WATCH: Kings' DeMarcus Cousins mops floor before game against Sixers is postponed

DeMarcus Cousins really can do it all.

While the start of the Sacramento Kings game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday was delayed because of an issue with the court, Cousins was trying to help by mopping the floor:

Here's the initial announcement from the Sixers:

The Philadelphia 76ers game tonight against the Sacramento Kings has been delayed due to an issue regarding the surface of the court. Arena officials are currently working on the surface to ensure that it is suitable for play tonight and that player safety is paramount."

In the couple of hours before the scheduled 7 p.m. ET tipoff, players on both teams did their normal warmups while staffers tried to get the court ready. After fans showed up, the Sixers received permission from the NBA to delay the game. More than an hour later, an announcement finally came that the game was postponed. The crowd, of course, booed.

The league also released an official statement, saying that the game was "postponed due to unsafe playing conditions on the arena floor" and will be rescheduled. Sixers CEO Scott O'Neil said in an interview on CSN that the Kings would visit Philadelphia likely at the beginning or end of their long road trip in January.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey, the slippery court was the result of unusually high temperatures inside and outside of the arena. Someone reportedly didn't turn the heat down during the day.
