PGs includes CP3, Tyreke Evans and Jennings.
