All-Star Center DeMarcus Cousins traded to the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Sacramento Kings have traded All-Star Center DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Rookie SG Buddy Hield and Former ROY Tyreke Evans a 2017 first rounder and 2017 second rounder . Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical first broke the news of a trade through his twitter account.

The former first rounder out of Kentucky was thrown into a slew of trade rumors for the past few months, and after playing all of two minutes in Sunday night’s All-Star game it was apparent that the Front Office of the Kings were prepared to move on. For New Orleans they pair All-Star PF Anthony Davis with Cousins.The Pelicans will look to contend with the Goliaths of the West now that they contain two of the best bigs in all of basketball and a former All-Star PG in Jrue Holiday. For the Kings trading Cousins looks like the end of a long standing headache, but it shows that the Kings will remain in rebuild mode. Hield and Evans will automatically be factors in an already weak Sacramento team. While the 2017 First round pick will more than likely be outside of the lottery, the depth of the draft class is intriguing enough that the Kings will look to pair a top pick with a potential rotation player or starter. Overall the trade benefits both sides due to New Orleans wanting to make the playoffs and Sacramento gaining more pieces for their rebuild.
