I think Cousins will be made available at some point and we should jump in the sweepstakes. I like your trade offer and think that would be a solid score for them considering what they are giving up. They get a young talented SG, a bench PF that has range and could do spot starting duties, a serious expiring, multiple mid-first round picks and a way of moving up in the first this year.
I think we can make two trades and make us a decent team but one has to be done after the 15th of Jan. Trade Ben Gordan to Minny cause Roy is done for D Williams. The injury insurance will pay the rest of Roy's contract to they will be able to absorb the rest of the money for Ben's contract http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bgjdrdx. The we send Mullens and Diop to Brooklyn for Hump and Brooks.
Hendo, Brooks, Willliams (Reggie)
Hump, TT, Williams (Derrick)
Sign a D League C and go with it
Sam Amico is tweeting that we made an offer that would be very hard for the Kings to turn down for Demarcus Cousins.

I wonder what it would take to land JJ Hickson? 24 years old, great in the paint PF on the boards and scoring. Wish we would've landed him off waivers, but now we would have to trade for him from Portland. With his increased productivity, I wonder what PDX would ask for. Better question is would we be satisfied with him as our "ideal" PF of the future, or do we have our expectations higher for a true dominating stud? I don't see there being a true young dominating PF available via trade/FA.
I liked Hickson.Too bad he's playing this good, otherwise we would be able to acquire him. Now I'm not so sure we could land him due to his performances and other suiters. The only thing we can do now is go after Thabeet.
T Thomas and B Gordon
R Jefferson and A Biedrins
We would get slightly more rebounding, save 1 year of TT's contract, and a veteran mentor for MKG....
GSW would get points from Gordon and taking a chance on TT....
No picks involved....
