Cousins, Kings agree to deal

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento Kings have signed
rookie center DeMarcus Cousins to a contract.
The team announced the deal with the No. 5 pick in the draft on
Wednesday. Cousins can earn about $7 million in the first two years
of the deal, and the Kings have separate team options for the third
and fourth seasons.
Cousins averaged 15.1 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks as a
freshman at Kentucky. He was one of five Wildcats taken in the
first round of the draft.
The Kings are counting on Cousins to be the dominating inside
presence they have been lacking in recent years.
