DeMarcus Cousins is once again at the forefront of trade rumors as his time in Sacramento is counting down. Would the Dallas Mavericks be a viable landing spot?

As long as DeMarcus Cousins is in a Sacramento Kings jersey, his name will remain in trade rumors.

It seems the words “Cousins” and “trade” have been married together for a couple of years now but his time in Sacramento could truly be coming to an end this season as the Kings have to get value for their big man before he walks in free agency next summer.

Could the Dallas Mavericks make a move?

For the sake of hypotheticals, I’m not going into whether I believe Dallas would be better off making one of these trades or if Dallas would even do them. This piece is solely on what I think would be close to even for both sides depending on what Sacramento is looking to get back for Cousins.

I also recognize other teams in the league could offer sexier packages to the Kings, but have instead dedicated this piece to just the Mavericks being the trade partner with Sacramento.

So let’s have some fun and look at three different ways the Dallas Mavericks could possibly trade for DeMarcus Cousins.
