RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

The enigmatic and supremely talented Cousins didn't hit that next gear that many pundits expected in his third season, instead taking a slight step back from his stellar sophomore campaign, but he was still able to put together a very solid campaign. Cousins finished the year with averages of 17.1 points, 9.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 31 minutes per game. His shooting percentages both started trending in the right direction, as Cousins posted career-best marks of 47 percent from the floor and 74 percent from the line. But the biggest question mark with Cousins remains the maturity issues that have plagued him in the past. The Kings are under new management with a new owner and coach taking over the reins. The new brass have been vocally supportive of Cousins all offseason and plan to build around the talented 23-year-old going forward. Given his erratic ways in the past, there's certainly some risk involved with Cousins, but his talent level is topnotch, and he still has the potential of developing into a truly elite big man for both the Kings and fantasy squads.

2012-13

While all the question marks that have surrounded Cousins about his character and maturity throughout the years are still legit, there’s no mistaking he’s an elite-level talent after his sophomore campaign with the Kings. After an up-and-down rookie campaign, Cousins turned into a double-double machine in 2011-12, finishing the season with averages of 18.1 points, 11.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks in under 31 minutes per game. His play only got stronger as the season went on, as he averaged 19 or more points each of the final three months of the regular season. Despite the breakout, Cousins still needs to improve his decision making, which led to a 44.8 percent shooting percentage, 2.7 turnovers and 4.0 fouls per game. With smarter play, he should see extra playing time. Talent-wise, though, it’s tough to argue with what Cousins has to offer. He has an array of low-post moves, while also being able hit outside shots or take similar sized big men off the dribble. After the firing of Paul Westphal early last season, it’s clear the Kings are committed to building around Cousins. Given his vast amount of potential, fantasy owners should consider doing the same.

2011-12

The volatile big man out of Kentucky had the up-and-down rookie campaign most expected – falling in and out of favor with Kings coach Paul Westphal, but looking like a dominant post presence and future All-Star when properly motivated. Cousins finished the season with averages of 14.1 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.8 blocks. He struggled with his efficiency across the board, though, shooting just 43.0 percent from the floor and 68.7 percent from the line while turning the ball over 3.3 times per game. Cousins’ immaturity also was evident in his 4.1 fouls per game as his mistakes on the defensive end of the court often led to foul trouble. Despite these obvious concerns, it’s hard not to get excited about Cousins’ future. He has an array of post moves that will enable him to be one of the better scorers on the block once he matures and becomes more efficient. While the Kings have other big men like J.J. Hickson and Jason Thompson on their roster, Cousins remains the only post player on the team with the potential to be a franchise-type player. This could be the last time he comes at a discount on draft day.

2010-11

Thanks to character and work ethic concerns, Cousins fell to No. 5 in this year's draft, where Sacramento happily snatched him up. He dominated at times during Summer League play, averaging 16.2 points and 10.8 rebounds, flashing an impressive midrange game combined with good strength down low. However, he faded badly, shooting just 20 percent (9-for-45) from the floor over the final three games in Las Vegas, which highlights the concerns about his conditioning. He also seemed aloof and was reluctant to take coaching advice at times – so red flags remain. The hope is Cousins will be motivated to prove himself in the NBA after hearing so much criticism and falling to the fifth pick. With such a young roster, the Kings will certainly give him all the playing time he can handle right from the start. Cousins has the physical tools to be a double-double machine, but there's hardly a guarantee he lives up to his vast potential.
