NEW ORLEANS (AP) DeMarcus Cousins is on his way out of Sacramento - and right into an All-Star frontcourt pairing with Anthony Davis.

The New Orleans Pelicans agreed to acquire Cousins from the Kings on Sunday, the same night the center was playing in the All-Star Game in their arena.

The Kings dealt one of the most talented but temperamental big men in the game along with Omri Casspi to New Orleans in exchange for Tyreke Evans, 2016 first-round draft pick Buddy Hield, Langston Galloway and first- and second-round draft picks this summer, a person familiar with the situation said.

Defense lacking in record-setting ASG

Their cry: "De-fense! De-fense!"

All-Star Anthony gets break from drama

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Carmelo Anthony was looking forward to being somewhere other than New Orleans this weekend.

The New York Knicks' prolific scorer was certainly not suffering from All-Star envy when he was initially left off of this season's Eastern Conference roster. In fact, Anthony conceded after an All-Star practice on Saturday that he was "a little jealous" of friends and family he'd planned to join on a short vacation to Cuba and Puerto Rico during nearly a week off from the regular season.
