According to the reports, the Kings are dealing Cousins for rookie guard Buddy Hield, swingman Tyreke Evans, guard Langston Galloway, a 2017 first-round pick and a 2017 second-round pick obtained from the Philadelphia 76ers.

"Unfortunately that was a thing we had to do", he said, "but again we want to have a different culture in the future and try to win the games".

The Pelicans made the first big splash before the National Basketball Association trade deadline Monday by sending a host of players to the Kings for DeMarcus Cousins. "I was really think hard about where we are going, where we are now, what we want to achieve and I made the decision to go other way".

Cousins was selected to the American Family Insurance ALL-USA first team in 2009 at Leflore High in Mobile (Ala.).

It is speculated that the Pelicans are probably going to offer a new deal to Cousins, because after next year he will become a free agent. Cousins is a volume shooter (more than 20 attempts per game), which means he inherently risks getting blocked more often than your average player does.

Cousins had spoken openly for weeks about his desire to spend his entire career in Sacramento, despite the club's decadelong playoff drought.

"DeMarcus Cousins is someone we consider untouchable", said the Kings' in-game GM.

What's the deal with RU and Stringer's contract extension? So, of all players coming out of college, they were the best three. We don't have a magic formula, we don't go into a lab and conjure up and mix up things and come up with Young Frankenstein.

He's now moving on to New Orleans, but he obviously leaves Sacramento with close ties and fond memories.

Despite his status as a three-time All-Star and gold medal Olympiad, Cousins still found the waters treacherous with regards to officiating.

"The Kings excised Cousins, and there are strong indications they are not done dealing, either", wrote Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports.

Those are likely words that the Get-Boogie-At-Any-Cost faction will ignore, but that group needs to consider a few facts and read the tea leaves a little. Reports this season said he meant to sign a five-year, $209 million contract extension with the Kings.

Casspi has been playing about 19 minutes a game for the Kings this season, averaging 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds.

It will be interesting to see how these two players work together on the floor and if they create some good chemistry.
