It was an eventful Sunday with DeMarcus Cousins and ended with him being traded.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojanarowski, the Kings were fully engaged in trade talks centered on Cousins throughout the day.

Some thought the Celtics could have been one of those teams, considering the assets they have, but that was not the case. The Celtics were not one of the teams speaking with the Kings on Sunday about a potential Cousins deal, according to the Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett.

Wojanarowski reports the Lakers were turned down by the Kings and late Sunday night the Kings agreed to trade Cousins to the Pelicans in a deal that includes Buddy Hield and a 2017 first-round pick.

Even though it doesn’t look like the Celtics were in on Cousins, they still likely will try and make a trade before Thursday’s trade deadline.
