Triano: Cousins Capable Of Averaging 15-20 Rebounds Per Game
DeMarcus Cousins spent one week training with the U.S. Select Team, which was coached by Jay Triano.
"He's a super talent,” Triano said of Cousins. “He can make shots. He gets rebounds. I told him that if he ever gets to where's he's in great shape, running the floor, there's no reason he wouldn't get be able to get 15 to 20 rebounds a game. He just has a knack for eating up space and he has a knack for the ball. If you get that many rebounds a game, you find yourself in double-digit scoring, too."
Cousins hopes to compete on future national teams, with an eye on the 2014 FIBA World Championships.
"If it happens, I will gladly accept," he said. "If not, I had run. I improved every day. Overall, it was a good experience. Today went well. Another competitive day. We battled Olympians."
