The Chicago Bulls are slowly building their own version of a super team in the Eastern Conference. Given that their division holds the 2015-16 NBA champions in LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Jimmy Butler squad attempts to dethrone them with the help of Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. If the past two NBA seasons will repeat themselves in the next months, then the Chicago Bulls hope to be the ones to face the Golden State Warriors, which have Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in the helm, in the Finals. To help them with this mission, the Dwyane Wade squad is said to enlist the help of DeMarcus Cousins.

The Chicago Bulls are slowly building their own version of a super team in the Eastern Conference. Given that their division holds the 2015-16 NBA champions in LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Jimmy Butler squad attempts to dethrone them with the help of Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. If the past two NBA seasons will repeat themselves in the next months, then the Chicago Bulls hope to be the ones to face the Golden State Warriors, which have Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in the helm, in the Finals. To help them with this mission, the Dwyane Wade squad is said to enlist the help of DeMarcus Cousins.

The confusing situation in the Sacramento Kings roster appears to be pushing out most of its players. Aside from the Rudy Gay trade rumors swirling around the NBA today, the departure of another young star seems to be imminent. DeMarcus Cousins trade rumors are also rife and sources claim that the center might be out of the Sacramento Kings roster soon. Unlike his teammates, the big man is reportedly recruited by none other than the Chicago Bulls.

At the moment, the Chicago Bulls are busy filling their roster with veteran stars who can guide Jimmy Butler into becoming an NBA icon like Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. However, young talent is still necessary to beef up their lineup. Hence, the possibility of a DeMarcus Cousins trade is a good move for the Chicago Bulls.

Will this happen in the NBA offseason? Will the basketball community see yet another surprising move after the Kevin Durant free agency ending in the Golden State Warriors and Dwyane Wade leaving the Miami Heat?

The answer appears to be in the negative. The Sacramento Kings looks like a team gearing up to rebuild its roster around DeMarcus Cousins. Taking into consideration the recent comments of Vlade Divac regarding the center, the NBA team's general manager simply reiterated the importance of the star in the group.

"He's primed to show the world what both he and plenty of others around the basketball world already believe - that he is the best big man in the world," said Divac of DeMarcus Cousins. The Sacramento Kings general manager added, "It's a no-brainer. He's the most dominant player in the whole world. And being from Serbia, I have to root for Serbia, but I feel bad for them. He's going to kill them."

Although a DeMarcus Cousins trade may not be promising right now for the Chicago Bulls, fans of the Jimmy Butler team still hope to land the Sacramento Kings star. However, the question of the center's ability to adjust in a new roster not centered around him remains. Can DeMarcus Cousins still shine even if he is surrounded by All-Star players like Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo?
