Don’t stop if you’ve read this before, because you have. But there seems to be disconnect among the leaders of the Sacramento Kings.
George Karl said in early April that he’s “never had one player that I have said is untradeable.”
Apparently, Vlade Divac doesn’t feel the same way.
Divac, the Vice President of Basketball and Franchise Operations, said on the radio today that Cousins is indeed untradeable.
"DeMarcus is untradeable & a guy who we want to build around" Divac on DeMarcus Cousins

Cousins is coming off his best season in the NBA. He posted career-high averages in points (24.1), rebounds (12.7), assists (3.6) and blocks (1.7). It’s also Karl’s first offseason with the Kings. While Karl may just be being honest, Divac came to protect Cousins and the thought of him being moved.
