I would love to have Cousins: 

 

Maybe #4, Portland Pick and ___________....(Not Kemba, MKG or Biz) 

 

I hate giving up two picks but would do it.

Two first rounder for a player that may or may not resign with us and on top of that is an extreme head case? Yeah... not happening.

What if it's a sign and trade with Cousins getting a 4 year deal. I myself wouldn't do it either way.

As long as it's Portland's pick (and not Detroit's which is much more valuable) and we are not throwing any players in the deal.

Wouldn't you need to throw in players to match salaries?

Unless I'm missing something here... DMC would have to resign with us if we wanted to resign him; he'll be a restricted FA. 

 

I'd probably give up two firsts (#4 and Portland pick), as well as Sessions or something for a talent like him, but only after sitting down with him and asking him how he would feel in Charlotte (although I'm not sure if we could legally talk to him). I absolutely do want a motivated DeMarcus Cousins (we're talking a 20-10 big with great passing skills and a jumper), but if Cousins isn't feeling Charlotte then I wouldn't do the trade.

I'm not sure, I think if the team receiving the player has enough cap room then it shouldn't matter. We clearly have enough cap room to take in his 3m base salary for this year.

ESPN Insider has some potential trades up...

 

Cavs giving up #1, Waiters, and Zeller for Cousins.

 

Also has them dealing Varejao, #19, & #31 to CHI for Deng

 

 

Yeah if they're willing to give up anywhere close to that in terms of pieces, the Horncats have no shot. 

 

Damn imgaine that: Kyrie, Deng, Thompson, and Cousins. That's a nasty bunch.

If they trade for cousins, we won't have any pick in the draft.

Just what a young, building team needs. Lol.

How is he going to behave when they are in one of their 14 game losing streaks next season?

Well they will only get 45 games from Kyrie so it won't be that nasty.

This is exactly what I came in here to say.  With an ego like his and his potential to pout and have tantrums, I'm not sure how well he would fit in with a losing culture in the midst of trying to turn things around.

 

It's not like he brings winning and veteran experience to the table.  Talent, no question, but right now we need the intangibles that I feel he lacks.  My two cents.

Like hell I would trade two firsts for RUN DMC, forget that.

I would give them our 4th overall pick and Ramon Sessions, nothing more than that.

Then we could just sign a back-up point guard in free agency like Nate Robinson, Jose Calderon, or Jarrett Jack.

I like the way you think... Having Nate Robinson back up Kemba (or have him play the 1 and Kemba the 2 off the bench) would be incredible!

Three days ago I would say no thanks.  Is Ewing is definitely an assistant maybe he can serve as a mentor and developer for Cousins.  Think what a huge different Charles Oakley had with Kwame Brown?  The best season of his career was with Oakley on the bench, maybe Ewing could have a similar effect with Cousins.  If this trade went down, like y'all are saying, Kemba, MKG, Biz are not available and this pick and portlands pick...not Detroit. 

 

Another thing to consider...Cho is all about "acquiring assets" in order to build his teams..so don't be surprised if the 'Cats use extra picks for situations just like this. 

 

IMO, it would require an extension and a highly confident Ewing.

I would, he is a solid player that can be great when he matures. That being said not every player matures but I feel he is worth the risk. I would love to get him.
