2K releases NBA 2K21 MyTeam Next Packs on Draft Day
On Thursday evening, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York was the host venue once again for the NBA Draft. The 2021 top pick went to the Detroit Pistons, who opted to take the top talent available, Oklahoma State guard Cade Cunningham. Some have called him one of the most polished players since 2K22 cover star Luka Doncic.
The second pick went to the Houston Rockets, a team that has struggled since James Harden’s departure. They added talented guard Jalen Green from the NBA G League Ignite to their roster, hoping he’ll improve their success.
Other top picks in the NBA’s 2021 Draft included USC star Evan Mobley, Gonzaga’s Jalen Suggs, and Jonathan Kuminga of the Congo. These players and more are featured inside NBA 2K21 MyTeam Next packs. Check out the new trailer below with in-game footage of the stars.
In addition to the new rookies pictured above, NEXT packs also have some former top picks including Anthony Edwards, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Zion Williamson. Their cards are of the G.O.A.T. or Invincible variety.
