In his first press conference since dealing DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday, Sacramento Kings general manager Vlade Divac hardly managed to calm the waters in response to the trade that took an entire league by surprise. Cousins, the tempestuous three-time All-Star and franchise-level talent, was traded to the Pelicans during Sunday’s All-Star Game for a package that included struggling rookie shooting guard Buddy Hield, along with one-time King Tyreke Evans, a protected first-round pick in the 2017 NBA draft, a second round pick this June, and cap fodder.

Marc Berman of the New York Post reported on Sunday that the odds are “heavily against” the Knicks trading Anthony by Thursday. Anthony has maintained that the team has not approached him about waiving his no-trade clause, and Berman’s sources say Carmelo would likely only consider accepting a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers or Lakers.
