Kings’ Cousins receives automatic suspension
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Kings star DeMarcus Cousins has been handed his automatic one-game suspension for his 16th technical of the season. He also was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for his actions during a 109-106 overtime win against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night.
Cousins will sit out tonight’s home game against Boston. He picked up his 16th technical and second of the game with 1.1 seconds left in a 112-107 loss to Chicago on Monday night.
He also had one Saturday against Golden State that triggered the fine for his gesture and inappropriate words at referee Bill Spooner.
