Ranking the Best Potential Trade Destinations for DeMarcus Cousins

Some things never change—I'm looking at you DeMarcus Cousins.

As has become the standard, the Sacramento Kings' season has been marked by disappointment, competitive futility and, of course, Cousins-invoked turmoil.

Fresh off his latest suspension, the perpetually troubled big man has never been a more potent source of conflict.

The result? His name is once again being tossed around the NBA's rumor mill.

To no one's surprise, there has been no shortage of interest in the center's services. Self-destructive tendencies and all, his two-way prowess is valued league-wide. That said, a deal of this magnitude will be extremely complicated.

Not only must teams be willing to manage Cousins' volatile demeanor, but they must also possess the assets necessary to convince the Kings to deal a borderline star who is still on a rookie deal. Ergo, it's going to be tough to find a suitor who can match Cousins' value both statistically and financially.

Does that make this impossible?

Not at all. Let's face it, when it comes to Cousins, anything is possible.
