Boogie Cousins Has Been Traded
Via Woj: "Sacramento has agreed to trade DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans, league source tells @TheVertical."
HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN AINGE? DID YOU SEE THAT JOKE OF AN OFFER THE KINGS GOT? YOU ARE SO LUCKY THE NETS ARE ALREADY 14.5 GAMES BEHIND THE KINGS BECAUSE THAT FRANCHISE IS A JOKE NOW!
It took me a lot to go through that without swearing. But in all seriousness, there is no excuse for Danny Ainge here. He can no longer justify paying Al Horford a max contract when this is all it takes for the best center in the NBA. That is now two trades in the past week or so where Ainge sat on his hands and didn't pull the trigger. He didn't do it with Serge Ibaka, and he still didn't do it for Boogie. I understand it's a deep draft and that Brooklyn is bad (maybe not far and away the worst team in the NBA now) but when the time comes to acquire a legitimate superstar like Boogie to team up with a legitimate superstar like Isaiah, not taking it is a move that can do nothing but hurt you.
Oh, and the Celtics aren't getting Jimmy Butler either.
