The New Orleans Pelicans have acquired center DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi from the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway and their 2017 first- and second-round picks. (Incidentally, the Philadelphia 76ers have the right to exchange first-round draft picks with the Kings this year, so the Kings might be even more screwed than we already expected them to be).

In New Orleans, Cousins will team with Anthony Davis to form one of the best 5/4 combos in the league.

That pick is crazy

if the Kings pick 1-10: pick goes to Chicago,
if the Kings pick 11-30: Philly has the right to switch

the Kings are 11th right now, but will likely move up to top 10. The Kings may have ended up top 10 anyway, it's the Kings, but this deal means they'll likely have the Philly first rounder at worst, instead of nothing at all. The deal isn't good, but it is a slightly added benefit for them to secure another 1st round pick in the mess.

Meanwhile, the Bulls have been waiting for this pick to go to them for four years, only for the Kings to be so consistently awful that the pick has stayed in the protected area every single year. If the Kings end up in the top 10, the Bulls just get a 2nd rounder instead.

It's gotta be real tough to be a Kings fan these days - I mean, even more than normal

Who do you think it was, Boston?

This is an interesting trade. Time to see if the days of the bigs is back. NO is the 11th seed right now. If they end up in the 8th they'd most likely get the GSW. That's a match up I wanna see. The spread out vs the twin towers.

Hey, remember when all we could do is dream about this combo (grantland.com)? And we got him for spare parts? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY RUPEES, NBA.

Too bad the Maloofs are too proud to bring him back. If he doesn't go to Detroit, I could see him joining the Lakers, thinking "hey, they got Mitch Richmond a ring." Then again, he's still good friends with Avery Johnson...
