  1. Draft Prospect Series

Each NBA 2K League team can host up to three (3) Draft Eligible tournaments in crossplay. The players on the winning team of each tournament will receive draft eligibility.

          Additionally, one player on a non-winning team per tournament can also be selected to receive a Prospect Badge and earn draft eligibility.

Dates: September 14 – October 22. Team tournament dates vary, please follow NBA 2K League on Twitter or subscribe to our newsletter to learn about upcoming tournaments.


How to Participate:

    • Players must be 18 years of age by January 1, 2024, in order to participate.
    • Players will need to follow instructions on how to sign up for each individual tournament that they wish to participate in.
