In his interview which was published in the local newspaper “Sacramento Bee” the general manager of the Kings explained once more why he decided to trade DeMarcus Cousins and start a new project which includes at least three Europeans.
Divan counts on Koufos, Papagiannis and also Fenerbahce‘s sharp shooter Bogdan Bogdanovic: “I want to build a culture, and he didn’t fit in my culture. Before we were just talking, preaching. But if we’re going to do it, you do it. The good thing about our situation now is that we have some very nice assets, a few more shooting guards, and time to take a look at Willie (Cauley-Stein), Skal (Labissiere) and Malachi (Richardson) when he gets healthy, and Georgios Papagiannis. Ty Lawson has been very good for us, and Darren (Collison) is playing well, and he will be a free agent. Kosta (Koufas) has been good. We have (Bogdan) Bogdanovic coming over next season as another asset”.
Bogdanovic’s contract with Fenerbahce includes a one million US dollars buy out this summer and expires in the summer of 2018.
