Cousins denies sending inappropriate photo

A woman is alleging Kings center DeMarcus Cousins sent her an inappropriate photo via text message.

Cousins, through his agent, John Greig, denied sending the photo. Greig said he would contact NBA security about the situation today.

Greig wrote: "Rest assured that DeMarcus Cousins has not sent any nude photos to any woman at any time. Allegations that he has and internet websites that are reporting such are erroneous. These websites should take the images claiming to be DeMarcus down and apologize. It is a sad reflection of where our culture is that someone can send and post these type of things without any accountability."

The photo began showing up on web sites Tuesday.

UPDATE -- 12:55 p.m.

Kings head coach Keith Smart said he is aware of the situation and expects Cousins will address it through his agency.

"That's in the hands of his representatives," Smart said. "They'll deal with it. My focus is on the floor right now."

Cousins was not present when the team opened its shootaround to media this morning.
