Kings' Cousins Reportedly Suspended

((HT: News10 Sacramento))

Sacramento Kings rookie center DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended by the team for Sunday's game against the Phoenix Suns, according to a report by Sam Amick of AOL Fanhouse.

Cousins did not accompany the team to Phoenix, but no one could confirm that any kind of disciplinary action had yet to be taken with Cousins.

Amick also reported that the call to remove Cousins from the team's plane and suspend him came directly from Kings GM Geoff Petrie, after a run-in between Cousins and teammate Donte Greene after Saturday night's 99-97 loss to Oklahoma City.

According to Amick, the tete-a-tete had to do with the way the team ran the final play where Tyreke Evans missed a three pointer that would have won the game with 5.5 seconds remaining.

This would be the game in question...

Cousins, apparently, was yelling at Evans- starting in the tunnel and continuing into the locker room. Both Greene and Cousins exchanged "swings", according to Amick.

Petrie has yet to confirm or deny the action, or any action, against Cousins...
