Player Outlook

As good as DeMarcus Cousins had been through the first four seasons of his career, he took things to an entirely different level in 2014-15, emerging as one of the most dominant big men in the game. He finished fifth in the league in Fantasy points per game on the strength of 24.1 points, 12.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.7 blocks per game -- all career-highs. Just about the only negative marks on his record were his 4.3 turnovers per game and the fact that he missed 23 games due to a variety of issues. He improved his numbers across the board in the second half of the season under new coach George Karl, though also appeared to deal with conditioning issues in Karl's fast-paced offensive system. There were also rumblings this summer that Cousins and Karl aren't on the same page, with reports even coming out that Karl wanted Cousins out. The personalities may not fit, but Karl and Cousins could be a match made in Fantasy heaven, so let's hope they patch things up and can get along. If they do, Cousins should be the top center in the league for Fantasy purposes, with Anthony Davis now ineligible at the position in standard leagues. Cousins is a first-round pick in all formats, warts and all.

Latest News
  • George Karl believes he can repair his fractured relationship with Kings star and center DeMarcus Cousins. He just figures it will take time. "I don't think it's something we have to rush through," Karl told Yahoo Sports. "You got two guys that are very frustrated with losing, two guys that are somewhat stubborn and two guys that love to compete. ... Sometimes that doesn't work the first time you hang around. But you have to take your time to make it work." Karl had reportedly asked after the season that Cousins be traded.

  • The Kings and Lakers have exchanged possible frameworks of a trade that would involve All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins on Wednesday, sources told Yahoo Sports. The Kings are rumored to have engaged in trade talks for Cousins with other teams beyond the Lakers. The Lakers, though, have a number of assets that seem to intrigue the Kings, including the No. 2 pick in Thursday's draft, second-year player Julius Randle and First Team All-Rookie guard Jordan Clarkson. The Lakers, sources say, are not willing to part with Randle or Clarkson.

  • Kings coach George Karl and front office personnel have told opposing team executive that they hope to soon secure ownership authorization to shop star center DeMarcus Cousins, sources have told Yahoo Sports. That report contradicts the words of Kings vice-president Vlade Divac, who has insisted that Cousins will not be placed on the market. Karl has reportedly recruited Divac and Kings players to convince owner Vivek Ranadive that Cousins should be dealt. The fear now is that Cousins will clash with Karl next season knowing that the latter yearned for such a trade. Sources have also told Yahoo that Ranadive has become annoyed with Karl's insistence on trading Cousins and also that the coach doesn't believe he can control the strong-willed standout. Cousins could fetch quite a package. He has become more productive in time. He finished last season averaging a career-best 24.1 points and 12.7 rebounds per game.

  • When Kings vice president Vlade Divac was asked if the team had interest in trading DeMarcus Cousins, Divas said the team would not trade the All-Star center, reports The Sacramento Bee. "That is not happening," Divac said. "But I would love to do something, a smaller move, before the draft. We have a lot of changes to make. The league is much more up-tempo now, and we need more three-point shooting. If we don't get that in the draft, we'll be active in free agency and see about making trades later in the offseason." Cousins averaged 24.1 points and 12.7 rebounds in 59 games last season.

  • Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is progressing well from a sore left foot that ended his season early, per Cousins has started to train during the offseason now that his health has improved. "I'm feeling pretty good," Cousins said. "My mind is in a good place. I'm just staying away, laying low, resting my mind and body." Cousins, who made his first All-Star team this season, says he will look to improve this offseason because his game hasn't reached the level he'd like just yet. "I feel I've still got a long way to go," Cousins said. "I'm still not satisfied, not even close."
