Despite playing just nine games in 2017-18, Kawhi Leonard is going to be a 94 rating at launch in NBA 2k19.

Leonard, who was traded to the Raptors on Wednesday, got the screenshot and ratings reveal treatment late Wednesday night by 2K. Since the trade that sent Leonard to the north, the debate has raged on which team got the better package.

If you use 2K has a barometer it's clear that Leonard is a more complete player than DeMar DeRozan, and the ratings back that up.

Unlike LeBron James, the 2017-18 NBA season didn't do anything to DeRozan's 2K rating. The four-time All-Star will be rated 89 in the upcoming game, the same as it was when NBA 2K18 was released.

DeRozan's numbers were down slightly last season - much of which was by design - but he still averaged 23.0 points, 5.2 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game on the No. 1 seeded team in the Eastern Conference. Not only was he was named an All-Star for the fourth time in his career, he made the All-NBA Second Team for the first time in his career.

Time will tell if the move to San Antonio will be good or bad for DeRozan's 2K rating.

LeBron is the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition cover athlete releasing on Friday Sept. 7, while Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is cover athlete for the NBA 2K19 Standard Edition, releasing on Tuesday Sept. 11.
