PBT Extra: Pelicans, Mavericks winners at trade deadline passes; Kings not so much

But there were moves in the run-up to the deadline, then on deadline day itself.

Who were the winners? New Orleans for sure, but Dallas and others made my list.

Who lost? There are 30 million reasons DeMarcus Cousins made that list, but so did a few teams.

I get into all of it in this PBT Extra.
