DeMarcus Cousins kicked out of Sacramento practice

Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

Remember how at Summer League a lot of people were watching DeMarcus Cousins play and saying, “how did he drop all the way to No.5?” (I’m sheepishly raising my hand…)

Well, um, the rumors of him being difficult to deal with are apparently more than rumors.

DeMarcus Cousins was kicked out of Kings practice today by coach Paul Westphal, according to a tweet by Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee. No details on why yet, but we’re all looking forward to that (and the spin that comes with it).

There apparently have been repeated clashes between Cousins and the Kings coaching staff, which has led to fines and more. Of course, this didn’t stop other teams from calling about Cousins (kind of the opposite).

But that gives the Kings two very talented young players with reputations of being challenging to deal with at times (Tyreke Evans is the other, though apparently not on the scale of Cousins). If you don’t think chemistry matters, go try to find the Kings in the standings (and they are 1-9 in their last 10).

    This is why I was apparently the only person on earth to rank DC right near the very bottom of my draft board back BEFORE the draft:

    the basketball fans of Sactown deserve way better than this, they are starting to look like that disfunctional Portland Jailblazers team from back in the day. Reke doing 160 miles an hour on the freeway, proved he’s as dumb as a rock and now DC is adding on to the stupidity (which in his defense, probably can’t be helped) he makes Ron Artest look like Kevin Johnson or BJ Armstrong. And they plan to move these morons to sin city?
