Source familiar w/ Kings’ thinking: “Vivek thinks Buddy [Hield] has Steph Curry potential.” Am told that fixation was a key driver in deal.

Vivek Ranadive is a visionary. At first, your immediate reaction to the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans DeMarcus Cousins trade is to think that the Kings were robbed. Cousins is objectively the best center in the NBA and the Kings only got back worthless draft picks, injury prone Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway (#KNICKSTAPE) and Buddy Hield.
On paper, that’s a garbage trade. But nope, Vivek Ranadive knows exactly what’s going on. Buddy Hield, the golden god, is going to be the next Steph Curry. Are you guys familiar with Steph Curry? The unanimous NBA MVP? Yea, meet Buddy Hield, the NEXT unanimous NBA MVP.
I’m all in on Buddy. Get ready for him to drop 30 a night. Good luck NBA defenses that are forced to stop Hield. You cannot stop Buddy Hield, you can only hope to contain him.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Vivek Ranadive is a god damn visionary. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
