09:03 AM ET 09.28 | The Sacramento Kings smartly decided to clear house once the team was freed from the evil grips of do-nothing Maloof Brothers, bringing in a new general manager to help clean up the mess the Maloofs and former GM Geoff Petrie created, while hiring a new coaching staff to help work with a roster that lost former Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans over the offseason. Evans was allowed to join the New Orleans Pelicans as a free agent, without much of a fight from the new front office. Seemingly far more destructive and frustrating than Evans, big man DeMarcus Cousins was thought by many observers and analysts to be the next certain Kings lottery pick to skulk out of town, as Boogie was set to become a restricted free agent (as Evans was) in the 2014 offseason. Instead, the new regime recently made a huge commitment to DeMarcus, signing him to a four-year, $62 million extension that the Sacramento Bee and Yahoo Sports reported yesterday.

Dumb move! They should have traded him for a more mature star and some picks. You don't want this head case to be the face of the franchise!

They just should have moved the team to Seattle. Sacramento is just a wasteland much like Oakland.....
