Why The Blazers Didn’t Get Cousins

Portland could have used the all-world center but the match didn’t happen.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s Blazer’s Edge podcast Dave Deckard and Dan Marang break down the trade between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Sacramento Kings that sent DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi to New Orleans for Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield, a 1st and a 2nd round pick. While seeing that in print may still boggle your mind, Dave and Dan dissect it from both a Trail Blazers perspective and a larger league wide viewpoint.

When both of them are done face-palming themselves to death and pitying the Kings fanbase, they revisit the other BIG trade so far this trade season, the acquisition of Jusuf Nurkic and his debut game for the Trail Blazers. They also discuss trade rumors around the league, particularly the possible movement of point guards Ricky Rubio, Derrick Rose, and Reggie Jackson. That and more on this week’s Blazer’s Edge podcast!
