Just over two weeks away from the NBA trade deadline, speculation surrounding Boogie’s future in Sacramento (or lack thereof) has spread across the country. Some of those rumors are enticing for UK fans, like bringing Boogie to Phoenix, but Kings’ General Manager Vlade Divac said Cousins will stay in Sacramento.
“We’re not trading DeMarcus,” Divac told ESPN. “We hope he’s here for a long time.”
Instead, Cousins will get a paycheck worth approximately $219 million to stay in Sacramento for five more years. Even though he’s never been to the playoffs in six seasons, Cousins still wants to be a King. For more than $40 million a year, I can’t say I blame him.
