DeMarcus Cousins leaving Kings in 2018?
If the Sacramento Kings think that DeMarcus Cousins is staying for a while, many analysts say then they are dead wrong. Rumors are swirling that Cousins will leave the Kings when he hits free agency by 2018.

It should not take much to lure the explosive DeMarcus Cousins out of Sacramento. The very moment he signed up with the Kings the team has been already in disarray, and he hasn’t been particularly coy about expressing his disapproval with its coaches and management style.

DeMarcus Cousins have long been rumored in trades with various teams, but reports say he was hoping for a fresh start. That fresh outlook has come in the form of its new coach Dave Joerger.

Basketball analysts say the Kings, led by its star player Rudy Gay, is being “delusional” in believing it can keep its center mainly through Dave Joerger. DeMarcus Cousins is not exactly the kind of player who’s easy to deal with.

The Rudy Gay squad has changed coaches six times in four years, highlighted with Cousins’ most recent conflict with George Karl.

According to a report by Parent Herald, truth-be-told, the talented center is now rumored to be traded to the Toronto Raptors in the hope of building their own super team in an era of super teams started by Kevin Durant joining Stephen Curry and the Warriors.

The Raptors, beloved for nearly defeating LeBron James and Kyrie Irving of the Cavs in last season’s playoffs, hope to acquire Cousins to finish what they’ve started alongside Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan.

Will the new partnership of Cousins, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan take off against the likes of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the Eastern Conference? Or against Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry?

We are awaiting updates on this deal, as both teams still haven’t made any formal comments, as reported by the Gospel Herald.

DeMarcus Cousins performed well in Rio, where such experience is expected to boost his maturity after playing among the best in the league with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Carmelo Anthony.
