Shocking Kings statement released regarding DeMarcus Cousins, who was sent home from the team's home game against New Orleans tonight.

Kings coach Paul Westphal says Cousins demanded to be traded: "When a player continually, aggressively, lets it be known that he is...

Westphal: "...unwilling/unable to embrace traveling in the same direction as his team, it cannot be ignored indefinitely."

Cousins' agent, John Greig, tells SI.com: "DeMarcus never demanded a trade. I'm surprised the Kings, if they believe the player wanted..."

Greig: "...a trade, wouldn't have made a phone call to his representative. Maybe Westphal is just feeling the heat early this season."

The Kings shot 34.9 percent from the field in a 114-92 loss to the Knicks on Saturday night.

"I don't know what that was," center DeMarcus Cousins said. "Running the offense coach tells us to run. Just doing what coach say. Got to do what your coach say."

Tyreke Evans, who scored 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting, seemed even more out of sorts.

"I just try to get open as I can and create," Evans said. "It's no real set for me, nobody really in the offense. Just pass, cut. We lost; nobody really knows what to do. I think that's what's really hurting us right now.

"We just look lost," Evans said. "We're just playing off our natural talent to get our points. It's terrible right now. We've just got to figure something out."

The last time the Rockets traded for a headcase from the Kings, he led them to game 7 of the Second Round of playoffs

Oh man the Rockets should jump all over this. Westphal is doing a horrendous job over there and I'm sure Cousins sure would love to have a big man coach in McHale while being given all the opportunities to succeed in a position of need here.

What has he done that makes him such a headcase? Don't really want to look it up.

He can hang out with Terrence Williams?

Anyways, Cousins' agent apparently denies he demand a trade.


Kings' Paul Westphal issues statement saying DeMarcus Cousins has demanded a trade. Agent John Greig tells SI.com it isn't true. A mess.

Trade him to the Cavaliers. Then, he will find out how bad LeBron had it. LOL.

Isn't one of McHale's specialties handling personalities?

Also, isn't another one of McHale's specialties improving games of NBA big men?

Hill and Patterson.. for Cousins.. Patterson is replaceable in next years draft.

Cousins is a legit C that we need for the future.

Lowry
Martin
Budinger
Scola
Cousins

Trade whatever it takes in Scola, Budinger, 2nd rounders to get Batum.

and draft Perry Jones

Lowry
Martin
Batum
P. Jones
Cousins

I understand the problems with the offense, although I'm trying to remember the last time I've heard so many negative comments about a head coach from some of his best players, right out in the open. Wow. Do you take the chance on Cousins if he's available? The guy could end up being a giant pain in the arse, like Williams, but damn, he has the tools. How can a center have such a low shooting percentage? Does their point guard absolutely suck at being a point guard?
