DeMarcus Cousins asks reporters whether they want Kings to keep him (video)

DeMarcus Cousins – who can be both combative and fun with the media – put both traits forward after the Kings’ win over the Pistons last night.

Cousins will reportedly sign a veteran-designated-player contract extension that projects to pay him about $219 million over five years and will keep him in Sacramento long-term. But rather than discuss his future himself, Cousins grabbed a microphone and singled out Sacramento Bee writers Ailene Voisin and Andy Furillo asked whether they wanted the Kings to keep him.

Voisin said no comment. Furillo said his preference would be no.

Cousins responded with a hearty smile and some confident words.
