DeMarcus Cousins has been productive since the Kings replaced Paul Westphal with Keith Smart.

Cousins has also been mentored by Chris Webber, who played seven seasons with the Kings.

“I have the utmost respect for C-Web, he’s a real person,’’ Cousins said. “He just gives me advice, tells me how to handle situations. He went through similar situations so of course he has advice for me. I guess you can say a big brother looking over me.’’
