NBA -- DeMarcus Cousins looks to make most of second chance with USA Basketball
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jul 23, 2013
DeMarcus Cousins is back at USA Basketball camp this summer. He invited Cousins back for another look, and the Sacramento Kings forward could be just what Team USA needs. The pack of reporters around Cousins after Monday's maiden workout was so deep that John Calipari, who attended the session as a guest of USA Basketball to see some of his former players, jokingly complained that "I couldn't find him." He says he's happy and eager to show that he's ready to take on the challenge and the responsibility that come with representing his country. Cousins was part of the U.S. Calipari was looking for Cousins to inform him that they'd be dining together Monday night, where it's reasonable to assume that the Sacramento manchild was reminded once again by his college coach how crucial it is that he capitalize on this second chance afforded by Colangelo and Krzyzewski. But things ended on a sour note after a disagreement with managing director Jerry Colangelo.
