DeMarcus Cousins told reporters in Sacramento he was "shocked" to learn of the news that he'd been traded, but that the Pelicans have "made the situation a lot more comfortable" by sending coach Alvin Gentry and GM Dell Demps on the plane to bring him to New Orleans. "It's been hard," Cousins said, according to ABC 10 in Sacramento. "For it to just happen overnight, and then to just come home [from the All-Star Game] -- I've got to rush to get things done. My mindset was I was coming home to relax for a couple days. It's been a hectic two days, but that's the nature of the beast."
