Kings planning on thanking DeMarcus Cousins on-court tomorrow during Pelicans game
According to ESPN’s Marc J. Spears, the Kings have cooked up a special in-game program to show gratitude for all the good deeds Cousins had done to the community during his stay in Sacramento.

While Cousins and the Kings didn’t see each other eye to eye most of the time before, it’s an internal animosity that did not reflect how much Cousins loves Sacramento fans and the community.
Cousins often involved himself in outreach programs in Sacramento and in fact bid the city a genuine, heartfelt goodbye when he learned that the Kings traded him to New Orleans back in February.
After getting selected fifth overall by the Kings in the 2010 NBA Draft, Boogie went on to play seven seasons for Sacramento and failed to reach the playoffs during that span despite the otherworldly talent Cousins was displaying on a nightly basis.
Cousins may have been part of the Kings’ problem, but there’s no debating his impact on Sacramento’s fans.
Thursday’s special program is proof of that.
