Geoff Petrie says the Kings intend to keep working with DeMarcus Cousins
With DeMarcus Cousins suspended indefinitely for unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team, there has already been speculation about whether the Kings should trade the talented but problematic third-year center.
Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie said the Kings still plan to work with Cousins, not deal him.
"It’s not something that just showed up yesterday, last year or two years ago or five years ago," Cousins said. "But he’s our player so we want to work with him to get past this so he can be what everyone sees is possible."
Cousins has alienated teammates with his verbal tirades to the point players give him the ball rather than feel his wrath.
The latest incident happened Friday night when he exchanged words with coach Keith Smart and his response to Smart became so personal of an attack that Smart left him in the locker room at halftime.
