Kings Mike Malone Wants to Run Offense Through Cousins ‘At Times’
New Kings coach Mike Malone has high expectations of DeMarcus Cousins. He plans to use the much maligned star in multiple of ways offensively.
I’ve talked about DeMarcus a lot, but he’s so talented. He’s a big who can play away from the basket. But I’m going to ask him to play inside as well this year, be a guy we can run our offense through at times, because he can be such a good passer. The challenge for him is to cut down on those three turnovers a game. The luxury we had last year at Golden State, we had two bigs (David Lee and Andrew Bogut) who were not only good passers but willing passers. My hope is we get to that at some point.
It’s time for Cousins to mature and embrace being the franchise guy.
