Kings suspend Cousins indefinitely

The SportsXchange

The Sacramento Kings announced Saturday that they suspended center DeMarcus Cousins indefinitely for unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team.

Cousins was banished to the locker room by coach Keith Smart for the second half of Friday night's 97-85 loss at the Los Angeles Clippers after an altercation between the two of them occurred at halftime.

Smart was vague after the game about why Cousins didn't play in the second half.

"It was conduct detrimental to the team and we left it at," he said.

Cousins told the Sacramento Bee he "was in the wrong" during a halftime altercation with Smart.

"What happens in the locker room stays in the locker room but I was wrong," Cousins said. "But what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room."

Cousins scored nine points.

Cousins is averaging a team-high 16.6 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.
