NBA 2K League Announces 102 Players for Inagural Season
The NBA 2K League today announced the pool of 102 players who will become the competitive gaming league’s first professionals when the inaugural season tips off in May.
Each of the league’s 17 teams will select six players at the 2018 NBA 2K League Draft on Wednesday, April 4 (1 p.m. ET) at The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. Teams will select one player at each position (point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, center) over the first five rounds before selecting a second player at the position of their choice in the sixth round.
Mavs Gaming will have the No. 1 overall pick. The full draft order is available here.
The process of selecting gamers for the final player pool began with a qualifier in January that yielded 72,000 players and a combine in February. Following the combine, the NBA 2K League identified the top 250 players and held live, one-on-one interviews with each player. After the interviews, all player information was evaluated by a selection committee and used to determine the 102 players eligible to be drafted.
Below are the 102 players who will be selected in the NBA 2K League Draft.
