Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has no respect for Charles Barkley


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Barkley was frustrated the team reportedly consulted Cousins before hiring new coach George Karl.

"Why are they discussing it with him," Barkley said during a TNT telecast. "Yeah, I am totally disgusted with that. ... He hasn't done enough to deserve that type of power. [The Kings] stink. Why would you give a guy that young that type of power?"

Cousins, who is averaging career highs in points (23.8) and rebounds (12.4), responded to Barkley's criticism.

ESPN reported the Kings are closing in on a deal for Karl to become the team's next coach.

"Only a dramatic and unexpected collapse in the final stages of negotiations" will prevent Karl from joining the team, per the report. The two sides are reportedly working on what's expected to be a four-year contract that will give the team its third coach this season.

Interim coach Tyrone Corbin was informed Monday that Wednesday's game in Milwaukee would likely be his last in charge.

According to ESPN, Karl has begun assembling a coaching staff to join him in Sacramento, which may include his son and former NBA player Coby Karl. The elder Karl ranks sixth all-time among coaches in career wins and was the named NBA Coach of the Year for the 2012-13 season for his work with the Nuggets.

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins responded Tuesday to assertions about his role in the team's coaching search, saying, "I don't fire coaches or hire them."
