Brooklyn Nets are one of the new franchises coming to the NBA 2K League

​The NBA 2K League is about to end its inaugural season and start its second. But before things tip off in the ​eSports’ premier basketball gaming competition, four more franchises are officially taking the plunge and getting in on the action.

With Wednesday’s announcement, there are only nine NBA franchises without an NBA 2K League team: Chicago Bulls, Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, New Orleans Pelicans and Denver Nuggets.

The names and logos for the Lakers, Nets, Hawks and Wolves affiliates should be revealed soon.

With the Brooklyn Nets now part of the 2K League , you will have your first real rivalry between the Nets and the Knicks. Since both teams are based in New York, those players will make endless opportunities to play against one another on or offline.
