DeMarcus Cousins, George Karl in Better Place

Boogie and veteran coach seem to be on the same page after rumored rift.

Published August 5, 2015

In late June, DeMarcus Cousins took to his Twitter account, addressing trade rumors with three emojis — a snake between grass as a reference to a snake in the grass.

Many deferred that Cousins was referring to Sacramento Kings coach George Karl and that the relationship between the All-Star center and veteran coach were extremely frigid.

Well, nearly two months later, the two seem to be in a better place, as Boogie showed with the Instagram shot on Tuesday.

Give them something to talk about....💯

The challenge now will be turning the Kings into a winner in the Western Conference. The franchise finished with a 29-53 record last season, despite Cousins averaging a ridiculous 24.1 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game.

He'll be aided in the 2015-16 season with the recent additions of point guards Rajon Rondo and Seth Curry and shooting guard Marco Belinelli.

Can Karl and Cousins being on the same page help turn the Kings into a winner?
