Nik Stauskas spent just one season in Sacramento, Calif., but it was a pretty entertaining one. There was the creation of his own hot sauce, "Sauce Castillo," the "popcorning" of his apartment, the bet he made with Draymond Green, and a lot more. 

The former Michigan star is off to Philadelphia, as part of a trade the Kings made to open up some cap space. 

DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings' best player, shared (and later deleted) the text conversation he had with Stauskas after the trade was made public. It's a pretty cool insight into the life of an NBA player. 

We're not sure why Cousins opted to delete the Instagram post, but it's nice to see the Kings' big man wish his former teammate well in Philadelphia.
