    Default Raps Make a Deal for Demarcus Cousins

    Raptors Receive: Cousins, Brooks, Hayes, Salmons

    King Receive: Bargnani, Jose, Jonas

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine

    I think this deal works for both sides. The Kings get a young centre who will replace Cousins and develop, a big man who could score, and an expiring PG.
    Raptors get a very talented player (15-10 guy, with 20-10 potential) along with a good backup PG and some bad contracts.
    Many teams have been linked to Cousins in a trade, but none have a young centre like Jonas to offer. (Teams were Charlotte, Boston, Dallas and other)
    Thoughts?

    Note: This is just a proposal that I thought up....i cant change the title.

    This isn't April 1, is it? The title and the fact that it is in Everything Raptors and not the Trade Proposal Forum got my attention. False alarm.

    I'm not a mod but I think everyone would agree that 1) proposed/fantasy trades go in trade forum, and 2) "Raps make a Deal for Demarcus Cousins" is beyond misleading and unnecessary.

    lets just look at the trade a little

    pretty much our with the trade team is Lowry, DeRozan, Ross, Ed Davis/ Amir Johnson, Cousins

    instead of Lowry/ Calderon, DeRozan, Ross, Ed Davis/ Bargnani, JV/ Amir Johnson

    so all our depth just to replace cousins for JV...I love it
    if our GM and team really believe Cousins can be a 20-10 guy then go for it
    JV as it sits still needs probably 2-3 years to get there whereas Cousins can do it this year or next
    our "depth" is overrated as we are not a good team
    good teams have depth, bad teams just have a bunch of players that are close to each other in skill

    That's because no GM with a brain and a young C prospect would give him up for Cousins.

    I'm not a big believer in the 'you know a player in his 3rd season', because I believe some guys are late bloomers. But in terms of character and what kind of player is going to show up to work every day, it's pretty correct. It's ridiculously rare that a guy like Cousins, or say, Zach Randolph, get their head on straight. It took a long time for Randolph, and the obvious threat that if he didn't become a pro and buy in somewhere, he'd never get a real chance again.

    Guys please, post your fantasy trades in the proposal sub-forum here and not the main Raptors forum. The titles are very misleading and annoying. Ugh!

    I wouldn't trade JV for a headcase.

    It's a deal that might have a chance of going down if Geoff Pietrie and Bryan Colangelo were butt buddies.
