I did some research and these articles are from SI. They have their own "fan-blog" portal called Fansided.
The article suggests trading young assets for Cousins in order to pair up Harden, Lin and Cousins.
I think it makes sense, but I do believe something like this could go down as the Rockets have a lot of assets. Pacers should definitely get involved.
Here is my take:
Why: Pacers unload DJ and Hans. They get a very good backup PF/C in Greg Smith, who is also a college buddy of PG. Jones could be the PF of the future. Fredette is a bad fit for the Kings and should flourish in the half court set of the Pacers.
1st from Rockets (possibly 2)
1st from Pacers
Why: They need to trade Cousins, and hit the reset button. They don't want large contracts, but young players, expirings and picks. They get that here. Kings are stacked at the PF position, so they get a young and good SF and a young sg. They get a replacement C in Assik, who is a rebounding machine.
Why: Well, they get to pair up Cousins with Harden and Lin. Now they are a young and lethal team. Should be alley oops city with
LeeLin and Harden setting up Cousins for easy points. Hansbrough will bring great energy off the bench.
