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. 

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. 

Isaiah Cousins averaged 12.6 points per game on 40.8 percent shooting during his senior year at Oklahoma after making the switch from shooting guard to point guard.
