Report: Karl seeks approval to trade Kings C DeMarcus Cousins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Kings coach George Karl and front office personnel have told opposing team executive that they hope to soon secure ownership authorization to shop star center DeMarcus Cousins, sources have told Yahoo Sports.

Cousins could fetch quite a package. He has become more productive in time. He finished last season averaging a career-best 24.1 points and 12.7 rebounds per game.

Cousins averaged 24.1 points and 12.7 rebounds in 59 games last season.
