Knicks fans can now throw away all rumors of Boogie as the man himself, DeMarcus Cousins, has been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans.

DeMarcus Cousins has been freed of the Kings.

The Sacramento Kings agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night to trade Cousins according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Kings will receive the Pelicans’s sixth round pick from last year’s draft, Buddy Hield, former King Tyreke Evans, as well as a first and second-round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.


ESPN’s Marc Stein added that Langston Galloway will also be heading to the Kings as part of the deal.

The new Pelican currently averages 27.8 PPG, 10.7 RPG and 4.7 APG. Cousins will be paired up with fellow Kentucky alum Anthony Davis, in what is most certainly the league’s most dangerous front court.

The trade deadline is here, ladies and gentlemen. And it is here with a bang.
