DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended indefinitely by the Sacramento Kings for "unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team," GM Geoff Petrie announced Saturday.

Cousins didn't return in the second half of Friday's game against the Clippers following an argument with coach Keith Smart.

"We're trying to set a standard for all of our players," Smart said following the loss, according to a Kings fan site, Cowbell Kingdom. "And all of our guys that are here (know that). And when guys don't fall in line to that, we've got to move on, we've got to move forward."

The talented big-man out of Kentucky and the organization that drafted him in 2010 appear ready to part ways after 2 1/2 years of inconsistent play and consistent distractions, though finding a buyer for a well-documented problem player won't be easy.

Cousins is averaging 16.6 points and 9.5 rebounds this season for Sacramento (8-17). He has seven technical fouls and already has missed 3 1/2 games via suspensions.

I think this will be the player will still cause uk problems before all is said and done.   He will be the one flopping his jaws and spilling the beans on the 'goings on' under Sleazy Cal

DeMarcus Thuggins. I thought Cal taught him how to be a man before sending him to the wolves in the NBA? Oh, thats right, Cal just chews them up and spits them out. AAUK
