NBA 2K25 Rookies

What Can We Expect from the Face Scans and OVRs of the Rookies in NBA 2K25?

Every year, 2K Sports gives basketball fans a taste of the future by introducing some of the rookies from the upcoming NBA draft into their current NBA 2K game. This year is no different. With the NBA draft taking place on June 26, 2024, 2K is expected to follow the same pattern for NBA 2K25, which is set to release in September 2024.

Under the banner “Rookies got NEXT”, 2K has already announced a list of 2024 rookies that will be available in NBA 2K24 MyTEAM that will be included in NBA 2K25 as a pre experience. These include Matas Buzelis, Rob Dillingham, Alex Sarr, Zach Edey, Reed Sheppard, Cody Williams, Nikola Topic, Ron Holland, Justin Edwards, Kyle Flipowski, Donovan Clingan, and Stephon Castle.

However, there are several players that 2K has left out of this list, such as Zaccharie Risacher, Dalton Knecht, Devin Carter, Tidjane Salaun, Isaiah Collier, and even Bronny James. Despite the high expectations surrounding LeBron James’ son, he is expected to be chosen after the 50th pick. These players will not be available until the launch of NBA 2K25.

Predicting the 2K Ratings

While it’s hard to predict the exact numbers, we can make educated guesses based on their college performances and the buzz around them in the media. Here are the approximate OVRs for the top 5 players:

- Zaccharie Risacher: 81

- Matas Buzelis: 81

- Alex Sarr: 80

- Reed Sheppard: 79

- Stephon Castle: 79

These ratings are just predictions and the actual ratings may vary when the game is released.
