NBA 2K Esports Teams Announced For League's First Season

The NBA and 2K have announced the esports teams participating in the NBA 2K esports league's inaugural 2018 season.

Earlier this year the league announced that it was starting an esports league using the NBA 2K video game franchise, with eventual plans for all 30 NBA teams to participate with their own five-person team.

Although more details regarding the league are still to come, the Philadelphia 76ers have naturally announced that its team will draw from Team Dignitas – an esports franchise it purchased last year – which already fields six esports teams.


Our Take
I'll be curious how the NBA teams themselves highlight their esports teams, whether at home games at the arena or even during telecasts of NBA games.
