Former Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins served as honorary grand marshal for the Zulu parade at Mardi Gras in New Orleans today, showing how he’s adjusting just fine to his new city.

Cousins’ new New Orleans Pelicans teammate Anthony Davis served as honorary grand marshal with him.

Video of Cousins posted by reporter Emma Discher shows the All-Star on a parade float sporting a pair of yellow panties on his head, in party spirit of Fat Tuesday.

The Pelicans are 0-3 since acquiring their new center in a trade on All-Star Sunday. The team is 14 games below .500. The Kings are 1-2 since the infamous trade.
