Cousins traded to New Orleans to team up with Davis

Some late breaking news out of the NBA tonight as Sacramento has agreed to trade DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans.

The deal includes Buddy Hield and a 2017 first-round draft pick, according to the reliable Adrian Wojnarowski.

Boogie and Davis together in one frontcourt. Big Blue Nation, you have a new favorite NBA team.

UPDATE: The Kings got ripped off.

In one of the all-time worst trades, the Kings will get Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, one future first-round pick and one future second for Cousins.

That’s laughable.

    You knew the Kings were shopping Boogie when he only played a few minutes. Was Coach Cal subliminally tweeting to BBN that he knew something about the trade based upon his tweets during the game? Boogie, The Brow and Terrence Jones all on the same team. If the BBN could combine the Suns backcourt with Pelicans frontcourt, it would be a BBN Dream Team.
    Good weekend for NBA Cats!

      They’re already trying to trade Jones, though. Still awesome to get Boogie and AD together.

    Whether the Kings got ripped off depends on if Cousins signs a contract extension with the Pels (his agent and Cousins have both said that won’t happen), if not the Pelicans just paid to rent Boogie for 3 months.

      Cuz is under contract thru next year so its a full season and a half to get him to stay. He is very close to home so i say the chances are good.

      Yeah, I mean in the fact they would mostly likely have to trade him in hopes of getting anything more than out of him.

      “But Cousins’ agent, Jarinn Akana, told ESPN on Sunday night that Cousins would likely decline to sign a contract extension this summer with any team that trades for him before Thursday’s trade deadline.”

    Cousins is actually not a free agent until next year. If New Orleans can sign a nice guard and a shooter they will be pretty good. I know it’s crazy but Steph Curry would be perfect. Cuz and AD would draw 3 defenders and Steph and Redick would look nice wide open.

    We need to get the Kentucky Reign in the NBA and get them to sign Boogie as their franchise player and build from there.

    #1 Center AND #1 PF on the same team. They’re gonna need to reinforce the rims when the Pelicans come to town. This is the best front court combo the NBA has seen since McHale/Parrish…and I’d take Boogie ‘N Brow over them ANY DAY. 0_0

    This has to be the best front court since Duncan and the Admiral, good god. The rumors are swirling that Terrance is going to get traded, so let’s hope they can get another decent guard out of him. I wonder what it would take to get Rondo from the Bulls…

    One team’s trash is another team’s treasure. The Kings will never make it doing what they do. Their owners are the type to be happy simply with a participation trophy.

    Buddy Hield is still in the deal. It’s a decent return but the Kings will still probably blow it.

    Wow. This gives the Pels two of the three best big men in the game (KAT being the other in contention) and arguably one of the two or three best frontcourts in league HISTORY from day one. Now if they can fix that backcourt, they will be a force.

    Now let’s hope the Pelicans trade for John Wall…
