Lowry
Ross
Gay
Cousins
JV

Pretty good lineup. You have great inside/outside scoring. If Ross turns out to be a good player that'll be even better.

We could've had Drummond and JV but Cousins and JV would sure make up for that

I`d rather have cousins, fits better IMO, more offensive potential and intensity. Plus he could play PF full time.

Well its really just the 2015 pick, but if they want to sign him to a max salary they will. I dont think any sign and trade with Demar would sway them too much. But I guess I am being overly-optimistic.

Get a third team involved for that sweetner if at all possible. Then do what you have to do to sign Tony Allen.


Lowry
Allen
Gay
Cousins
Valanciunas

Yeah. That's a good guess. This year the starting max salaries for players in the 0-5 experience raNge were $13.66 (Lopez and Hibbert), so it should go up slightly by the time his max started.

I like his aggressiveness and talent - as some here have pointed out to myself, players do grow up since they are people too. Besides Cousins is only 22 years old.....I would have him and his baggage on the Raps in a New York minute.
Oh I don't doubt his talent and I would give anyone but Val on this team for him but I was just stating the mental difference between him and McGee.

I don't want Cousins. It would take way too much in trade, and there are too many issues and risks. I don't think this is the place to develop him. Send him to a vet team, not a team that is itself developing a talented youngster at the same position.

wow that's a ton of money for a guy who is proven to be a more of head case than a player,

won't be surprised to see him on the move during the draft

could see Washington wizards making the move with there 3rd pick to get a Cousins

I would use that pick to select Oladipo, and with there pick maybe take a Bennett if available,

I believe the kings should start all over, remove all the head cases from the organisation, trade all the current guys on the roster and mold the team in a different directions,

Tony Allen doesn't work unless you have high tier shooters. He's a huge liability, and Gay wouldn't like him anyway.

Cousins will get the max this time and he is better than DD and a pick. We would have to empty the cupboard to get Cousins, and all that's currently in the cupboard is some old corn starch, and expired can of pea soup, condiments and one box of Kraft Dinner (JV).

Ummm, is Kraft Dinner good or bad in your example? I think JV is pretty damn good.... but agree on the old corn starch and pea soup.

But if we had an opportunity to pair JV and Cousins, we'd be fools not to explore that. It likely isn't happening, but damn, it would finally end the lazy jump shooting era that has corrupted this team for far too long. Anyone but JV, make it happen.

13.8 M is correct based on the projected 58.5 M cap. 13.775 to be exact. Of course, projections might change.

Who doesn't love Kraft Dinner?

I think we would have to include JV TBH.

Just checking! Thought it may have been a distraction noodle.

Including JV kills the deal for me. I'd do anything and everything else.... but the draw of JV and DC, that's the entire point.
