DeMarcus Cousins Traded To New Orleans Pelicans

The Kings could trade De Marcus Cousins this week The Kings could trade De Marcus Cousins this week

The Kings will reportedly receive a package headlined by Buddy Hield and a 2017 first round draft pick.

Cousins is a 3-time all-star player who's having his best National Basketball Association season. With the remainder of this season and next season left on Cousins' deal, New Orleans certainly has time to convince the embattled big man to stay and there is no better argument than results.

Cousins is averging 27.8 points and 19.7 rebounds per game this season.

Prior to the All-Star break, Jones suffered a thumb injury that kept him out of the final four games before the break. The Kings will be hoping he improves in Year 2, but come on, it's the Kings. The full-court press of Ranadive began before the season, league sources told The Vertical, and it was unrelenting. According to reliable league analyst Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings have been aggressively engaging themselves in trade talks, mostly centered on Cousins in recent days. Some believe that it is time to move out of his partnership with Bradley Beal and take cue from the DeMarcus Cousins trade. That is likely because Cousins becomes a rental for New Orleans, as he is not eligible for the new Designated Player Extension.

Stories in recent weeks said Cousins, whose contract expires after next season, meant to sign a long-term extension in Sacramento.

On February 7th, Kings' general manager Vlade Divac said, definitively and with conviction, "We're not trading DeMarcus..." This is going to be a process but the Kings will have a young exciting nucleus to work with for the next couple years. Sacramento actually has the right idea if long-term prosperity is more important than locking Cousins into a $200+ million contract extension this summer and repeating the past few years over the next eight.

Forward Omri Casspi will be joining Cousins to the Pelicans. No amount of liking Buddy Hield makes that a good call.

Kings have not been seeking equal value in Cousins deal, source tells @TheVertical. With the Kings quick to trade their disgruntled star I am curious to see whether teams will be more trigger happy or more gun shy with the deadline rapidly approaching. What better way to accelerate the future than allowing two franchise big men to exponentiate their multidimensional talent? Will Davis and Cousins mitigate their defensive shortcomings by grabbing every single offensive rebound, drawing fouls and controlling the paint?
