Several Team USA basketball players, including Kings All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, reportedly visited a Rio brothel Wednesday night on accident, believing it to be a spa.

TMZ reports Cousins, the Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan, the Toronto Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan, and possibly a few others went to Termas Monte Carlo.

Once they realized their flub – Rolling Stone once called it one of the city’s high-end brothels – they quickly left, the report says. The players were seen inside the bar, but were said to have purchased nothing more than a drink.

Team USA opens play against China on Saturday at 3 p.m.
