DeMarcus Cousins April 13
Under NBA rules, a player or coach is automatically suspended without pay for one game once he receives his 16th technical foul during a regular season. For every two additional technical fouls received during that regular season, the player or coach will be automatically suspended for an additional game.
Cousins received his most recent technical foul with 1:13 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Kings' 106-103 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on April 13, at Sleep Train Arena. Cousins will serve his suspension in the Kings' season finale on Wednesday, April 16, when Sacramento hosts the Phoenix Suns.
