HoopsHype DeMarcus Cousins rumors


December 17, 2014 Updates

Jackson, Mullin, and Cousins entered the room at approximately 10:20 p.m. Pacific time, with Cousins sporting a black suit as he continues to recover from his bout with viral meningitis that has kept him out of action since Nov. 26. D'Alessandro joined them approximately 20 minutes into the meeting, and the group finally exited just before midnight, long after the room had been cleared so that they could have a moment to discuss, well, connect the dots yourself.

“Everybody knows my relationship with Malone,” Cousins told a swath of media members. “I learned a lot from him. I’m very thankful to be able to play for coach Malone. But at the end of the day, you know, this is a business and everything doesn’t always work out the way we want it to. I wish nothing but the best for coach. I hate it had to end this way, but he has my respect. He’s a great coach.” Cowbell Kingdom

“This is more of a surprise, unexpected,” Cousins said of losing Malone. “It’s kinda hard. I think it’s a lot more emotional on the team this year, because so many guys believe in Malone and his system and this is so unexpected.” “You could see it on the guys’ faces,” Cousins added. “You could feel it in the locker room. We got to find a way to get past this and grow. Stay together, stay strong and keep moving forward. ” Cowbell Kingdom

Malone said there is no timetable for Cousins to return. The Kings were 2-5 without Cousins heading into Thursday’s game. “We’re going to take a cautious approach with him, not rush him at all,” Malone said. “The doctors want us to be cautious because if you rush him back, it kind of triggers things. He’s been in the gym the last couple days, but very, very limited right now.” Houston Chronicle
