Former Oklahoma basketball player Isaiah Cousins has been selected by the Sacramento Kings with the 59th pick in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft. Cousins is the second Oklahoma player to get drafted, as Buddy Hield went to the Pelicans with the sixth pick.
Sacramento will draft Oklahoma's Isaiah Cousins with the No. 59 pick in the NBA draft, sources tell The Vertical.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 24, 2016
Cousins will have to work hard to show what he's capable of doing at the next level, and he'll join a team that is looking for players to step up. He'll join another Cousins in Sacramento, as the Kings are led in scoring and rebounding by DeMarcus Cousins.
Never ever would have predicted 3 years ago that Isaiah Cousins would end up being an NBA Draft pick. Work ethic is as strong as Buddy's.— Mike Houck (@mhouckOU) June 24, 2016
