    Like I said at this point I can probably agree. But all I know is if WCS lives up to the hype someday then I really really love Bigs. It's what I want in Denver.

        Does GK have any GM influence? I'm a little skeptical giving up two of our best remaining pieces. But they are pieces that need to be dealt to completely transition our identity. But I think I like your scenario better than that one.

            I think he has input, but not final say. The issue will become if Cousins refuses to play for Karl. We know how Boogie can get when he doesn't trust someone.

            • That said Denver would have it's first star since Melo. It creates a lot of holes, and would leave only Gallo as the largest contract sans cousins. We could attract another big name player with the space.

                Yeah, A Cousins deal would really set the franchise on the right track. We know he likes Malone, so that could factor into Cousins being here long term. He is the most talented center in the NBA.

                Karl has a say, but this could be something that could take months to develop. Especially if there is a rift in Sacramento between Boogie and GK. All I know is that the Kings are a mess.

                  Cousins is too much like Melo but with far less playoff credits. He's a trap because like Melo he's got talent but is missing something that actually works well within a team.

                  Nurk had a great game against Cousins, made him snap. Head case in my book and either speaks volumes about what Nurk can be or shows what Cousins can't be.

                  I'd send Lawson and Chandler for their pick and pieces then draft Hezonja and Mudiay.

                    Cousins could potentially man the 4 for us. Nurkic and Cousins would be a scary thought. The key for a "smaller" market team is name recognition. Cousins puts us on the map. He also has a good relationship with Malone which is a major plus. Keeping star players from a larger market is huge. Look at Portland and Aldrige. It's part of the reason I think Hezonja might be the pick, due to his strong relationship with Nurk.

                    • The closer to the draft we get the more scared I get we take Mudiay.

                        Yeah, I guess they can't bang each other too much if they are on the same team, ha. Practices may get chippy.

                        We also have Jokic coming in and he appears to be NBA ready.

                        I like the swagger Hezonja brings, but I think he'll be gone if we don't get that pick.

                        I'm excited for the draft, I think there is a high quality player to be had at our pick.

                          Giving a guy like Dragic a max contract is how you run a franchise into the ground. But after 1 year he will be, and Winslow is 6'4" thats what he measured at at the combine. It is an issue.

                              Again he will be 30 after a year, still not the wrong side of 30. Plus, just because you hit 30 doesn't mean you drop off a cliff. CP3 is 30, so I guess he can't be any good. Winslow measured 6'6.5 with shoes (what they play in) guys like Paul Pierce and Kawhi Leonard are both 6'7. So a 19 year old kid, who is still likely growing is a non issue.
