NBA News, Trade Rumors: DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe And John Wall Reunion, But Where?
DeMarcus Cousins has been making the hottest topic on the NBA trade radar. Why not? From showing frustrations on the court and during interviews to Sacramento Kings reportedly shopping on trade partners, it's pretty much clear, the 6'11" two-time All-Star is playing his last season with the Kings. But lately, Boogie spoke about reuniting with college buddies John Wall and Eric Bledsoe in Sacramento.
Wildcats Rookies Playing in Sacramento?
"Do we ever talk about playing with one another?" Cousins told the media in a recent interview when asked whether he wants to play with the two point guards from Washington and Phoenix as posted by BelieveTheHype.com. And jokingly, Cousins said, "It's come up... They're going to all come to Sac. Come to Sac."
The trio played together back in college with Kentucky Wildcats. Although the three were rookies, they were able to lead the team to the Elite Eight only to falter against West Virginia Mountaineers.
Cousins went on to say that his two former teammates always try to recruit one another and play for their respective teams. "He [Wall] wants me here, Eric wants us in Phoenix," Cousins revealed.
The Sacramento power forward seems open to the idea that one day, he may be able to play alongside his former teammates, be it in the NBA or after retirement, "Play with John and Eric again... you never know what will happen. It's the NBA, so hopefully one day he'll be in a Sacramento uniform," Cousins said.

Curiously, there's a possibility the trio would be able to play under one NBA team. The lucky team where the three former Wildcats could fall into place is in Phoenix, as per RealGM Trade Checker. Considering the position and salary of Cousins and Bledsoe, the Kings could ask for Tyson Chandler while the Wizards can have Brandon Knight.
