I would love for you to explain how their current frontcourt is "garbage".
Kings have no direction, and no veterans to take Cousins in and show him how to be professional. Their frontcourt consists of Jason Thompson, a guy with no offensive game, that had essentially played himself out of the starting lineup by the end of last season.... and Sammy Dalembert... a guy known for having his own mental and maturity issues, who plays unmotivated and uninspired basketball half the time.
But, like I said, Cousins will immediately be the best frontcourt scorer on the team, so his numbers should be decent.
