DeMarcus Cousins is Playing to His Potential

DeMarcus Cousins was suspended indefinitely by the Sacramento Kings on Dec. 23 for "unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team."

His suspension lasted for one game.

Cousins has played in six games since being reinstated and is averaging a double-double.

The former Kentucky Wildcat is averaging 21 points and nearly 14 rebounds a game in those six games and his season average is now at 17 points and 10 rebounds per game.

The Kings are also 4-2 in those games -- not bad for a team that's 13-21 overall.

With that type of production, Sacramento is looking to deal anyone on their roster -- except for Cousins.

Sacramento general manager Geoff Petrie told David Aldridge of NBA.com recently, the Kings have no plans of trading Cousins.

However, NESN.com is reporting that Cousins could be a Boston Celtic as soon as Monday morning. A source told NBAonNBC.com that Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge was working to complete a deal to bring Cousins to the Celtics by the end of Sunday night. Jeff Green, Jason Terry, Jared Sullinger and Courtney Lee have been packaged in an offer for Cousins, the website reports.
