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.

Trade Grades: Pelicans fleece Kings

Cousins’s manager, and Cousins, both had reactions as well.

The Pelicans seemed excited:

Cousins, 26, has one year remaining on his deal. He's averaging 27.8 points, 10.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists this season.
