“DeMarcus Cousins has demanded to be traded. In the best interest of our
team as we go forward, he has been directed by me, with the support of
management, to stay home from the New Orleans game tonight.”
While Cousins' agent disputed the trade request rumors, either way, it seems like the Kings want to be rid of DeMarcus if they went as far as to issue a statement suggesting a trade. Yes, DeMarcus is a giant headcase and it seems as though this year the Celtics have been clearing the team of any knucleheads. But on the other hand, is he a young player with a ton of potential who averages 14.1 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.
With our shortage of bigs, would you want a player like Cousins on the team? Or is it too risky to allow someone with his history of instabilities to potentially be cancerous to the team? Vote in the poll below.
