While we wait for more news on NBA 2K18 and NBA Live 18, a lot of gamers are eager to play with updated rosters for NBA 2K17. Fortunately, dedicated members of our modding community are helping out in that regard, with detailed 2017 offseason roster updates for the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.
As we’ve covered in recent episodes of the NLSC Podcast, a team of modders including I Hate Mondays, bluejaybrandon, Kevmire, JEDL, and rovert22044 have been working on the NLSC Realistic Community Roster. The project consists of both final 2017 season rosters and updated 2018 season rosters, with the 2017 roster being released last week. Both roster updates include re-worked player ratings, Badges, rotations, and more, for the most realistic experience possible. Slider settings and compatible 2017 Draft Classes are also available. You’ll find the roster shared under the name “NLSC 16/17”, by “I Hate Mondays”. For more information, and download links for the compatible art updates, see this thread. The team is working on getting the 2018 roster updates out as soon as possible.
For those who’d like to play with updated rosters on PC right now, Shuajota has been working on the DNA Ultimate Roster, which includes offseason transactions and the new rookies. 2017 D-League rosters have also been added. You can find the roster shared as “DNA Ultimate Roster 17-18”, by “KraZStaR”. More information, previews, and download links for the art updates can be found in this thread.
If you’re looking for roster updates for the PlayStation 4 version of NBA 2K17, SkillzFromThe6 is hard at work on his offseason roster. His updates are coming through very quickly, as you can see from the previews being posted in this thread. If you’d like to download the roster, search for “Offseason Roster 2K17”, by “SkillazKill”.
Please note that all roster updates need to be downloaded through the in-game sharing functionality rather than the old-fashioned method, which is why I wanted to post a bulletin highlighting these recent releases. Please also note that we do not support the pirated version of the game in this community, and requesting help with it is grounds for an immediate permanent ban in the Forum. Our policy on this is clear and well-established, so if need be, be sure to brush up on our rules here.
Beyond roster updates, other people are making some great mods including historical and concept rosters, realistic faces, body models, shoes, jerseys, and courts, and more. Stay tuned for more File Additions bulletins, and be sure to keep an eye on the NBA 2K17 Releases & Previews section of the NLSC Forum. A huge thank you to all the modders who have taken the time to create these great mods and updates for their fellow basketball gamers!
