Report: DeMarcus Cousins will not be punished for actions vs. Warriors

Wednesday December 30th, 2015

Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will not face punishment for his actions during the team’s game against the Golden State Warriors on Monday, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports.

Cousins was in foul trouble throughout the game and started yelling at the referees after picking up his fifth foul in the third quarter. Cousins was eventually assessed two technical during the tirade and ejected from the game.

After the game, Kings general manager Vlade Divac said that he expected Cousins to face a suspension.

Cousins has been ejected 10 times during his NBA career and has faced five league suspensions.

When he can stay on the court, Cousins is one of the most dominant big men in the NBA. This season he is averaging a double-double, posting 24.3 points and 10.3 rebounds in 32.5 minutes a game.

The Kings (1219) play the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday night.
