The Kings released a short video Tuesday of their weekend workout of Derrick Favors and DeMarcus Cousins. Although the two didn't go one-on-one, they were on the court for drills. They go one-on-one Monday in New Jersey.
As advertised, the 6'11" Cousins shot extraordinarily well from all over the court. Word was that he hit 78% of his shots in the workout, and there's nothing on the video to suggest those numbers were inflated. Meanwhile, the 6'10" Favors shows off some of his athleticism as well as a nice shooting stroke around the key.
In comments Tuesday, Rod Thorn described what each has to do Monday. "With a player like Cousins, can he play forward? Is there any chance he can play power forward or is he strictly a five?"
"Favors is 18 years old — won’t be 19 until September — so he’s like a work in progress. So we want to get a look at them, see how they move, see how they shoot, those kind of things."
