Is Demarcus Cousins on his way to Boston? When the Celtics waived two prospects Kris Joseph and Jarvis Varnado earlier Sunday morning, it was seen as minor cost cutting moves. Both of their contracts were about to become guaranteed and the Celtics didn’t want to deal with it. That may not have been the case reports CSN’s A. Sherrod Blakely. #Celticstalk: The #Celtics decision to waive Vernado AND Joseph, opens the door for what one league source says may be a “blockbuster” deal. — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) January 7, 2013 Hmm, what could qualify as a “blockbuster” deal for the Boston Celtics? The only name that has been shopped around recently is the Kings center Demarcus Cousins, but earlier reports said this week said the deal was “unlikely”. Who could the mystery player be? #Celticstalk: The name that keeps coming up with everyone I speak with about the #Celtics and trades, is #Kings stud DeMarcus Cousins. — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) January 7, 2013 This would certainly be news considering that Cousins is the most coveted player on the trade-market. The fact that the Boston Celtics waived two players to do it means that they are also taking in extra salary if a deal is imminent. Only four players on the roster qualify as a “high-salary” player and the only one that would qualify as a “trade piece” would be Jeff Green. I’ll let you guess who the other three players are. If Cousins is indeed the target, it remains to be seen what the prospects that the Celtics would be sending to Sacramento. They don’t need another low-post man so that would seem to take Sullinger off the board. The only player I can see that the Kings might covet would be Avery Bradley, but they also already have a two-guard. Maybe Danny Ainge convinced the Kings that Jeff Green was the second coming of Larry Bird, to which I laugh. Certainly need to keep our eyes on this over the next 24 hours.
