    I would rather the Lakers not get Cousins.

    To get Cousins, I would imagine they would have to give up Randle and their number 2(Okafor most likely). That's not a bad haul for Cousins

    Lakers get Cousins
    Kings get Vucevic

    Magic get 2nd and 6th pick ?

    Interesting......

    I'll wait for Burt Steele before I make any hypothesis on a Cousins trade.

    I'm not as high on Cousins as most people are, but even I wouldn't do this if I were the Kings. Cousins is far from perfect but he's not what's holding the team back.

    I really hope to God the Lakers don't benefit from this and it falls through.

    F the Fakers.

    Even if it doesn't happen. It shows how Okafor / Towns might not be as advertised as ppl think. I really think Russell is going to be the star of this draft.

    You do that deal right away if your the Lakers and Kings and Magic.

    Lakers-Boogie
    Kings-Vucevic
    Magic-2nd Pick and you still have your 5th pick

    Yeah, no kidding. Is Vlade a mole from the Lakers? Next thing you know, we'll hear he also threw the 2002 WCF.

    On a slightly more serious note, the Lakers would have to give up a lot for Cousins. Why not just draft Okafor, get Randle back, and keep rebuilding? Yes, they'll stink for a few more years, but that's life for most of the NBA.

    I can see something like this happening and Lakers getting Love...

    I hate to say it.

    If they get Cousins and Love then its feasible to see them contend again.

    Get rid of Boogie. May have burned his bridges there but who knows.
