NBA Trade Rumors: Sacramento Kings Trading De Marcus Cousins For Miami Heat Goran Dragic? [VIDEO]

Close

NBA trade rumors are heating up on a possible trade deal between Sacramento King DeMarcus Cousins and Miami Heat Goran Dragic. Other trade rumors involves Rudy Gay and Hassan Whiteside.

Sacramento Kings DeMarcus Cousins Trade Prospect

DeMarcus Cousins is no doubt of Sacramento Kings' superstar player; however, there have been rumors that Cousins is reportedly available for trade. A number of NBA teams are rumored to be willing to give up their most promising young players in exchange for Cousins. Unfortunately, the Kings will not trade him for any player, unless he has the same superstar quality, according to sportsrageous.

Sacramento Kings - Miami Heat Trade Talks

The Kings and Heat were reportedly negotiating for a trade since the beginning of July. Initially, the Kings wanted a point guard that could play alongside Cousins, according to ESPN Writer Zach Lowe. The negotiation may or may not have included Goran Dragic as possible trade to the Sacramento team.

Heat - Kings Hypothetical Trade Deal

The Miami Heat's prospects in the 2016-2017 season is questionable at best due to the recent loss of Dwyane Wade, who signed up with the Chicago Bulls. Meanwhile, Chris Bosh is still unavailable until his blot clot condition improves.

NBA pundits are proposing a hypothetical trade deal between the Kings and the Heat. This deal will involve the trade of Cousins and Gay for Dragic and Whiteside. This possible trade will not improve the Sacramento King's chances and will not get another superstar in return.

DeMarcus is currently one of the best center players in NBA right now, but that is not enough to bring the Kings to victory. There are also reports that indicate Cousins will be free agent on 2018. With Dragic in the team, the Kings will have at least a reliable backcourt player. It is important to note that this is a hypothetical trade deal that may or may not push through.
