DeMarcus Cousins




Boogie Cousins is on his way to Minnesota.  This after very brief trade talks with Orlando GM Javi.  We have always had close contact with Javi on a lot of deals, and he reached out saying he was interested in some picks in the top 10 and an established starter.  We were able to flip our #7 pick for the #9 pick and #26 pick in a deal with Indiana and Oklahoma City.  This gave us multiple picks in the 1st round and Jonas to offer, and Javi agreed to the deal. 

 

The deal won’t be completed until after the draft, but both teams got something they wanted.  The Timberwolves scouts and assistant GMs are a little annoyed with Spudspace after furious draft preparation has all gone to waste.  Being able to bring in one of the best big men in the league was an opportunity just too good to pass up here though. 

 

After other trades to be completed after the draft, this is what our starting lineup should look like:

 

C

DeMarcus Cousins

PF

Jabari Parker

SF

Danilo Gallinari

SG

C.J. McCollum

PG

Jeff Teague

C

Zaza Pachulia

PF

Nemanja Bjelica

SF

Evan Fournier

SG

Glenn Robinson III

PG

Deron Williams

 

 

This is assuming we are able to resign all of these players, which may be more difficult as Jeff Teague may be on the way out in the NBA.  It’s unclear of the future of some of the players, but we plan to have max GM points to spend to keep our players. 

 

While Jabari Parker is still recovering from his injury, the plan is to start either Zaza or Salah Mejri at Center and move Boogie to PF.  Jabari is targeting a healthy return by the all-star break, and we hope to keep afloat until he gets back.  

 

In the end, we flipped:

 

Paul George

Wes Matthews

Tyson Chandler

 

for

 

DeMarcus Cousins

Danilo Gallinari

Evan Fournier
