According to CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely, the latest buzz around a trade for temperamental big man DeMarcus Cousins is the Kings seeking multiple young players and draft picks. While the Celtics could pull off such a move, in a package based around Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger with others such as Courtney Lee, Fab Melo, Brandon Bass, etc., Danny Ainge should walk away and let some other team inherit that headache. A one-two punch of Rajon Rondo and Cousins for the next few years looks great on paper, but it would be a ticking time bomb waiting to blow the team up. Both guys have been known for their volatility. Rondo butting heads with Doc Rivers has been well documented, as well as his hate for video screens. Cousins has already been suspended three times this year alone. So why not put these two guys together? I mean Doc's job is getting too easy anyway, right? All it would take for the Rondo-Cousins pairing to implode would be a stretch of bad games or an early round playoff
