The Washington Wizards have interest in DeMarcus Cousins in a sign-and-trade.

Cousins has long been linked to his former Kentucky teammate John Wall.

Sources, however, say the odds are long that a deal will actually be worked.

Alex Len is a more realistic target for the Wizards at center.

Cousins could be down to the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans for his free agency market.
