The Boston Celtics have been recently linked to Kings’ Center Demarcus Cousin, some suggesting that a deal is in the works that may help solidify Beantown’s sorry frontcourt.

It appears the Celtics have paved the way for the deal to come together when they waived forwards Jarvis Varnado and Kris Joseph late Sunday. Although the Kings have rescinded the idea to a Cousins trade there’s no telling what could be going on behind the scenes, especially with attractive talent the big man could add to any team.

Cousins, a third year player out of Kentucky, has been deemed unavailable but Danny Ainge and the Celts are a pesky bunch.

The 22-year old has been portrayed to have maturity issues, facing many off the court issues with the Kings in his short career in Sacramento.

Cousins was most recently suspended following a confrontation with head coach Keith Smart in December. He served a two-game suspension following the sideline spat and hasn’t looked back since, averaging a monstrous double-double during their uplifting road trip.

The deal isn’t complete yet because of an apparent holdup between Boston and Sacramento over Celtics guard Avery Bradley, according to Gethin Coolbaugh of 1510 Sports Radio Boston.

While Ainge must feel that Bradley is an essential piece to the puzzle of the Celtics right now, it might be smart to part ways with the guard for such a domineering force like Cousins. Although this just may be a rumor we’ll see how it plays out over the course of the next few days.

The East, better yet the Atlantic division, could experience a shake up if such a trade were to clear. The Celtics are honestly a frontcourt player away from suring up their frontcourt to match KG’s productivity both on offense and defense.
