The Charlotte Bobcats have been struggling this season. Charlotte Bobcats
The team recently snapped an 18-game losing streak that lasted nearly more than a month. The Bobcats management have reportedly targeted a big man that they would like to acquire in a trade.
The Bobcats are the latest team to say they are interested in Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins. They are in desperate need for a young star to build the franchise around, and could offer young players and draft picks to the Kings exchange for Cousins.
However, GM Geoff Petrie is not willing to trade Cousins right now.
“He’s not going anywhere,” said Petrie. “You can lay that to rest. Some of that stuff lives in its own reality.”
Cousins was suspended by the team for arguing with head coach Keith Smart before Christmas. He was reinstated by the team on Christmas Eve.
After the run-in with Smart, the team suggested that Cousins see a psychiatrist. It is not known if Cousins has seen one yet.
He has played in 25 games this season, and is averaging 16.3 points per game. He is also averaging 9.5 points and 2.5 assists per game.
If the Kings do decide to trade Cousins to the Bobcats, the Bobcats would get a starting power forward right away. He would replace Byron Mullens, who has been the starting power forward for the team.
The Bobcats currently have an 8-23 record. Last season, they had the worst record in NBA history at 7-59.

CLEVELAND -- DeMarcus Cousins is standing near his locker in the visitors dressing room, dancing and playfully yelling at teammates scattered across the room.
Hey, stop singing in the shower, man, Cousins says, to no avail.

DETROIT -- DeMarcus Cousins is a very talented NBA player. That doesn't mean the Pistons should try to get him.
Cousins was chosen by the Sacramento Kings with the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, two slots ahead of Greg Monroe. Because the two play the same position and the Pistons were interested in Cousins back then, people often link the two players.
Kurt Helin had a good update on the ongoing DaMarcus Cousins situation over at NBC Sports. A few interesting things from the article; first, that Kings GM Geoff Petrie flat out said that Cousins was not on the trading block.
You can put that one to rest. He’s not going anywhere. You can lay that to rest. Some of that stuff lives in its own reality.

DeMarcus Cousins was suspended one game by the Sacramento Kings for his actions in an altercation with head coach Keith Smart. He was suspended for kicking O.J Mayo in the groin. He was fined for getting into an altercation with broadcaster Sean Elliot. He's been a mess. And the Kings may not want to deal with it much longer. They could look to trade him. As we mentioned...
Well it's been awhile since I compared Boogie Cuz to Marvin from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (and I'm right dammit!), but well, apparently DeMarcus Cousins got the message about what passing actually means from the right spots on the floor. It's amazing (and depressing) that the best passer on this team is Cousins who also leads the team in Field Goal attempts...

The Kings arrive as one of the leagues most discussed teams, but for all the wrong reasons. DeMarcus Cousins, their talented young center, has been suspended for a shouting match with coach Keith Smart, one of the most laid-back people in world history. Itd be a surprise if Cousins is still with the team following the trading deadline. The Cavs, meanwhile, have lost...
