SACRAMENTO–

DeMarcus Cousins, the troubled Kings center, was suspended indefinitely, the team announced Saturday.

In a statement, Geoff Petrie – the Kings’ President of Basketball Operations – said that the suspension was due to “unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team.

Cousins has already been suspended twice this season, although the earlier suspensions were handed down by the NBA. A one-game suspension was given to Cousins for hitting Dallas guard OJ Mayo, while a two-game suspension was given for a “hostile” confrontation Cousins had with San Antonio Spurs announcer Sean Elliot.

As the team notes, Cousins 16.6 points per game average this season leads the team. He’s also averaging 9.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.35 steals this season.
