Sacramento Kings suspend forward DeMarcus Cousins indefinitely

via Ken Berger:

Kings announce they have suspended DeMarcus Cousins indefinitely for “unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team.”

While they’ve repeatedly stated a long-term commitment to Cousins, I don’t see how this marriage can last; the young power forward has apparently not made any progress with his maturity issues.

It begs the question – if the Kings reach a point where they’ve had enough, should/would the Rockets pursue?  Cousins has the talent to be the best offensive big man in the game.  And a back to the basket presence is the one element this Rockets team is lacking.  But would it be wise to poison this lockerroom with such a cancerous presence?
