Kings-Pelicans DeMarcus Cousins trade not possible in NBA 2K17

Tim and Sid break down DeMarcus Cousins getting traded to the Pelicans and debate who is to blame for the Kings failure since drafting Boogie seven seasons ago.

By now you likely know all about the DeMarcus Cousins trade to the New Orleans Pelicans.

Universally critiqued as being a terrible deal for the Sacramento Kings, it’s been compared to the kind of one-sided fleece jobs like Pau Gasol going to the Lakers or Vince Carter to the Nets.

But really now, how bad is this trade?

Well, according to NBA 2K17, the trade isn’t just bad, it shouldn’t even be possible.

Bryan Wiedey, a sports video game analyst, decided to attempt the trade in 2K Sports’ latest basketball offering and discovered that virtual Vlade Divac, is nothing like his real life counter-part and absolutely won’t do the deal.

No word if Virtual Vlade got a better deal a couple days ago and is looking to circle back on that as of yet.
