Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins confronted Sacramento Bee columnist Andy Furillo in the locker room in response to a story written by Furillo that referenced the May arrest of Cousins' brother, Jaleel, as shown in a video published by the Bee on Friday.

The younger Cousins, who once played college basketball at South Florida, was arrested after an incident at a Tampa club. The elder Cousins was at the same bar but was not directly involved or charged.

The reference in Furillo's column was part of a larger story about an incident at a New York club this month when Kings forward Matt Barnes allegedly choked a woman and Cousins allegedly hit a man in the face, according to the Bee.


“We’re going to have some real f---ing issues. Don’t ever mention my brother again. You don't know my f---ing brother. F---ing coward," Cousins is seen in the video saying to Furillo. "You say whatever you want to say about me but don't mention my f---ing family.”

Cousins has long been at the center of trade speculation, including his name being loosely connected to the Wizards because of his friendship with former college teammate John Wall.
