I read that the Kings didn't want equal value, just young players and picks. Well, good luck with that, I suppose.

Meanwhile, that's a scary frontcourt for the Pelicans.

If the Pelicans can pick up the 8th seed...Draymond can lockdown the Brow or Boogie. He can't cover them both.

Alright, we have a report.

The Sacramento Kings, after promising DeMarcus Cousins privately and publicly that he wouldn’t be moved prior to Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, agreed to trade the center to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night, league sources told The Vertical.

The Pelicans are sending guards Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway, and 2017 first- and second-round picks to the Kings as part of the deal, league sources said, with forward Omri Casspi going to New Orleans.

The Kings were at significant risk of losing a 2017 top-10 protected pick to Chicago, and the trade now increases the chances they can hold on to it.


That's a steal for the Pelicans, though the Kings being able to hold onto that pick would be a saving grace. Of course, that means the Bulls lose again, and this time they weren't even involved in the deal. Thank you, GarPax!

Anyway, Cousins' attitude has been a concern for some time now, and things haven't really improved on that front. To that end, I can see why the Kings would be open to pulling the plug and just ridding themselves of him before they have to sign him to a big contract. However, as Woj noted on Twitter, the fact that they publicly and privately promised not to trade Cousins could very well hurt their standing with agents and players in the future. What goes around comes around, as they say.

I have been eager to see how Cousins' fate would pan out. So it seems here it is...

This trade seems to have thinned out NO backcourt, but Davis+Cousins, is this the return of tall ball? In SacTown, they seemed now to be geared to play small ball, especially if they keep Tyreke at 3 and switch gay to 4 for longer stretches.
YEAH BOY!

Dang. I think that's a pretty raw example of the humanity behind the millions of dollars, endorsements, and the business side of basketball. He may be a knucklehead at times, but he handled that like a pro. Kudos.

You're surprised that Divac would flip-flop?

I feel sorry for Sacramento fans, who have to endure such incompetent people running their team.

Cousins and Davis should be fun though (Y)

I'd say the Pelicans got a steal in just up Galloway which there gonna waive, Evans is pretty much done after so many injuries and Buddy is only a rookie but on the flip side they don't have to deal with Cousins and they don't have to pay him.

Who the hell greenlit this? Are the Kings' front office really saying they received no better offers for Boogie? Seriously? I smell bullshit.

Kings definetely wanted him out, despite Divac publicly saying there was no way a trade involving DMC would pull off. At the end of the day, they had to accept the best offer, which I am pretty sure was this one. That is a consequence of DMC's agent telling the Celtics the chances of him resigning with the team after the trade were around 0-5%. No NBA team will risk their core or their future to acquire a player he has openly told his agent he won't resign with any team who trades for him.

The 76ers were apparently offering them a similar deal to the one they accepted from the Pelicans, involving Jahlil Okafor. It sounds like the Kings just wanted to be rid of Boogie by any means necessary.

It would have been interesting to see Boogie in Boston with Isaiah.

Its their choice to waste time and money watching an inept franchise. No sympathy from me.

Sacramento fans are close enough to the Bay Area they should just get on the Warriors bandwagon.

I think we all know the Kings management is the dark cloud over the franchise. Grant Napier can't say that, though, since he's employed by them.

I nominate this for Woj Bomb of All Time

The last blockbuster of mid-season I remember since this was Carmelo Anthony's trade, which was expected since the acquisition of Amar'e by the Knicks. Carmelo wanted to be home again. But this trade was so unlikely that Celtics were expected to acquire Cousins.

Pelicans? Wow. The best bigmen duo since Wallace & Wallace

Good. Now let's spread the floor with some good perimeter shooting. Pelicans still need some pieces to really mean business.

That's pretty cold hearted post. No fan wants their team to be an embarrassment like this... paying or not

The Kings are basically the Cleveland Browns of the NBA. As a Browns fan I can sympathize.
