Information about NBA 2K17 continues to drip feed to millions of starving fans just long enough to keep us all from dying of starvation.
We’ve had little more to go on than leaked footage and screenshots, but now we finally have some ratings – as revealed by the players themselves via twitter.
Malik Beasley – Denver Nuggets: 69 Overall
Beasley was picked up by the Denver Nuggets at 19th pick. The 19 year-old shooting guard will be good for franchise mode, but little else. Not who we’re here for. Next
Sean Kilpatrick Jr – Brooklyn Nets: 72 Overall
Another Shooting guard on the list, Sean Kilpatrick Jr entered the NBA undrafted and has very few games under his belt. Last season’s 13.8 ppg from 23 games was enough to see him into the 70s
Justin Anderson – Dallas Mavericks: 73 Overall
Third shooting guard here, but can do a job as small forward, Justin Andson was the 21st draft pick in the 2015 draft. He played 55 games last season, however all but 9 were from the bench. Most of his stats we better in the playoffs than the regular season, which is a good sign.
Jonas Jerebko – Boston Celtics: 73 Overall
Jerebko has enjoyed a reasonably long career, but receives a reasonably low rating. The big swede has seven NBA seasons under his belt, but never averaged more than 10 ppg. But having averaged at least 15 minutes per game all but one season, Jerebko is an ever-present player and decidedly middle of the road.
Joel Embiid – Philadelphia 76rs: 77 Overall
The 7 foot-tall Center was picked third overall in the 2014 draft. He since suffered major injury setbacks and his rating has stagnated.
Ben Simmons – Piladelphia 76rs: 79 Overall
The 1st draft pick of the 2016 draft is seen as a potential savior for the Piladelphia 76rs and the Australian national team, both of whom have dwelled in mediocrity seemingly forever. Simmons has all the physical tools to become a superstar, and will start out his 2K career as an already dangerous player. That’s before we even mention the beast he is set to become in Franchise.
D’angelo Russell – Los Angeles Lakers: 79 Overall
The first of the Lakers’ two 2nd overall draft picks in a row, the 20 year-old Point Guard will be a focal point as they try to reclaim their dominance in the NBA. Russell played 80 games last year, starting 48, with 13.2 ppg and 3.3 apg.
Andre Drummond – Detroit Pistons: 87 Overall
The 6’11 Center was the 9th overall pick in the 2012 draft. At 23 with 4 full NBA seasons behind him, Drummond is the perfect combination of good years behind him and good years ahead. His last season was dominant, with 16.2 ppg and a league-leading 14.8 rebounds per game.
Karl-Anthony Towns – Minnesota Timberwolves: 88 Overall
1st overall pick of the 2015 draft, Towns went on to have a stellar 2015-16 season and end up winning rookie of the year. The 7-foot center started 82 games, scored over 18 ppg in his rookie season and over 10 rebounds a game. He is a big reason many are tipping the Timberwolves to win the NBA within five years.
