The Red94 Podcast: On the Boogie Cousins trade

As I said in the episode, we probably will never know how much Daryl Morey was willing to give up for Boogie Cousins.  All we know is from reports that the other offers on the table were embarrassingly low.  Did Morey even make an offer?  If he didn’t, was it out of a fear from the lessons learned from the Dwight Howard experience?  Would he have been willing to include Clint Capela and Sam Dekker in a potential deal?  It might not have mattered as reports have surfaced regarding Kings ownership’s infatuation over Buddy Hield.  I still maintain that objectively speaking, what the Rockets could have given was a better offer than what the Kings got for Cousins.  But the normal rules of objectivity and rationalism do not apply.
