MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Sacramento Kings rookie DeMarcus Cousins was ejected from the game against Minnesota on Sunday after shoving the Timberwolves' Martell Webster.
Cousins got into a confrontation in the third quarter after getting tangled with Minnesota's Luke Ridnour while setting a screen. Ridnour took exception and shoved Cousins, who pushed back.
Minnesota's Nikola Pekovic stepped in and pushed Cousins out of the way. When Webster got near the area, Cousins shoved him as well, and referee Bob Delaney tossed Cousins from the game.
Ridnour received a technical foul as well.
Cousins has had several discipline issues this season. He was fined by the team and missed a game in February after fighting with a teammate and also has gotten into a few verbal altercations with coaches and teammates.
