Q (Ailene Voisin): Let’s start with the obvious question. Why trade (DeMarcus) Cousins?
A (King’s GM Vlade Divac): It was a lot of things, but basically, I thought it was time to start over. There was a lot of bad stuff happening here the last five years, a lot of bad habits. There were always issues, many you don’t even know about. Now I believe strongly this was the right thing to do for our future. Now I have a clear vision. This city deserves better, and I want to create that. With DeMarcus’ situation, I basically was stuck.
