Re: How about this trade?

I think Pscyho T is a better player than Bass. Why would Indiana lose him and a pick for Bass is beyond me.
From SAC point of view, I wouldn't that either. Cousins is too talented to give up.
I would be thrilled to have DeMarcus Cousins but I don't see it happening.
In response to srinivasa's comment:
Boston Celtics receive: DeMarcus Cousins
Sacramento Kings receive: first-round pick (from Boston), first-round pick (from Indiana), Tyler Hansbrough
Indiana Pacers receive: Brandon Bass
It is no secret why the Celtics would covet Cousins and Indiana is looking for an upgrade off the bench from Psycho T.
Sacramento meanwhile, rids itself of one headache and receives two first-round picks in the process. Of course, the picks would come in different years, giving the Kings the flexibility of having multiple first round selections in multiple years. Whether it is moving up in a draft, or using the picks to acquire a valued player, Sacramento would have options to help accelerate the rebuilding process.
While he is certainly a handful, Cousins would be put in position to thrive in Boston. He would have a large role on a championship contender, while also being under the tutelage of Kevin Garnett.
