The Los Angeles Lakers have been actively pursuing trade scenarios with the Sacramento Kings on DeMarcus Cousins.

Vlade Divac, told the Sacramento Bee in Sunday's editions that dealing away his best player "is not happening."

The Lakers, Kings and Orlando Magic have had exploratory dialogue on a three-way Cousins trade.

The Lakers lack many assets beyond the second overall pick and Julius Randle.

The Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets also have interest in Cousins.
