SGO Weekly: Madden NFL 21 & More!
NBA 2K League tryout process for Season 4
NBA 2K League announced a new tryout process for the league’s fourth season. This new process takes over in 2021. The new format includes more than 35 Pro-Am tournaments hosted by NBA 2K League teams. These will be a part of the “NBA 2K League Draft Prospect Series,” a League‑hosted event featuring winning teams from these tournaments, and a first‑of‑its‑kind NBA 2K League Combine. The League‑hosted winners’ event and the Combine will include only players who are eligible for the 2021 NBA 2K League Draft. This new format provides NBA 2K League teams an opportunity to evaluate players well before the Draft.
Beginning this month through early December, NBA 2K League teams can host up to two NBA 2K21 Pro-Am tournaments. That’s one on the PlayStation 4 and one on the Xbox One. Winning teams from each tournament will advance to a winners’ event in December. In January, the NBA 2K League Draft Prospect Series will move to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. Players on the winning team from each team‑hosted tournament—on both current‑generation consoles and next‑generation consoles—will be made eligible for the 2021 NBA 2K League Draft. NBA 2K League teams will also be able to select one player not on the winning team of each tournament to receive a “Prospect Badge” and become Draft-eligible. Players who earn eligibility for the 2021 NBA 2K League Draft through NBA 2K League Draft Prospect Series tournaments are not eligible to compete in subsequent tournaments during the Series.
