Kings & Pelicans Agree On DeMarcus Cousins Trade & Fans Go Wild - See Tweets

Not even DeMarcus Cousins, 26, himself saw this one coming!

The next great National Basketball Association front-court duo could now be upon us after the recent trade between the Sacramento Kings and the New Orleans Pelicans. On the off chance that the experiment fails, then New Orleans won't have lost a huge amount in terms of assets.

Cauley-Stein figures to get a heavy share of the 34 minutes per game the Kings must replace with Cousins is gone.

Many fans who had grown to love his talents as a player also grew exhausted of his moody demeanor during games, constant complaints toward referees and failing to get back on defense while sulking.

I'll give you a moment to collect yourselves. I'm looking forward to it. "Ripped off, misled, just more chaos", said longtime Kings season ticket holder Frank Bellows of Folsom. In fact, when the athlete found out about the trade, he said that he loves New Orleans!

"It's been emotional the past two days". I'm in a good place. With the addition of Cousins, there's plenty of reason to believe that they could wind up in that No. 8 spot and potentially wind up taking on the juggernaut Golden State Warriors in the first round.

Orlando needs a capable point guard and Detroit would like to solidify its roster with a couple of key pieces before the postseason rolls around so with the persistent rumors on both ends it makes sense that the Pistons and Magic complete a deal before the deadline. He has a lot of time to improve and he already is a very talented player. I can kind of leave satisfied with that.

Does Cousins wonder if there is anything he could have changed to help the Kings? "I learn from my mistakes".

I was surprised to see that tweet by Derrick Williams yesterday.

Trump's Attacks on News Media Provoke Backlash
Since the election, Trump has been steadily building on the anti-media rhetoric that was central to his campaign messaging. And they stopped giving Trump and his surrogates valuable forums to answer their questions with empty propaganda.

No matter what happens for the rest of the season, Cousins would have most likely extended his contract with Kings. This really hurt the Kings and the city of Sacramento. I gave it my all for you and you gave it right back.

The Kings a year ago traded Carl Landry, Jason Thompson and Nik Stauskas to Philadelphia in a salary dump to create the cash for free agency.

"He's a great player, dominant in this league, of course, with all the numbers he put up", Davis said Sunday immediately after reports of the trade surfaced.

Not only are the back-to-backs especially grueling, in the Sixers' case it means that star rookie center Joel Embiid, whose playing time is restricted, will sit out one of the back-to-back games.

That's to be expected when you have what most would consider two of the top 10 players in the league.

"I think everybody's available to play", Nuggets coach Michael Malone told the Denver Post.

This, for Cousins and the Pelicans, is a new life. That makes the adjustment a little bit easier.

"It's been an emotional roller-coaster", Cousins said.

"Basically what I came to is this is a business". A lot of family will be here. Nearly 40 percent of his attempts are from 16 feet out or more, where shots almost never get blocked. They play those losers at home in nine of those 14 matchups and have 13 home games total. I realize this is how journalism works in today's world, but "fake news" is not just a figment of Donald Trump's imagination.
