Earlier, we noted some discussion that DeMarcus Cousins might slip to the Pistons. Now, there’s reason to believe that there is mutual interest between team and player, and that the Pistons may be making a play up the draft board in pursuit.
Jonathan Givony of Draft Express reports that DeMarcus Cousins prefers to play for the Detroit Pistons rather than the Sacramento Kings.
A source close to DeMarcus Cousins indicates his preference is to land in Detroit. Feeling is mutual. Not a fan of Sacramento apparently.
Givony also reports that Detroit may be looking to trade up to the No. 4 pick to draft Cousins.
NBA source says both Detroit & Houston are making a major push to trade w/Minnesota to get Cousins with the 4th pick. “His stock is rising.”
At least one other competitor for Cousins’ services, Golden State, is apparently out of the running.
