Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended for Tuesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
The NBA announced Sunday that Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended two games without pay for an incident involving San Antonio Spurs television analyst Sean Elliott. The second of the two games will be a Tuesday game against the Portland Trail Blazers at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento.
The Sacramento Kings' DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended two games without pay for confronting Spurs announcer Sean Elliot in a hostile manner following San Antonio's 97-86 over Sacramento November 9 at Sleep Train Arena, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations.
Cousins will serve his suspension tonight when the Kings play the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center and Tuesday against Portland at Sleep Train Arena.
Cousins was upset because Elliott called him out during the television broadcast for talking trash to Tim Duncan. He reportedly waited around after the post-game show to confront Elliott about the comments. Full details are here.
Cousins, 22, is Sacramento's leading scorer and rebounder, averaging 17.3 points and 9.8 rebounds per game so far this season.
