Remember that report that the Heat, Celtics and Bulls are interested in trading for DeMarcus Cousins?

Miami already denied any intent to trade Hassan Whiteside – who’d be the logical centerpiece of any Cousins swap – for the Kings center.

It doesn’t appear Boston is hot on the trail, either.

Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald:

Sam Amick of USA Today:

Bulpett is well-connected in Boston, Amick in Sacramento. I tend to trust them on this.

The Kings have given little indication they’d deal Cousins anywhere. If it comes to it – and it might not – Sacramento would reportedly fire George Karl before trading Cousins. The Kings seem more committed to Cousins than any other aspect of their organization.

If that changes, the Celtics – loaded with draft picks and a few intriguing players – would be a logical trade partner. But at this point, everything sounds hypothetical.
