League sources indicated his February trade to acquire DeMarcus Cousins, pairing him alongside All-Star forward Anthony Davis, played a significant role in Demps retaining his position. Sources said the importance was not only due to adding an elite center to a small-market team for the reasonable package of Buddy Hield, a protected draft pick and a pair of expiring contracts, but also because the Pelicans’ sought to provide a dose of stability around Cousins as he enters the final year of his contract.
He isn’t DeMarcus Cousins, the player he was traded for (among other pieces going both ways). He isn’t Stephen Curry, the player that the owner of his new team compared him to. He isn’t a franchise player. At least not yet. Not as a rookie. None of this is news to Hield. “People said [I was like] Steph Curry in college,” he told Bleacher Report on Monday. “Yeah, I guess, but I gotta develop. Steph Curry, he’s a different animal. He’s in his own world. He does whatever he wants. I can’t do the things Steph Curry does right now.
