I saw enough losing streaks with Melo, Stat and TC on the floor to know that Boogie does not mean the Pels get an automatic playoff berth.

They now have a depleted back court and six bigs in AD, Cuz, Ajinca, Asik, Jones and DMo. Pels have 25 games to get their act together to rebalance the roster and develop chemistry, my money is on them losing more games now that Cuz is there.

SacTown got fleeced. Not sure Cousins' "attitude" was enough to sell him $.50 on the $1.

Are you saying a Brandon Knight trade is next? (Knight was AD's former PG in Kentucky)

I guess but it depends what draft picks the Kings got. Pelicans might be in the lottery this year (right now at 23-34) so if they get this years pick it might not be too bad.

I think sacto finally realized that they could only get better through the draft. they shot themselves in the foot with the nik stauskas deal to unload landry and thompson to the sixers, giving up a bunch of future picks to clear salary to sign fa's, which failed. boogie was the only asset that would bring back a 1st and 2nd rounder this summer.

A front-office source familiar with the Kings' thinking said owner Vivek Ranadive's adoration of Hield was a key driver in the deal. "Vivek thinks Buddy has Steph Curry potential," the source told ESPN's Baxter Holmes.

Look at all those media outlets asking to use the footage.

Vivek/Vlade and the Kings organization are morons. Cousins seemed to actually like Sacramento and they go on and trade him for a bag of chips.

This season has been interesting, as it seems as if different teams have been competing with each other to see who's the worst run franchise in the league. First the Bulls, then us, now the Kings.

the sad thing is that the kings haven't hit rock bottom yet... all of those draft picks they surrendered to philly will happen the next few years and one of them has no protection on it.
