Sacramento: DeMarcus Cousins escaped a suspension but the Sacramento Kings slapped the club's center with a $50,000 fine for bullying a reporter in the team's locker room, the US media reported on Tuesday.

Cousins took issue on December 12 with a column written by Sacramento Bee writer Andy Furillo. The story mentioned Cousins' brother Jaleel and cited an alleged confrontation involving Cousins at a Tampa-area bar last spring. The incident led to Jaleel's arrest. "Don't ever mention my brother again," a video showed the 2.11 meter (6-foot-11) Cousins saying as he towered over Furillo.
