I love Boogie's game.

And, as you mentioned, I'm happy for him and (Anthony Davis).

Man that's a pretty weak get for a talent like boogie. I feel like we could've offered more than that. Regardless, looks like the pelicans will be needing guards. Gotta see if they're interested in Lee or Holiday asap

I'm surprised Pelicans managed to keep Holiday, myself.
The only thing they gave up, really, was the 1st rounder, in my humble opinion.

the kings also got tyreke and galloway in the deal, so they probably won't be shopping for backcourt players. if anything, they will probably shed some players for roster space to make the deal happen.

i think that was as good as it gets with boogie, an elite talent but always a risky proposition with team chemistry. this is an interesting development, did not see the kings as sellers.

i'd try to pry jrue from the pels, he might leave nop anyway and leave them with nothing.

yeah, tyreke must be horrified, living out groundhog day... :)

Same here. Two weeks ago, Kings or Vlade Divac claimed Boogie wouldn't be traded. And Pelicans nearly struck a deal for Sixers' Jahlil Okafor.

How do you go from Okafor to acquiring the best center in the league?

Cuz agent said he probably won't sign with any team that trades for him so NO has to convince him, they do have his bird rights and can offer him 50M more with the additional year. Max contract for Cuz will be 219M/5yr when he becomes a FA.

Good gamble by NO getting a talent like Cuz for what they gave up but Cuz is a loose cannon despite the talent and its hardly a given NO moved up a notch in the WC with him.

$219 million guaranteed dollars over 5 years?

Wow.

The NBA is generating stoopid money.

Looks like the Kings made a financial decision, mostly, so I doubt very seriously if No-Trade Clause would've agreed to be traded to Sacramento, if Phil Jackson had stopped tweeting and talking to Charley Rosen long enough to dial Divac's number.

Would've been nice, though.

Porzingis and DeMarcus Cousins would've been just what the doctor ordered in New York.

For the sake of conversation, what do you imagine we would've given up? Something like a package of Hernangomez, Kuz, Jennings, Holiday and our 1st rounder?

The Kings announcer Grant Napear came out in favor of the Kings trading Boogie in no uncertain terms. I didn't realize the guy hated Boogie that much but you have to take his opinion seriously.

24,22,28,28,29,33 and 24 this season. That's the # of wins with Cousins! It was time to move into another direction! Period!

And here's maybe the most important thing. Most of Cousin's teammates the past 7 years hated playing with him! That is a fact!

That is insane. Watch Phil panic and trade Melo for a 2021 1st rd. pick, Austin Rivers and trash.

Correction on Boogies max contract with the Pels it's 180M/5yrs. Boogie was eligible to sign something called a vet designated player extension this off season of 209M. The Kings were the only ones that could offer him this deal because a condition to be eligible is that the team must have drafted you or you were traded in your rookie year.

Kings are taking a lot of heat for this trade but they didn't get better offers for him. He sure wasn't helping them win judging by the record and 209M is a lot of money to pay out for the privilege of losing.

Another guy you've been right about....the question is can he temper his bad attitude enough to become a winner? he found the perfect counterpart in Zen-cool Davis. Will be fascinating to watch, is it stii a guards game? these guys can say no.

What do they have that we want though. Just gave up thier picks and if they want guards they'd be giving up more bigs. We are over stocked at big. If anything WE need guards.

But anyway, how crazy is thier front court now? The downside of this is now Jrue Holiday ain't going nowhere this summer. He was my primary pg FA
