The NBA players' association is continuing its appeal on behalf of Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins even after he has served his suspension.
The league suspended Cousins two games for confronting San Antonio announcer Sean Elliott in a ``hostile manner.'' The exchange followed the Spurs' 97-86 victory in Sacramento on Friday night.
The union said in a statement Wednesday that the two-game suspension was ``excessive and unwarranted.'' Cousins missed losses at the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday and at home against Portland on Tuesday.
Cousins can't get the games back but is hoping to recoup his pay for each game. He lost about $70,500 of his $3.9 million annual salary.
In a statement through his agent, Cousins apologized for the ``distraction'' but said he believes the penalty was unjustified.
