The NBA Players Association will appeal the league's two-game suspension of Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, according to NBA reporter Chris Sheridan.

Cousins was suspended for two games by the NBA after a confrontation with San Antonio Spurs broadcaster and former NBA forward Sean Elliott. Elliott criticized Cousins for trash-talking with Spurs forward Tim Duncan during Sacramento's 97-86 loss on November 9th. Afterwards, Cousins waited in uniform for Elliott to finish his post-game responsibilities, after which the two were seen having a heated verbal exchange.
