Pelicans must be convinced they can attract Calipari & Wall...otherwise this is a bad move. Cousins looks for a foul more than he looks for teammates when he is swarmed by help defenders. AD doesn't have range past 15 feet. The spacing will be horrible and New Orleans will probably miss the playoffs this year and next, unless Wall signs. But since New Orleans plays in the West, I doubt he does.
The Kings have a better chance of keeping their draft pick, and will have a pick in the 11-14 range from New Orleans.
Had the Lakers done this trade and given up either Russell or Ingram, chances are Cousins leaves them in 2018. He wouldn't mesh with Luke's offense either.
