Sacramento Kings GM talks Eric Moreland, DeMarcus Cousins

It’s been a busy offseason for Sacramento Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro and it’s likely to get busier as the team doesn’t appear satisfied (nor should they) with their current roster.

Long lusting for a lengthy, shot-blocking type, D’Alessandro and the Kings recently made the decision to sign undrafted rookie Eric Moreland who fits the desired mold. The second-year GM spoke to’s Katie Cracchilo about the decision to sign the Oregon State product.

In addition, D’Alessandro, who was spending time in Las Vegas, spoke about DeMarcus Cousins who is currently working out with Team USA.

Cousins, thanks to both Blake Griffin and Kevin Love pulling out of their requirements, seems like a logical fit for USA Basketball given their lack of size on the inside.

The video, which can be seen here, is not currently embeddable though it’s certainly an interesting watch.

In addition to D’Alessandro speaking about the Kings’ newest addition, DeMarcus Cousins took some time off from Team USA practice to do the same thing. Needless to say, Cousins, who spent time working with Eric Moreland when he attended the Kings’ summer league, seems rather excited about his new teammate.

It’s been a while since Sacramento has possessed an able shot blocker and that has to be music to the ears of Cousins.
