Jaleel Cousins, DeMarcus Cousins' Brother, Headlines Kings' 7th Pre-Draft Workout

The Sacramento Kings announced their 7th pre-draft workout earlier this afternoon. Jaleel Cousins, younger brother of DeMarcus Cousins, will 'headline' (I use that term very loosely) the workout set to take place on June 18th. That will mark the fourth straight day of workouts for the Kings, because you can never be too thorough when it comes to scouting potential undrafted rookie free agents.

Via Kings.com -

  • Jaleel Cousins (C – 6’10" 265 lbs.) South Florida
  • Quincy Ford (F – 6’8" 212 lbs.) Northeastern
  • Alex Hamilton (G – 6’4" 195 lbs.) Louisiana Tech
  • Angel Rodriguez (G – 5’11" 185 lbs.) Miami
  • Josh Scott (F – 6’10" 245 lbs.) Colorado
  • Ryan Spangler (F – 6’8" 234 lbs.) Oklahoma
So, yeah. Jaleel Cousins would be a pretty safe assumptive summer league signing. I haven't seen anyone suggest he'll be drafted on June 23rd, but he has talent. Basketball Insiders' Alex Kennedy, specifically, has talked about some of Cousins' impressive workouts this summer.


Of course, Jaleel Cousins' most recent claim to fame was a disappointing TMZ report of a nightclub incident. Details are fuzzy, and nothing seems to have come from it, but I suppose it's worth noting (or maybe it isn't?). I wouldn't judge him on one bad night, anyway, but it's an unfortunate part of his 'story' for the time being.

Outside of Cousins, Josh Scott is a fringe NBA prospect, coming it at #99 on Chad Ford's top-100.

Generally speaking, as we get closer to the draft, these workouts are supposed to get better. I have no idea what the Kings are doing right now.
