The Sacramento King Is Fed Up With Cousins?

Some buzz going around the league points that Demarcus Cousins is not really having a great time with the Sacramento Kings. This might have been evident in his recent tweet which said ?Lord give me the strength?, along with an emoji.

In an interview, ?he revealed that it?s just ?bad timing?. ?I told you, it was my hot sculpting class. I know it sounds ridiculous, but yeah. I?m busted. The sad thing is it?s not as bad as people try to make it seem. Of course everybody is on the outside looking in, but we know about it on the inside. It?s getting us to that good place. We?ve hit some bumps, we?ve had our mistakes, but I think we?re on the right path now,? he added.

Cousins have been receiving comments for being lazy on the court. He was also seen ?jogging, or even walking, back on both offensive and defensive positions. Demarcus Cousins is also labeled as ?coach killer,? hinting that his attitude is what caused his team to employ six coaches in the past six years. Demarcus Cousins was also suspended for being rude at Spurs analyst Sean Elliot, and who can forget when he was sent home by his coach Paul Westphal. This attitude is seen as the reason of his impending departure from the Kings.

Will Cleveland Cavaliers Approach Cousins?

Reports say that the Cleveland Cavaliers wants to trade Kevin Love for Demarcus Cousins. Because the team is feeling that Cousins can play both the power forward and center position far better than Kevin Love. Love scored only 16.0 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in I 2015-16 NBA regular season. ??But Cousins scored ?27 points and 11.5 rebounds per game last season.
