Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins Regrets Staying With Kings For So Long

Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins Regrets Staying With Kings For So Long”

"I wanted to give it a chance because my representatives told me I shouldn't stay", Cousins said. You know, being ... guess you can say stubborn and loyal, I wanted to make things work.

Cousins often involved himself in outreach programs in Sacramento and in fact bid the city a genuine, heartfelt goodbye when he learned that the Kings traded him to New Orleans back in February.

"I had the chance, but I fought it".

He incidacted he could have left Sacramento when George Karl arrived as coach in February 2015 but he "fought" to stay with the team that selected him with the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

Yet the intervening months have given Cousins time to reflect on his high-profile move, and his main conclusion is he should have left Sacramento two years earlier.

"I never felt I got into a good place with Cuz, and some of that was my stupidity when I said that no player is untradeable", Karl told the Sacramento Bee's Ailene Voisin. Almost every season it seemed the team was on the verge of trading him, but it didn't happen until last season's All-Star break, when the Kings shipped him to the New Orleans Pelicans. "At the end of the day, it's a business", Cousins added. I kind of blame myself for even putting myself at that point. Like, you knew coming in it's just a business.

"I'm excited to play in front of the fans and see their reaction", Cousins told Spears. How are you going to be loyal to something that hasn't been loyal to any player that's ever played this game? "But as far as it just being like a revenge game or anything, I'm past it". We have a chance to win.

Ahead of his clash with Sacramento, the 27-year-old spoke with ESPN's Marc J. Spears and opened up about his time with the franchise and revealed one big regret he has.
