DeMarcus Cousins: Kings would be playoff team with ‘Michael Malone’

DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins is not shy about placing the blame for another disappointing Sacramento Kings season on George Karl.

In an interview with Carmichael Dave on KHTK 1140 in Sacramento Thursday, Cousins said he believes the Kings would be a playoff team had they not fired Michael Malone at the start of last season.

Cousins made it clear from the start that he did not want the Kings to hire Karl. The two of them never got along from the day Karl took over, and it was one of the main reasons the Kings fired the veteran coach after a 33-49 season. While he also had issues with former Kings coach Keith Smart, Cousins had no problem expressing his disappointment when Malone was fired last season.

All that said, the big man said he is committed to remaining in Sacramento and turning things around.

If the Kings want Cousins to stick around over the long haul, they’d be wise to give him at least a little input in their next coaching search.
