Adande: Kurt Thomas Has Advice For DeMarcus Cousins

63
ESPN.com's J.A. Adande, covering the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Clippers game on Sunday, asked veteran Blazers forward Kurt Thomas for his thoughts on the developing brouhaha involving Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins was sent home by Kings coach Paul Westphal for allegedly demanding a trade, something Cousins denies doing. ----------------------------- If the Kings wanted to look after Cousins' best interests they would find a way to get him to Portland so he could be around Kurt Thomas, the steadying locker-room presence on the ninth stop on his 17-year NBA journey. "This is a business," is what Thomas said he would tell Cousins. "You're not playing for just one team, you're playing for the 29 other teams. You've got to keep playing, keep your head. A lot of guys think it's all show. You've got to keep your head." ----------------------------- ed: text updated, bumped to front page
