It’s not all red carpets and pre-award show parties for Boogie Cousins this week. The big fella is working his tail off as the Team USA mini-camp approaches.
Kings head coach Michael Malone and team management flew to Mobile, Al. recently to let DeMarcus know they consider him the cornerstone of the franchise and they plan to build around him. He’s working hard to not let them, and Team USA, down when he returns to the court.
DeMarcus averaged 17.1 points and 9.9 rebounds last season. That fraction of a rebound keeping him from a double-double is also a motivator this offseason.
