PHOENIX—When Tom Thibodeau was asked about Kings center DeMarcus Cousins disparaging one of his players, Mike Dunleavy Jr., after Monday’s loss in Sacramento, the Bulls head coach was dismissive, saying, “I could care less about what DeMarcus Cousins says.”

When Dunleavy himself was asked about Cousins’ comments, which included calling Dunleavy a “clown”—apparently Cousins has held a grudge since the two got tangled up during Dunleavy’s Milwaukee days—he was far more engaging than his coach.
