    The long-anticipated trade of DeMarcus Cousins finally materialized last night with a deal that sends him and Omri Casspi to the New Orleans Pelicans. In return the Sacramento Kings receive 2017 1st and 2nd round picks, Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, and Langston Galloway. The Kings organization is being ridiculed for the deal and NBA 2K17 agrees that they got a poor return for their superstar who is ranked as the 7th best player in the league.

    Another update is now available to download in NBA 2K17 and becomes the ninth post-release patch of substance this year. For whatever reason on PS4 the updates have required a massive download of 7.6GB on each occasion. Considering four of them have been rolled out in the last 10 days, those who own the game on that system have been forced to download over 30GB of data over that short stretch of time which is problematic to say the least. This latest patch deals with matchmaking issues in...
