This could be a big hit for everyone if Sacramento Kings accept a trade from Orlando Magic. Yes, they can send a really hot offer for DeMarcus Cousins, and Sacramento Kings are looking for the best offer, doesn’t matter if Orlando Magic or Boston Celtics are on the other side of the table.

According to Hoops Rumors:

The Kings have shown no inclination to trading Cousins, particularly since they’re in the running for a playoff spot, as Mannix emphasizes. If that dynamic changes, Orlando has enough young pieces and expendables bigs to make an attractive offer for Cousins, Mannix continues. A package that includes Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic would hold some appeal to Sacramento and give the Magic a clearcut franchise player to build around, in Mannix’s view.

Orlando’s glut of power forwards and centers has left Mario Hezonja, the fifth overall pick in 2015, scrounging for minutes despite a lack of floor spacers, Mannix adds. Hezonja would benefit from Orlando paring some frontcourt players.

However, Orlando Magic can add Serge Ibaka because he will be a free agent next season, so Kings can try to offer him a max contract over the summer.

I don’t see how the Celtics’ offer than Orlando Magic’ offer. Cousins is the best big man in the league, but everyone knows that he will not sign with Sacramento Kings.

After Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard, maybe Orlando is a destiny for the best centers in the NBA.
