DeMarcus Cousins delivered a brief, emotional speech Monday night at what appeared to be a going-away party following his trade from the Sacramento Kings to the New Orleans Pelicans.

“My love for this city has never changed,” he said, his voice wavering. He turned from the crowd and appeared to be choked up. “My love for this city has never changed. Even though I’m gone, it’ll still be the same. You know, I’m still lookin’ out for these kids. Every family in this city matters to me; every soul in this city matters to me.

“Everything’s the same. I’m just not in a Kings uniform anymore, which is OK, because, you know, the love is still here. It’s still gonna go on.”
