Reports: Kings, Celtics haven’t even discussed DeMarcus Cousins trade

Remember that report that the Heat, Celtics and Bulls are interested in trading for DeMarcus Cousins?

Miami already denied any intent to trade Hassan Whiteside – who’d be the logical centerpiece of any Cousins swap – for the Kings center.

It doesn’t appear Boston is hot on the trail, either.

Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald:

Sam Amick of USA Today:

Bulpett is well-connected in Boston, Amick in Sacramento. I tend to trust them on this.

The Kings have given little indication they’d deal Cousins anywhere. If it comes to it – and it might not – Sacramento would reportedly fire George Karl before trading Cousins. The Kings seem more committed to Cousins than any other aspect of their organization.

If that changes, the Celtics – loaded with draft picks and a few intriguing players – would be a logical trade partner. But at this point, everything sounds hypothetical.
