Dallas Mavericks: 3 Ways to Trade for DeMarcus Cousins
3.) A Multiple Team Trade
In this situation, Sacramento would value getting the most draft picks and/or younger assets in the deal…something Dallas doesn’t have a plethora of. This would mean Dallas would have to pull in one or two other teams to make it all work.
For the sake of the numerous options, the following is an example of the above logic.
Dallas Receives: DeMarcus Cousins, Darren Collison
Sacramento Receives: Atlanta 2017 First Round Pick, Dallas 2017 First Round Pick, Justin Anderson, Deron Williams, Mike Scott
Atlanta Receives: Dwight Powell, Devin Harris, Dallas Second Round Pick
Philly Receives: Tiago Splitter
Sacramento would get TWO first round draft picks, a young stud in Justin Anderson, Deron Williams and Mike Scott. Dallas gets their centerpiece in Cousins. Atlanta gets two solid rotation players to bolster their bench and Philly gets the Splitter contract to help them hit the cap floor.
