Magic have no interest in trading for DeMarcus Cousins, according to report

DeMarcus Cousins - USA TODAY Sports

A new report has debunked a rumor which held that the Magic are one team interested in trading for DeMarcus Cousins.

The Orlando Magic were rumored to be one of the teams most likely to make a trade for Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, according to a report from Kentucky Sports Radio, but Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reported Monday that the report is false, and that Orlando is "not interested" in such a trade.

Cousins, 22, fell to the Kings with the fifth pick in the 2010 NBA Draft due in large part to concerns about his maturity. Sacramento suspended him indefinitely for a confrontation he had with coach Keith Smart, whom the Kings hired in part for his ability to reach the Mobile, Alabama native. The suspension lasted only one game, but Smart held him out for another contest anyway, indicating that he may not have supported the decision to lift the suspension so soon.

Tom Ziller of Sactown Royalty believes that a package of second-year center Nikola Vučević and rookie forward Maurice Harkless could be good enough to entice the Kings to deal Cousins to Orlando; Robbins' report indicates, however, that the Magic aren't even the slightest bit interested in Cousins. The 270-pounder owns career averages of 15.9 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.3 steals on 43.5 percent shooting.
