DeMarcus Cousins Thanks City of Sacramento, Kings Hint At Centers' Character Issues

The Boston Celtics were among the myriad of National Basketball Association teams who were unable to - or refused to - beat the Pelicans incredibly mediocre offer of Buddy Hield and a couple middling picks for DeMarcus Cousins.

To be able to land Cousins for a 2017 first-round draft pick, Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield and Langston Galloway was simply too good of a deal to pass up. "Even though I'm gone it'll still be the same".

"You can't win if you don't have a culture". Then throw in guard Jrue Holiday, which makes the Pelicans one of just eight teams in the league with three players who have played in at least one all-star game. And now he finds himself back on the same team as fellow Kentucky alum Anthony Davis, 23.

In the end, the deal the Knigs ultimately made may have been their best option if they were convinced Cousins had to be dealt. The most incredible fans on the planet and I just want you to know that your support has meant everything to me.

During Sunday's All-Star Game, there were rumblings that the trade was imminent. He only played two minutes for the Western Conference under coach Steve Kerr. But family being close makes it that much easier. "If that's what happens".

Cousins' statistics as a player improved each of his 6 1/2 seasons (he was averaging career highs of 27.8 points and 4.9 assists per game), and it appeared that the team was prepared to sign him to a new contract this offseason that would have paid him more than $200 million. But he is due to become a free agent in 2018 unless the Pelicans can sign him to an All-Star-caliber extension.

DeMarcus Cousins will be officially introduced as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday, but he's already making changes. He never got a real opportunity to play for the Kings this season, partly because of injury, partly because he wasn't Matt Barnes, and all of that is ultimately ok, if not super frustrating. Both Cousins and Davis generate FanDuel points in similar ways, and with both on the court on the same time, they'll be competing for the same rebounds and will be forced to share touches in the frontcourt.

Cousins was introduced in New Orleans at a press conference on Wednesday morning. "But that's an example of DeMarcus Cousins ruined Nik Stauskas, and now they're trading him for maybe an equivalent player".

That's because the Sixers can swap picks with the Kings this year as long as the Kings' pick is in the top 10 and, of course, the Sixers have a worse pick; otherwise, the Sixers get a the Kings' second-round pick.

It doesn't matter if the Kings make the playoffs and get swept in the first round, they said. Galloway has been a solid reserve, providing scoring punch from the perimeter.

In six full seasons with the Kings, Cousins hadn't been part of a team to have a winning record after 82 games, as the Kings failed to build a team around him, while the Pelicans had been working over the past three years to build a team around Davis.
