Rookie shooting guard Buddy Hield was the main piece the Sacramento Kings got back in the stunning trade which sent star big man DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans last week. The former Oklahoma Sooners star went on to score 16 points off the bench in his debut, which the Kings won 116-100 over the Denver Nuggets on Thursday.

But after the game, Hield found himself in a very uncomfortable situation- his underwear was missing!

With the Sacramento media following Hield closely after his first game with the Kings, it didn’t take long for the news of his missing underwear to reach the Twittersphere:

And it turns out stealing underwear has actually been a thing before with the Kings players:

It took some minor sleuthing from Hield and co. but they finally were able to crack the case. Sacramento seven-footer Kosta Koufos has been pinpointed as the perpetrator. But it took a little while for Hield to nail Koufos’ name:

Any other person may not take such an odd move in stride. But Hield was nice about it and played it off when talking to the press:

“I’m going to start calling him ‘Goofus.’ He stole my boxers and stuff. He’s cool, though. I’m just going to buy him an extra pair.”
