This rumor seems to have some merit according to Yahoo‘s Adrian Wojnarowski, who also mentioned it on Twitter.
Kings have had recent discussions with New Orleans on Cousins, sources tell @TheVertical. Sac still debating Cousins’ future internally.

Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reported the Kings would receive rookie guard Buddy Hield and several first-round draft picks.
Sources: Pelicans and Kings have discussed a DeMarcus Cousins trade for Buddy Hield and multiple Pelicans first-round draft picks.

Cousins and Hield were ironically involved in an exchange last week in which Hield inexplicably struck Cousins in the balls and was ejected from the game.

Pairing Cousins and Anthony Davis, both former Kentucky Wildcats, would give New Orleans the closest thing the NBA has seen to the “Twin Towers” of Tim Duncan and David Robertson on the San Antonio Spurs.
Naturally, this rumor has set Twitter abuzz.
PLEASE UNITE ANTHONY DAVIS & DEMARCUS COUSINS. I just want to see what it looks like. Please.

Who would Sacramento possibly want from New Orleans in exchange for Cousins? They aren’t getting Davis.

Davis and Cousins, oh my god that would be insane.
