A report from NBC on Sunday indicated the Celtics were pushing to complete a deal for controversial but talented Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins, but Danny Ainge's preference to include Courtney Lee instead of Avery Bradley was holding it up.
A note from the NBAonNBC Twitter feed read: Sources close to nbaonnbc.com confirm that Danny Ainge is working to complete a deal to bring Cousins to Boston, tonight.
However, a tweet from USA Today's Sam Amick later in the day shot down that rumor. Wrote Amick: DeMarcus Cousins is not going to the Celtics. Teams continue to be told that he's not available. That is all.
