DeMarcus Cousins Wants To Know "Real Answer" To Why He's Not In The NBA

DeMarcus Cousins has been angling to get back into the NBA all season. But after a flurry of moves at the trade deadline, then buyouts, 10-day contracts and free agent signings, Boogie remains on the outside looking in. Turns out, he's still looking for answers as to why.

That's the untold secret of the NBA. You can never really get an honest answer. 

Cousins told SiriusXM NBA Radio, "I look at myself—what can I do to better myself? That's something I pride myself on. I've asked many questions, I've reached out to former teams, and I kind of get sugar-coated answers. I can never really get the raw honest truth”. 

Last season, Boogie got two teams to bite, the Milwaukee Bucks (17 games) and the Denver Nuggets (31 games), averaging 9.0 points and 5.6 rebounds in a solid 15 minutes off the bench. 

Back just before the start of the current season, Cousins came out publicly, practically pleading for another chance in the NBA, claiming he's not some "angry monster."

But the season has come and gone, and Boogie is without an NBA job. He may not be angry, but he is certainly confused as to why.
