    I know he is crazy but his talent is huge.


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


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

    Hilarious. They should bench him for the rest of his rookie contract.

    Cousins? No. Anybody need help with cap space to take on another player for whatever reason? Yes.

    I thought the new CBA was supposed to prevent stuff like this.

    A second year player demanding a trade. Wow.

    There's no denying his talent but no thanks. The Pacers have a lot of pro's pros on the roster right now. No need to bring him in and stir the pot. The Pacers may have enough mature guys to try to keep him in line but I don't think they need another thing to worry about.

    And I think Vogel has his hands full as it is.

    Haha. This dude is a joke. Can't believe someone here compared him to Blake Griffin because Cousins is a 'leader'.

    As we know, leaders always get sent home.

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

    KBergCBS Ken Berger
    Westphail says Cousins has "continually, aggressively" refused to "embrace traveling in the same direction as his team."


    KBergCBS Ken Berger
    As a result, Westphal says, Cousins has been directed not to attend tonight's game against New Orleans.

    This may sound judgemental, but all you really need to do is look at his head shot that is used on ESPN.com...I know don't judge a book by its cover or whatever, but the guy just looks like a complete asshat.

    Statement:



    http://www.nba.com/kings/news/westph...012_01_01.html

    SACRAMENTO, CALIF., Jan. 1, 2012 -- “Whenever a new season begins, in any sport, there is great hope that everything will progress in only a steady, upward direction. As we all know, it seldom happens like that in this life!

    As coaches, we can only ask that our players do everything they can to improve themselves as individuals and teammates. If they do this with all their hearts, we live with the results.

    Everything that happens on a team does not become known to the public. This is how it should be. However, when a player continually, aggressively, lets it be known that he is unwilling/unable to embrace traveling in the same direction as his team, it cannot be ignored indefinitely.

    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.”

    You could always tell that this guy acted like a P.O.S. Hopefully, he gets his act together. He's talented, but that will only buy him time for so long. Not happy with the impact on my fantasy team.

    Well, this is the type of trades the Pacers should think about doing, if we can get him for free why not?

    there is no way in hell Larry would want him here and I really hope all of us feel the same way, with all that went on in the past, this would be a step right back to that.

    I wouldn't touch him with a 20 foot pole, and I love the kid's talent. His ****** attitude cancels out whatever talent he has.

    Because it won't be for free, and I am going to go with the Simmons Rule here: You can have one head case on a team, but you can't have two. Lance certainly qualifies as our one.

    I like Lance but I would cut his a** in a minute if I have a chance to get Cousins and I'm comparing his price to Beasley that was traded for two second round picks, almost free.

    I don't like Lance and would gladly cut his *** in a minute if it were up to me. This coming from what was probably his biggest fan when he was drafted.

    Trade him to a veteran team desperate for a talent upgrade up front? Probably Eastern Conference. Boston only has Rondo to dangle. Miami? Orlando? Nope, don't see it. Dallas (in West)?? Nah. Hmmm, how 'bout to Atlanta for Pachulia & picks?

    This is why I always said I would not draft him in any pre-draft scenario which allowed us to draft him. Too much of a head case for my liking.

    Despite the attitude, Cousins has huge trade value, much more than Beasley. Miami was mainly shedding cap with the Beasley trade. Cousins is a 21 year old, man-sized big that put up 14/8.6 in his rookie year.
