Did the Sacramento Kings just make the worst trade in NBA history?

The Sacramento Kings trade will go down as one of the worst in history because of its pure stupidity. Demarcus Cousins is a three-time All-Star who's averaging 27.8 points and 10.6 rebounds. In return for Cousins, Sacramento is getting nothing of substance. 

The problem with trading Cousins right now is that over the past two seasons, the Kings have made deals to bolster the roster to win with Cousins. Those deals have deferred costs. It’s now time to pay them off.Among those deferred costs: a pick swap option with the 76ers for this season and an unprotected 2019 pick due to those same 76ers. In other words, if the Kings are worse than the Sixers this season, Philly takes the better pick. No matter what happens — no matter how bad the Kings are — the Sixers get the Kings’ 2019 pick.

Despite Cousins' skill, he just was not working out the way the Kings thought he would. The Kings sank a ton of resources into building a team around Cousins without any results. Instead of pursuing a losing strategy, the Kings are cutting their losses and starting fresh. 

"It was time for a change and I decided this was the best direction for the organization, Divac said in a press release. "Winning begins with culture and character matters. With the upcoming draft class set to be one of the strongest in a decade, this trade will allow us to build the depth needed for a talented and developing roster moving forward. We thank DeMarcus for his contributions and wish him all the best in New Orleans.
