Kings center DeMarcus Cousins' suspension will be appealed by the NBA players union, according to a Wednesday release from the NBPA, which called the two-game punishment "excessive and unwarranted." Cousins was suspended for a confrontation with San Antonio Spurs TV commentator Sean Elliot after a game Friday in San Antonio. On Tuesday, the NBA denied a request for reconsideration that would have permitted Cousins to against Portland. "We recognize the Commissioner's desire to discourage confrontations between players and members of the media," NBPA's Billy Hunter said in a statement. "But he needs to exercise more subtlety and discretion in ascertaining and examining the specific facts and circumstances before handing down such heavy-handed discipline."
