Kevin Durant, Andre Drummond, Donovan Mitchell to compete in NBA 2K Tournament
The NBA 2K20 Tournament is bound to make waves during a relatively silent sports season. Some of the best real-life NBA players, including Kevin Durant, Andre Drummond, and Donovan Mitchell will participate in the video game tournament, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
The league is still finalizing some of the details of this tournament, hoping to launch it on Friday and expecting for it to last 10 days.
Other players like Los Angeles Lakers injured center DeMarcus Cousins will get the chance to get back on the court, virtually, to show off their skills on the sticks — now that the 2019-20 season has been brought to a halt.
ESPN’s The Boardroom revealed the 16 participants, which will be seeded by players’ 2K ratings. Other players like Trae Young, Hassan Whiteside, Devin Booker, Zach LaVine, and others will participate in the tournament.

The tournament will offer some much-needed competition and a true distraction from the devastation of the novel coronavirus, which has forced most Americans into a state of isolation.
Durant, Drummond, Mitchell, and Cousins are among some of the best NBA players that have taken to playing the game during these three weeks of relative inactivity.
