DeMarcus Cousins shares text convo with Nik Stauskas


Sacramento Kings center and former Kentucky Wildcat DeMarcus Cousins shared (and then deleted) a conversation he had with former teammate Nik Stauskas after the former Michigan Wolverine was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers last night.

Stauskas was moved in a deal with Jason Thompson and Carl Landry so that Sacramento could clear cap space.

In the conversation, Cousins simply wishes Stauskas luck with his new team and the latter offers his thanks for help getting through his rookie season and to “keep killing it,” with an enthusiastic response from Cousins.

Though brief and simple, it offers a look into what is clearly a very positive relationship between the two.


That all being said, though Cousins is currently butting heads with both Kings management and head coach George Karl and allegedly seeking a trade, to say that he is a bad teammate despite having attitude issues since being drafted fifth overall back in 2010 is a bit of a stretch. Clearly, he is fully able to keep his problems with the team off the court and truly does care about his teammates.

Stauskas appeared in 74 games his rookie season and averaged 4.4 points across 15.4 minutes per game. In Philadelphia, he can definitely expect to have a greater role in the offense.
