With the offseason now officially underway, players are beginning to sign with teams, trades are going through (with the exception of yesterday’s controversial situation) and rookies are officially joining the teams that drafted them. The NBA is back!
This also means that the first official roster updates for NBA 2K12 will be coming soon, quite possibly this weekend according to a Tweet by Ronnie 2K. The updates will not contain any gameplay or game mode fixes – that update will be coming later – but will include rookies that have signed contracts and all other player movement that has been made official as of the time an update is finalised and released. As noted in Ronnie’s Tweet, Ron Artest’s name will also be changed to Metta World Peace with the first update.
In the meantime, you can check out a screenshot of Kyrie Irving in a Cavaliers uniform over on the official NBA 2K Facebook page that has been posted as a teaser for the updates.
