RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

This past NBA season saw Cousins establish himself as one of the top centers in the NBA after playing for Team USA over the summer and earning his first NBA All-star bid. Although limited to just 59 games for Sacramento, Cousins still managed to take his game to another level in his fifth season. In 34 minutes per game, he averaged 24.1 points, 12.7 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 1.7 blocks while shooting 78 percent from the line, all of which were career-highs. Cousins is a matchup nightmare on the offensive end, mixing his ability to bully opposing big men inside while being able to knock down jumpers as far out as 20 feet. His primary weakness remains his knack for piling up unnecessary fouls. New GM Vlade Divac has attempted to get him help in the form of Rajon Rondo and Marco Belinelli. The addition of rookie Willie Cauley-Stein should help keep Cousins out of foul trouble and allow him to be more efficient offensively, but that also likely cuts into his rebounding and block totals. Still just 25 years old, Cousins may assert himself as an All-NBA first team selection this upcoming season.

2014-15

The 2013-14 season saw Cousins firmly establish himself among the league's elite frontcourt players. Coming off of a 2012-13 campaign in which he averaged 17.1 points and 9.9 rebounds, Cousins upped his all-around production, boosting his scoring more than five points per game (22.7) while averaging career-highs in rebounds (11.7) and assists (2.9). He also shot a career-best 50 percent from the field and converted nearly 70 percent of his attempts within three feet of the rim. Arguably the year's biggest All-Star snub, Cousins finished the season with the fifth-highest PER (26.1) in the league, and ranked among the top five in rebounds per game, total rebound percentage, defensive rebound percentage (first), and usage rate. Despite the vast all-around improvement, Cousins' career continues to be overshadowed by lingering character issues. It's well-known that he's among the league's most intense competitors, but he often draws criticism for allowing his emotions to spill over onto the court. Cousins ranked among the top four in personal fouls for the fourth straight season and picked up a league-high 16 technicals. Still, he hasn't let his emotions affect his production, and he figures to again be among the top fantasy forwards/centers this season. The Kings may be a few years away from contending, but after a strong summer with Team USA at the FIBA World Cup, Cousins' stock is higher than ever.

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, thereís no mistaking heís 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, itís 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, itís 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 Ė 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. Cousinsí 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, itís hard not to get excited about Cousinsí 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 Ė 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.
