DeMarcus Cousins has received a substantial fine from the Sacramento Kings for his confrontation with a reporter from the Sacramento Bee.
The fine amount was undisclosed and there was no game suspension from the Kings.
“The Kings have a clear set of standards of conduct expected of our entire organization. As a result of negative interactions with certain members of the media that were not corrected after verbal warnings, we have decided to impose a substantial fine,” the team said in a statement to ESPN. “If this behavior is repeated again we will be forced to consider further discipline.”
The column referenced the arrest of Cousins’ brother.
