The Kings have a foundational piece, arguably the best true center in the game in DeMarcus Cousins, a guy who scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds a game last season — and new coach George Karl is trying to force him out the door. Because Karl isn’t sure he can coach him, and because Karl wants to chase the all-time coaching win record, and he isn’t going to be patient with rebuilding. Plus, he just doesn’t seem to like Cousins. The problem for Karl is, the Kings’ owner does like Cousins. A lot. And he is not green lighting a trade.
We delve into the Kings mess — and where Cousins might land if Karl gets his way — in this latest PBT Podcast. In it PBT’s Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman, plus NBCSports’ Dominic Ridgard also get into talk about Monta Ellis, Dwyane Wade, LaMarcus Aldridge and a host of other NBA rumors and stories leading into the draft.
