McRoberts will make $5.8 million this season and has a $6 million player option for 2017-18.
As excited as Rose, 27, is about a fresh start, being traded is never easy. “I couldn’t believe it. I was kind of hurt at first, of course, coming from my hometown and moving, period,” Rose said. “Being away from my kids and away my family, that’s going to get to you, no matter who you are.

Incoming calls from other teams have been dismissed. There seems to be zero desire to even talk about a Cousins trade from the Kings’ side. Unless things are just brutally bad out of the gate, the Kings likely play out the first season under Coach Joerger and make decisions from there once they know more. There is no doubt that Cousins’ looming free agency in 2018 will become a factor; it’s just not one right now.
