NBA 2K League news is here.

The NBA 2K League Qualifier will take place in January. It is set to be the first aspect of the qualifying process as hopefuls will need to meet the standards to advance to the second stage of tryouts in February.

Here’s some key information about the qualifying process that was shared with me by NBA 2K on Reddit, where Managing Director Brendan Donohue conducted an Ask Me Anything session. In a previous conversation last week, Donohue also revealed a few tidbits of information about the actual in-season gameplay.

That info is also below.

When: January 1-31. Age Requirements: Must be 18 Access: Qualifying stage is open to anyone around the world who has a copy of NBA 2K18 on PS4 or Xbox One. Application: Players must complete an online application by January 31 Participation: Players can compete as a walk-on, part of a team or a combination of the two. Players will be using their existing MyPlayers for this stage of the qualifying process. Performance Standards: Players need to win 50 games in NBA 2K18’s Pro-Am mode. Winning more than 50 games doesn’t increase a player’s standing. After the top 85 players are identified, 85 players will be placed in the draft pool. Donohue says: “We’ll be capturing deep analytics on all players to ensure the best will qualify for the draft pool.” Draft Info: March 2018 Teams: Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, New York
