Kings’ GM says DeMarcus Cousins Not on the Trading Block

Many have speculated that several teams are very interested in embattled Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, but GM Geoff Petrie says no way.

While there has been a lot of buzz about it, don’t expect to see a DeMarcus Cousins trade anytime soon.

Why not? There are a few reasons.

Kings GM Geoff Petrie says the key one is Cousins is not on the trade block. He was very direct about it when speaking to David Aldridge writing for NBA.com.

“You can put that one to rest,” Petrie said. “He’s not going anywhere. You can lay that to rest. Some of that stuff lives in its own reality.”

Many Kentucky fans would love for the former Wildcat to be traded to a place he could get some veteran leadership and really just be happy.

Doesn’t sound like the case yet, but one has to wonder how long Demarcus Cousins will be in Sacramento.
