Sacramento Kings suspend DeMarcus Cousins indefinitely for conduct - ESPN
"The Sacramento Kings announced Saturday that DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended indefinitely for "unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team."
Cousins was benched in the second half against the Clippers on Friday after a verbal altercation with coach Keith Smart. Cousins said he "was in the wrong" during halftime.
"I won't share that right now, but it's just a conduct issue," Smart said after the game. "We're trying to set a standard here, and when guys move below that standard, things are going to take place. We'll just move on to the next game, and I'll make some decisions from there."
Smart avoided comment on whether the incident stemmed from Cousins' benching in the first quarter.
"I don't (want to) get caught up too much on what takes place on the court," he said. "Because players get hot and say things; I say things on the court as well."
