Cousins was benched in the second half against the Clippers on Friday after a verbal altercation with coach Keith Smart. Cousins said he “was in the wrong” during halftime.
“I won’t share that right now, but it’s just a conduct issue,” Smart said after the game. “We’re trying to set a standard here, and when guys move below that standard, things are going to take place. We’ll just move on to the next game, and I’ll make some decisions from there.”
