Sacramento Kings GM, Vlade Divac, has suspended DeMarcus Cousins.
The Kings released the follow statement:
The Sacramento Kings have suspended center DeMarcus Cousins for one game for conduct detrimental to the team, according to Vice President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Vlade Divac.
Cousins will serve the suspension in Sacramento’s next contest against the Orlando Magic on Friday.
During Wednesday’s night home game against Cleveland, the star center got into a confrontation with head coach George Karl. Cousins was visually and vocally upset with Karl.
The Kings went on to lose the game to the Cavs, 120-111. George Karl had to miss practice Thursday for a minor “cancer” procedure in his throat.
