NBA players react to the DeMarcus Cousins trade
When news broke that the Kings had reportedly agreed to trade DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans in exchange for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway and 2017 first- and second-round picks, the basketball world lost its collective mind.
This included fellow players in the league, which will now have to deal with an insanely-talented frontcourt each time they face New Orleans. Here is how the league reacted to the swap.
