DeMarcus Cousins And George Karl Shook Hands At Summer League Game, And It Was Extremely Awkward

Sacramento Kings star DeMarcus Cousins and head coach George Karl are not on the best terms. Karl reportedly wanted to trade Cousins before the NBA draft which irked Cousins who famously called Karl a “snake in the grass” on Twitter.


Today, Karl went over to shake Cousins’ hand at the Kings-Warriors Summer League game and the tension was palpable.

Both Karl and Cousins will probably have to work things out since it doesn’t seem the Kings are interested in firing Karl or trading Cousins at the moment.
