Has the New Era of Proud officially arrived? via Cowbell Kingdom

The Sacramento Kings organization as a whole have been reluctant to move DeMarcus Cousins, until now. According to multiple sources, the Kings have traded Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Kings were in discussions over the past several days with the Pelicans management at All-Star weekend and also had discussions with the Los Angels Lakers but ultimately, they pulled the trigger on the Pelicans deal.

Oh yea, the most dramatic week during the NBA season has officially begun. The NBA Trade Deadline is right around the corner and this trade stole the show Sunday night.

We had a chance to speak to Cousins after the game along with other reporters:

As you could tell, Cousins handled the questions very well and I applaud him for it. He kept it professional, and ended his Kings tenure the right way.

One thing that was clearly noted when the trade went down was that the unhappy Kings fans were much louder than the happy Kings fans. It’s usually always that way.

The Kings are receiving Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, a protected (1-3) 2017 first round pick and 2017 second round pick.

The unhappy fans don’t believe the Kings received fair trade value. That’s a fair assumption but not completely accurate. The Kings were not winning with Cousins and the way the roster was constructed from years of bad decision-making, I truly believe they weren’t ever going to be more than an eight seed, let alone win a championship.

Why did I even mention a championship when this team hasn’t made the playoffs in over a decade? Well, the goal for every NBA team should not be making the playoffs but winning a championship and the future wasn’t bright for the Kings.
