DeMarcus Cousins Traveling With Kings To Memphis

New, comments

According to multiple reports, DeMarcus Cousins is with the Sacramento Kings as the team travels to Memphis to play the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

There's no word on whether Cousins will play on Tuesday, or how the sitdown with Geoff Petrie scheduled for Monday went. The decision to send Cousins home on Sunday was made by Paul Westphal, and one would assume that Westphal will be the man to decide whether the center plays on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

The assignments of Hassan Whiteside and Tyler Honeycutt to the D-League's Reno Bighorns on Sunday creates an interesting complication: with Cousins in tow, the Kings have just 12 active players on the roster. It wouldn't have seemed tenable to leave Cousins in Sacramento for two road games, traveling with just 11 players. The Kings do have plenty of players to trot out at power forward if needed, though.

The Kings play the Grizzlies on Tuesday, the Nuggets in Denver on Wednesday and the Bucks in Sacramento on Thursday.
