A Brief DeMarcus Cousins-to-Toronto trade update

Part three of an ongoing series.

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings came into Toronto and beat the Raptors last night, proving that a 30-win team can beat a 55-win team on any given night if you shoot 15 percent from the field (actually I think it was 29 percent but who is fact checking?). But we're not here to talk about the game, that's what the game recaps are for.

Last night, thanks to an injury to Jonas Valanciunas, Dwane Casey started rookies Jakob Poeltl and Pascal Siakam, who have both flashed a lot of potential as rotation players early in the year. Norman Powell has been getting some run lately and was part of the crunch time lineup last night. Why does all of this matter? Because this potential trade for DeMarcus Cousins works on ESPN's trade machine!

Someone get me Vlade on the phone.
