"DeMarcus never demanded a trade"

Cousins' agent, John Greig, tells SI.com: "DeMarcus never demanded a trade. I'm surprised the Kings, if they believe the player wanted..." -continued- "...a trade, wouldn't have made a phone call to his representative. Maybe Westphal is just feeling the heat early this season."

SACRAMENTO, CALIF., Jan. 1, 2012 -- "Whenever a new season begins, in any sport, there is great hope that everything will progress in only a steady, upward direction. As we all know, it seldom happens like that in this life! As coaches, we can only ask that our players do everything they can to improve themselves as individuals and teammates. If they do this with all their hearts, we live with the results. Everything that happens on a team does not become known to the public. This is how it should be. However, when a player continually, aggressively, lets it be known that he is unwilling/unable to embrace traveling in the same direction as his team, it cannot be ignored indefinitely. DeMarcus Cousins has demanded to be traded. In the best interest of our team as we go forward, he has been directed by me, with the support of management, to stay home from the New Orleans game tonight."

Official Statement from Paul Westphal This team is a mess right now. Jason Jones and Sam Amick are both reporting that DeMarcus did NOT demand a trade. Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that DeMarcus yelled "Trade me now" after the NYK games in a heated exchange with Westphal. And Westphal himself is saying that DeMarcus has asked to be traded twice.
