Read plus Cousins would be a great deal for the Kings.
If Read were signed for 3 years (this year is set and two additional) for at or near the $2.5m per mark then a straight up swap would be a great deal for us.
Read would plug right into our team and be a great addition but having for only 1 year doesn't work. Of course we would have first shot at signing him but that doesn't matter so much when teh cost is JB.
The cap will be going up after this coming season but how much is the question? With that uncertainty and the fact that we have a few other contracts, some of them big so that has to be a consideration too.
One year of Read (potentially) isn't worth the price of JB. Would love to have him on the Kings though.
