Omri Casspi offers positives and could carve out a nice role with the New Orleans Pelicans

Omri Casspi offers positives and could carve out a nice role with the New Orleans Pelicans

Casspi’s three-point shooting and transition game are of the potent variety — much more so than Dante Cunningham or Solomon Hill. I don’t know if you guys heard the news or not but the Pelicans and the Kings made a trade over the weekend. Sacramento sent three time All-Star to New Orleans in exchange for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway and two picks in the upcoming draft. Lost amid all the hoopla that DeMarcus Cousins was on his way to New Orleans, Omri Casspi also joined him on the plane ride over. As you know, the small forward position has ranged from blackhole at...

Who is Langston Galloway?

Where there’s a will, there’s a Galloway An oft-ignored player in the blockbuster trade that sent Omri Casspi and DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans is Langston Galloway. With Buddy Hield and the first round pick being the centerpiece, and Tyreke Evans a hometown favorite returning, it’s easy to overlook the young guard that the Kings acquired. NBA Journey Sacramento’s newest combo guard has had quite the unique journey to the NBA.

Pelicans TV ratings up big and likely to continue to climb

Despite a struggling start ratings are up and now the DeMarcus Cousins trade should draw even more eyeballs Monday was a really big day for the New Orleans Pelicans. Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield, Langston Galloway, and a couple draft picks (2017 1st and Philly's 2017 2nd) were officially traded to the Sacramento Kings for DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi. Naturally we focused the entirety of our assets on covering this enormous story. However, even more good news came out on Monday but flew well under the radar.

Should the Orlando Magic have traded for DeMarcus Cousins?

Should the Orlando Magic have traded for DeMarcus Cousins?

The Kings traded the superstar center to the Pelicans for pennies on the dollar. The Sacramento Kings surprised the NBA world Sunday night when they agreed to trade DeMarcus Cousins—a 26-year-old perennial All-Star averaging 27.8 points and 10.7 rebounds on 56.2 percent True Shooting—to the New Orleans Pelicans for, uh, not much. Even acknowledging that it’s nearly impossible to get equal value for a player of Cousins’ caliber, the Kings could have done better than Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, and two future NBA Draft picks. Kings GM Vlade Divac even admitted as...

Lakers Trade Rumors: DeMarcus Cousins’ agent told teams he might bolt to Lakers

Lakers Trade Rumors: DeMarcus Cousins’ agent told teams he might bolt to Lakers

Well this is certainly interesting. When DeMarcus Cousins was traded, the speculation surrounding the deal typically started with ‘wait, the Sacramento Kings only got what?’, and for good reason. Buddy Hield is an okay young-ish player. Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway are nothing to write home about. Yes, they’re getting a top-three protected first-rounder, but any pick coming from the team DeMarcus Cousins with Anthony Davis is not going to turn a franchise around, especially given the Kings’ poor drafting habits. Still, the question begged asking: Why was the return so low...

How I Met Your Center: Boogie, The Brow and the Bumbling Sacramento Kings This was originally supposed to be a “please don’t trade for Jahlil Okafor” piece. I had tried writing it one night, got hit with writer’s block and stowed it away for another day. Oh how the turn tables have... umm... turned? By now you know the story: New Orleans is getting three-time All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins in exchange for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, a 2017 top-three protected (loooooooollllll) first-round pick, a 2017 second-round pick (via Philly), a $25 gift card to Best Buy...

Divac says he ‘fully’ understands fan frustration over mixed messaging on trading Cousins

Vlade Divac discusses trading DeMarcus Cousins. Vlade Divac met with the Sacramento media Monday, the day after news broke that he was trading DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans. Divac said the deal, which includes Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway and New Orleans’ 2017 first and second round picks, was the best offer the Kings had (other than the offer the Kings had two days prior), that it was the right time to make the move and that the Kings want to change the culture. The Kings general manager said the team will play hard, continue to try to make the playoffs...

Trading DeMarcus Cousins was not the worst move in NBA history

Pelicans received: DeMarcus Cousins, Omri Casspi Kings received: Buddy Hield, Langston Galloway, Tyreke Evans, Top 3 protected 2017 first-round pick, second-round pick There’s only one team in the NBA capable of producing such a visceral and immediate reaction to a trade as the Kings, and the second reports came through that DeMarcus Cousins was being shipped to New Orleans (or since Cousins was there for All-Star weekend, maybe Sacramento can just send his stuff via mail now?) every NBA fan was able to recognize the simple truth: The Pelicans won the trade by such a wide margin it should...

NBA-Cousins in blockbuster trade from Kings to Pelicans

Morning Conversation: Dealing with dejection

Morning Conversation: Dealing with dejection

Help. The Sacramento Kings shocked the basketball world last night when they traded DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans for what will ultimately boil down to a (top three protected!) late lottery pick at best, and Buddy Hield, a 23 year old rookie having a season not too dissimilar to Ben McLemore, the Kings’ 4th year shooting guard who showed some slight signs of development over the last month. McLemore is also 23. The Kings will take back the contracts of Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway to make the trade work under the current CBA, but one or both of them could be waived...
