Report: DeMarcus Cousins wants Kings to draft Willie Cauley-Stein
It's silly to think players don't have opinions about the NBA draft just like the rest of us. DeMarcus Cousins is no exception.
The Kentucky product wants the Kings to bring in someone to play next to him down low, and who better for that than fellow Wildcat Willie Cauley-Stein? From ESPN's Ryen Russillo:
Few trade notes. The scouts put WC Stein in special tier as a defensive player. Heard Cousins wants him @6 so he doesn't have to play C.— Russillo (@ryenarussillo) June 11, 2015
Cousins has gone on record with a few comments in the past that make him look like a bit of a Kentucky homer, but hey, when you played for John Calipari and turned yourself into a top-five pick while doing it, you certainly get a pass in that regard.
