Cousins getting traded to the Pelicans is nuts.

I can't even process it. Like, I dunno if the Pelicans are secretly brilliant or setting the time bomb on the franchise. A two-towers build for a team in this day and age is outdated as hell, though on paper AD and Boogie should be able to co-exist given their ability to play stretch 4/5. To say nothing of Boogie's personality being a factor...

That wasn't secretly brilliant, that was a steal. NO only had to give up one first round pick, and Buddy is not good. The Kings are a disaster.

From NO's perspective, if Boogie doesn't work out they can probably trade him for more than they gave up this upcoming offseason.

Man if this works you got 2 of the most skilled big men on the same team. AD can play PF so I'm not worried about floor space. I'm more worried about Boogies mood swings. Will he be calm in NOLA? Will he be drama free playing this close to home? If the answer is yes then the pellies got a steal. If it's business as usual for Boogie then this will be a smart move for a Kings team that has not made too many smart moves as of late.

I don't think there's any universe where this was a smart move for the Kings. A protected lotto pick??? You can't tell me there wasn't a better haul out there for Cousins.

I mean, they say the Pistons floated out a Drummond-for-Boogie trade.

And that package minus Hield couldn't land them Jahlil Okafor.

Still hurts my head. I may feel like the Pelicans have a big risk-reward gamble pairing Boogie with AD, but zero question the Kings lost in this trade in every possible way.

Definitely an interesting trade. Looking forward to seeing how these two pair together. Stupid on the Kings part and smart on the Pelicans. Who knows if it'll work out for them, but if not, they can get equal value back.

As frustrating as Drummond is, I'm glad the Pistons didn't trade him for Cousins. Cousins is by far the superior player but trading for him is like trading for cancer.

Last year's awesome red and blue all-star jerseys were followed-up by some dreadful rags this year. Truly ugly jerseys and the ads on all the jerseys throughout the weekend really irked me. Never gonna let this go. I hate it so much :x

the Kings are just out to prove that they're one of the worst franchises in all of sports. now there is zero reason to go to a Kings game...Boogie is going to poison the minds of all the youth on that team. hope it blows up in both's faces so the Sixers land Jrue and get rid of Jah somehow. my friends are trying to say they're content with keeping Jah if it means we have a better chance of the pick swap happening with the Kings and their 2019 pick being more attractive. :roll:

Gonna laugh if Boogie ends up not resigning with the Pelicans.

Pick up Lou Williams, drop Corey Brewer, seems like a positive. Time will tell.

It's a positive. We now have the top 2 highest scoring 6th men in the league, and I'm better then Brewer.
