Sacramento Kings superstar DeMarcus Cousins has said that he is unfazed about the trade rumours involving his name as it is something he has grown accustomed to.
Cousins is one of the most talented centers in the NBA right now and as of late, he has been linked with a possible move to the Boston Celtics.
For the 26-year-old, all the trade talk is simply background noise.
“I’ve dealt with adjustments every season,” he told reporters. “I’m kind of used to it.
“It is what it is. Most of the rumors come from people who want me on their team. It (trade rumors) doesn’t bother me.”
Cousins will be a free agent in 2018 unless he works out a contract extension that will keep him with the Kings for a lengthier period of time.
While it is something Cousins hasn’t ruled out, his main focus as of now, it to lead his side to as many victories as possible and guide them into the playoffs for the first time in his career.
“I got a season and a whole other season,” he said. “I focus on these guys right here; I focus on winning games; I focus on making the playoffs; that’s it.”
While the Alabama native has turned a deaf ear to all the trade rumours, he admitted that it shows how valued he is as a player.
“I do appreciate that, but like I said, I’m a King. I’m good,” he added.
