Even NBA 2K17 thinks Kings trade of DeMarcus Cousins is bad

If you follow sports even a little bit, you heard this weekend that the NBA’s Sacramento Kings traded their star player, Demarcus Cousins, to the New Orleans Pelicans for jack shit. Like, a few decent players and draft picks but few tangible assets in return.

You’re saying, why do I care? This is a videogame website? Because even NBA 2K17, the videogame, will not allow the Sacramento Kings to trade Cousins for so little. The game literally blocks you and says it is not in the best interests of the Kings franchise.

Of course you can override this but it goes to show that even a videogame, which isn’t sentient, knows this was a shitty shitty deal for the Kings.
