It's currently not possible to change or remap the keys in NBA 2K16. I contacted 2K Sports regarding this issue and below is their response.

“The keyboard is a rather diverse tool to work with, and in this light I can totally understand the needs to make it as personalized as possible. Unfortunately, customization is not an available feature as of right now. We keep gathering feedback to be able to forward to our development team so they can try to work a solution for this matter.”
