The DeMarcus Cousins trade to the New Orleans Pelicans just gets weirder and weirder. Speaking to reporters on Monday, Sacramento Kings GM Vlade Divac said that he had a more appetizing deal on the table for the All-Star center. Why didn’t they take it? Divac would not say: Perhaps even more confusing is that Divac said that owner Vivek Ranadive did not have input on the trade process. That seems highly unlikely, given how hands-on Ranadive has been in the past regarding keeping Cousins, killing Cousins trade talks for years. “[Ranadive] didn’t have any idea,” Divac said of the trade. “I just told him what I was going to do.” Let’s cut right to the chase here: this makes no sense.
