DeMarcus Cousins Was Kicked out of Practice

by November 30, 2010

The DeMarcus Cousins trainwreck is taking place in Sac-Town to the surprise of, well, nobody. The Bee has the latest: “Kings rookie center DeMarcus Cousins was kicked out of Monday’s practice. Cousins slipped to fifth in June’s NBA draft because of questions about his maturity and attitude. He was fined earlier this season after a verbal dispute with the Kings’ strength and conditioning coach. ‘It was a necessary move in our continued attempt to help him develop,’ said Kings coach Paul Westphal of removing Cousins from practice. Westphal declined to explain why Cousins made it through only two-thirds of practice. ‘I’m not going to get into details,’ Westphal said. ‘He was asked to leave early.’ Cousins is struggling to find his place in the offense and to stay out of foul trouble.”
