DeMarcus Cousins is that type of player with a world of talent but a maturity level that tends to hold him back and make him a headache for his coach.

Well, now a European coach might be getting a taste. According to a tweet from's Sam Amick, Cousins' agent John Greig says his client is in negotiations with "multiple" European teams.

There haven't been a whole lot of rookie deal players rumored to be looking overseas. I don't think there's a real reason for that, but Cousins looking at his European options shouldn't come as a surprise. He's not a household name that's going to draw a ton of financial interest, but he is a fairly significant NBA player.

No specific team is known as of now or any specific country even, but Cousins is joining the lot of players checking out what he has overseas.
