DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall and Eric Bledsoe played together on one pretty great Kentucky team.

Could Cousins (Kings), Wall (Wizards) and Bledsoe (Suns) reunite in the NBA?

CSN Mid-Atlantic:

Cousins, according to Ben Standig of ‘Locked on Wizards,’ said that Wall and him have discussed the possibility before along with Suns guard Eric Bledsoe, who was also on their Kentucky team.

“Do we ever talk about playing with one another? … It’s come up,” Cousins said. “He wants me here. Eric [Bledsoe] wants us in Phoenix.”

Cousins went on to say several times that if he had it his way, the reunion would happen in Sacramento.

“They’re all going to come to Sacramento. Come to Sac,” he joked. “Play with John and Eric again? You never know what will happen. It’s the NBA, so hopefully one day he’ll be in a Sacramento uniform.”


Maybe Cousins intends to stay longer in Sacramento than it seems. After all, he becomes a free agent in 2018 – a year before Wall and Bledsoe.

Or maybe Cousins wishes more ill on his former college teammates than you’d think.

Most likely, Cousins is just expressing fondness for friends and knows it’s best to avoid making waves right now by suggesting a desire to play elsewhere.
