DeMarcus Cousins is Reinstated after One Game Suspension

After being suspended for one game due to conduct detrimental to the team, the Sacramento Kings have reinstated DeMarcus Cousins.

Cousins said in a recent interview with USA Today that he would like to stay with the Kings rather than be traded.

“I want to be in Sacramento,” he told USA TODAY Sports.

Asked if he wanted to be in Sacramento for the long term and if he could see himself wanting to sign another contract with the team either this summer (by way of an extension) or when his rookie deal expires after next season and he would become a restricted free agent, Cousins paused for some three seconds before answering.

“I want to be in Sacramento,” he repeated. “The possibility does exist. It’s a possibility.”

DeMarcus practiced this morning with the Kings in preparation for Wednesday’s game at Portland.
