Default Report: DeMarcus Cousins Very Bad At USA workouts.

DeMarcus Cousins was "very bad" at Team USA workouts last month, according to a report citing sources who were in attendance.

Pete D'Alessandro has supported Cousins this offseason and the Sacramento Kings' new owner, Vivek Ranadivé, made a point of watching Cousins at Team USA workouts.

Cousins is eligible for a contract extension.

So much of his talk of being the best front court player there, or in NBA for that matter. There was a report of him laughing with his agent at the other players at the USA camp. Bad attitude and bad play and of course he'll want the max.

All the talent in the world and probably one of the worst defenders at his position (and not because he doesn't have the tools).

RGM quoting Grantland. One sentence in a very a large article on Cousins that really doesn't talk much at all about the team USA work-outs.

From the article above:

The transition should be easier on offense, where Cousins too often undermines his own talents with hilariously bad judgment. He fancies himself a long-range shooter, but he cannot shoot very well. Cousins shot 32 percent on a totally irresponsible 5.2 long 2-point jumpers per 40 minutes last season, per; among 117 players who jacked at least 3.5 such shots per 40 minutes, only Rudy Gay, Anthony Davis, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist hit a lower percentage than Big Cuz.
But on topic, cousins is terrible on defense, and its not because he can't be good at it, it's because he doesn't try. Regardless of how bad the culture in Sacramento is, that can only be blamed on him
