DeMarcus Cousins is reportedly open to the possibility of playing alongside Carmelo Anthony. Cousins commented on the possibility but experts said that it would be difficult for the new orleans Pelicans to get Anthony because they do not have the right pieces to interest the Knicks, and Anthony still has a no-trade clause should he decide to use it.

The trade rumors regarding Anthony have died down in the past weeks but one fan on Instagram posted a photo on the account called pelicansfanpage_. In the post, the fan wrote alongside a photo of Anthony and Cousins that there should be a reunion between the two NBA players.

Cousins liked the photo and left an emoji in the comments section making others comment that the Pelicans center should make the trade happen so that Anthony could play with him, reported. The two have played together in the past for the Olympics representing the American team.

Cousins admires Anthony

Hoops Hype reported that Cousins admired Anthony so it was not surprising that he liked the Instagram post. In a 2016 interview, Cousins said he enjoys being around the veteran player and he was his favorite teammate during the Olympics since the latter has so much experience in the league. Cousins also said that he has been a fan of Anthony his whole life so to be able to work with him during the Olympics for Team USA made him a better player.

If Anthony joins Cousins, New Orleans would have the best front court

In a report by Uproxx, it was also rumored that if Anthony will be part of the Pelicans roster, the front court of the NBA team would be one of the best. Cousins, Anthony, and Anthony Davis will make New Orleans Pelicans a strong contender for this NBA season.

Even before the Pelicans fan page posted the photo of Anthony and Cousins, the former Sacramento Kings player already told fans that his current team will shock a lot of people because he promised that they will give top-notch play this season.

Experts believe Pelicans will have a difficult time acquiring NY Knicks player

Although a lot of people think that Anthony playing alongside Cousins and Davis would be great, experts said that it might be difficult to have the New York Knicks player be part of the team.

This is because the salary of the New York Knicks player might be difficult to match when it comes to the players that the Pelicans could trade in the possible deal.

Also, Anthony said that he would only waive his no-trade clause if he will be acquired by the Houston Rockets. The other possible destinations of Anthony are Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunders, and Portland Trail Blazers.
