Things are heating up with Sacramento and a potential DeMarcus Cousins trade.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojanarowski, the Kings were fully engaged in trade talks centered on Cousins with multiple teams on Sunday.

Some thought the Celtics could have been one of those teams, considering the assets they have, but that was not the case. The Celtics were not one of the teams speaking with the Kings on Sunday about a potential Cousins deal, according to the Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett.

Wojanarowski reports the Lakers were turned down by the Kings and now talks are focused on a trade with the Pelicans.

Even though it doesn’t look like the Celtics were in on Cousins, they still likely will try and make a trade before Thursday’s trade deadline.

It remains to be seen whether or not the Celtics will make a huge splash at the deadline, but if they don’t it’s possible they look to improve their team with a few smaller moves.

A smaller move could be acquiring Suns wing-man P.J. Tucker.

It remains to be seen whether or not the Celtics will make a huge splash at the deadline, but if they don’t it’s possible they look to improve their team with a few smaller moves.

A smaller move could be acquiring Suns wing-man P.J. Tucker.

According to the Sporting News’ Sean Deveney, the Celtics have “expressed deep interest” in Tucker.

He’s averaging seven points and six rebounds this season with the Suns, and has an expiring contract.

Obviously, this wouldn’t be a huge move, but would still improve the roster by adding depth at a position that needs it, as well as being able to hold on to larger assets.

Another trade deadline, another week of DeMarcus Cousins trade talks.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Sacramento has been engaging in trade talks on All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins in recent days.

Wojnarowski notes New Orleans and the Kings have had recent discussions, but the Kings are still debating Cousins’ future internally.

If they are inclined, the Celtics certainly have the assets to make a trade happen with all of their draft picks, but it’s a matter of would the Celtics actually want to swing a deal to land Cousins. Cousins does not have a good reputation across the league when it comes to his attitude.

The 26-year-old is signed through the end of next season and is averaging 27.8 points and 10.7 rebounds per game this season with the Kings.

When it comes to the Celtics, this is certainly a player that is worth monitoring as Thursdays trade deadline nears.

The answer could be yes, and yes as the NBA trade deadline fast approaches.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the two teams have engaged in preliminary talks on a potential deal, but “have not gotten far down the road on it.”

Wojnarowski notes the Bulls organization needs to be fully in agreement that they want to rebuild and thus trade such a good player in Butler.

If the Bulls do indeed want to trade Butler, the Celtics have a number of high draft picks, which is what the Bulls would want, but then it would be a question of exactly what picks it would take to get a deal done.

Butler is 27 years old and is averaging 24.5 points per game this season. The guard is signed through the 2019-20 season.
