Kings had their hands tied. It was either trade him for pieces now or watch him walk for nothing in the off-season.

 

Kings did not have their hands tied, Cousins was open to singing an extension with them and I believe he made that statement public.  What the Kings did was pull the trigger prematurely.  Divac even admitted that a few days ago he had received better offers and had he waited until a day or two prior to the deadline, I'm sure the offers would have only gotten better.

 

Vivek believed Buddy Hield is the next Stephen Curry, that was essentially their explanation to why the deal was made.  I'm not a professional scout, but I'd bet my life savings that Hield won't even make a single All-Star appearance in his entire career.  They had a Buddy Hield like player not to long ago named Jimmer Freddette.

I'm not trying to pour salt in the wounds because most reports do confirm that the guy is a giver and does a lot of stuff for that Sacramento community without putting a lot of attention on himself... but I wonder if some of those tears are for the 30 mill going down the drain lol

Pelicans send coach & GM to get Cousins and Casspi on owner's plane - Buddy Hield & new Kings arrive in Sac on commercial flight.

I forgot how much this guy wanted to play for Lakers lol. He literally begged to be a Laker in the pre-draft workouts.

^ Davis has a weak body language. He must have ceded the alpha role to Cousins already.

Meanwhile the Kings are playing team basketball and leading the Nuggets by double digits at the half...

 

Trading Cousins as a means to tank and retain their pick maybe backfire haha.

NO with 3 straight losses. The twin towers not looking good so far.
