Buddy Hield is reportedly headed to Sacramento as part of Sunday's trade involving DeMarcus Cousins.

Feb 19 - 11:58 PM

Tyreke Evans will be traded to the Kings in the DeMarcus Cousins deal.

The former Rookie of the Year is headed back to his old team. Evans is going to be an unrestricted free agent in July, so the Kings are clearly opening up as much they can for the upcoming offseason. As for the rest of this season, Evans may not have as much of a restriction and the Kings are now completely gutted on offense, so he's headed for a big opportunity. Of course, the injury risk won't go away.

Langston Galloway will reportedly be traded to the Kings as part of a deal sending DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans.

He is fully expected to be waived, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. Galloway had some bright spots earlier this season while Jrue Holiday was out, so he should get some interest on either waivers or as a free agent.

The Kings have agreed to trade DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Kings are expected to get Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, a future first-round pick and a future second-round pick. This is a stunning move that gives New Orleans an overwhelming frontcourt with Cousins joining All-Star MVP Anthony Davis -- the Pelicans are currently 2.5 games out of the playoff picture, so they could make a late run. Cousins' fantasy value isn't likely to improve in New Orleans, since his usage rate could take a hit, but he's still an elite fantasy option. Teams on the bubble of the playoff picture out West have been put on notice, and we can't wait to see how Cousins and AD play as a frontcourt duo.

DeMarcus Cousins reportedly asked to play limited minutes during Sunday's All-Star game because he was "dinged up."

DMC is healthy and his limitations during Sunday's meaningless game aren't a concern. His owners should be monitoring the swirling trade rumors, however, as the Kings are reportedly "strongly considering" an offer from the Pelicans which would send Cousins to New Orleans in exchange for Buddy Hield and two first-round picks. Plenty of teams will likely get involved in a bidding war, assuming the Kings are open to moving Cousins before the deadline, so this storyline is far from over.
Feb 19 - 11:26 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo made 14-of-17 shots to finish Sunday's All-Star game with 30 points, six rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block.

In his first All-Star game, the Bucks' star led his team in scoring despite playing just 23 minutes and sitting out down the stretch. He hammered down a put-back dunk over Stephen Curry that will make highlight reels, and generally feasted in a game with zero defense. The Bucks are one game behind Detroit for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, and Giannis' production is more important than ever with Jabari Parker (ACL surgery) out for the season.
Feb 19 - 11:22 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 41 points during Sunday's All-Star game, making 16-of-26 shots with seven 3-pointers, seven assists, five rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes of action.

Westbrook has no 'off' switch. He threw down an alley-oop from Kevin Durant in the first quarter, which caused the Western Conference bench to serenade both players during a timeout, and the former teammates were the early focal point of tonight's game. His huge line came in just 20 minutes off the bench tonight, and he would have been the MVP for a third straight year if Anthony Davis hadn't blown up for a record-breaking 52 points.
Feb 19 - 11:19 PM

LeBron James scored 23 points during the East's All-Star game loss on Sunday, making 10-of-17 shots with three rebounds in just 19 minutes of action.

In the process, LeBron became the first player to score at least 300 points in All-Star games during their career. LBJ also passed Kobe Bryant for the most made field goals in All-Star history, and the 32-year-old is sure to pad his totals before his career ends. The East and West combined to score 374 points tonight, a new record, as nobody on the court even attempted to play defense.
