DeMarcus Cousins Suspended Indefinitely by the Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have suspended DeMarcus Cousins indefinitely, the team announced. Cousins was benched at halftime of last night’s game against the Clippers by head coach Keith Smart, after a halftime argument between the coach and volatile player.

After the game, Cousins apologized without going into details:

“What happens in the locker room stays in the locker room but I was wrong. But what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room.”

“Don’t talk back. That’s the thing. I shouldn’t have responded back. Should have accepted what was said and stayed quiet. I messed up. I’m apologizing to all my teammates for it, for responding the way I did, and we’ll move on from it…I grow from all of my mistakes.”
