Rumor: Celtics looking for a trade after they waive Varnado, Joesph

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 7, 2013 at 1:15 AM


Once I saw the headline that the Celtics waived Joesph, and Varnado I knew something was up. Nothing is nowhere near complete. But the rumors are flying, and Cousins is the guy that seems to be thrown into the mix. But the question that many have is what do the Celtics have to give the Kings? Would they want Courtney Lee, or a Brandon Bass, who can't be traded until January 15th.


A. Sherrod Blakely @SherrodbCSN #Celticstalk: The name that keeps coming up with everyone I speak with about the #Celtics and trades, is #Kings stud DeMarcus Cousins.


Cousins seems to good to be true. He's putting up some good numbers right now. In his last five games he's put up 22 points, and 14 rebounds per game. Would the Kings truly trade their problem child for what the Celtics have? I would love this guy he could be a true blessing for Rondo. I just don't see Cousins having problems in Boston. But I also don't see this trade going down.


This trade would be huge for the Celtics. Cousins would give the Celtics what they lack, and it could change the course of the Eastern Conference.

According to league sources, the Celtics have, indeed, inquired about Cousins, but that shouldn’t come as a great revelation in that they, like most every  NBA club, are constantly checking the marketplace to see if a bargain can be had.

Word is, however, that the Kings are asking for a high draft pick and people who can help them now. So, forgetting the fact the Celts’ first-round pick will be middle of the road at best, would you want to part with a young starter (and more) for someone as uncertain as Cousins?

Considering the talent the Kings already have in the backcourt, it’s possible the Celtics can’t even muster something that would be attractive enough for Sacramento — at least not at this moment. And you’d have to question whether you’d give up even equal talent for this guy, his abilities notwithstanding. What we know right now is that the Kings aren’t inclined to hold a fire sale.

It's just that I can't see another team wanting to give us a good player in return for players we don't really want that much...

Agreed, but look at what the Lakers have pulled off in the past? Gasol deal ring a bell. I don't see the deal happening, but another trade will.

Nobody wants Green for sure. I see the Celtics giving up Sully without question.

I don't want to give up Sully. If he gains some muscle power, and keeps working on his skills, he could be a center. A real center.
