This year's NBA draft, which was delayed by several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is now behind us, and 2K Sports have updated NBA 2K21's rosters to reflect each team's draft picks. \n \nGiven that the new roster additions are rookies, the developers don't really have a track record to go on, as it's still unknown how this year's rookie class will fare when the NBA's regular season begins next month, and during a recent interview with Hoops Hype, 2K producer Mike Stauffer explained how they decide an overall rating for the game's newly added rookies. \n“Every rating is a projection and when there is less sample size, it is going to be trickier to nail those projections,” said Stauffer. “Even general managers and coaches have trouble figuring out who the best player to take is when it comes to the draft. \n \n“During a year like this one, where the sample size is smaller, there is going to be a lot more variability and it is going to be tougher for the statistics to show the full picture. We are trying to make the ratings as accurate as possible without having the full picture like we usually do.” \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=ctuRS2upbbU \n \nBelow is a list of the ratings for all the rookies who were taken in the first round of this year's NBA draft. \n \n \tAnthony Edwards - 3-Level-Scorer - 77 overall. \n \tJames Wiseman - Glass Cleaner - 77 overall. \n \tLaMelo Ball - Playmaker - 77 overall. \n \tOnyeka Okongwu - Finisher - 76 overall. \n \tObi Toppin - Interior Finisher - 76 overall. \n \tPatrick Williams - Shot Creator - 75 overall. \n \tIsaac Okoro - Floor-Spacing Slasher - 75 overall. \n \tDeni Avdija - Three-Level-Scorer - 75 overall. \n \tKillian Hayes - Playmaker - 74 overall. \n \tDevin Vassell - 3-Point Specialist - 74 overall. \n \tTyrese Haliburton - Offense Initiator - 74 overall. \n \tPrecious Achiuwa - Finisher - 74 overall. \n \tJalen Smith - Three-Level Scorer - 73 overall. \n \tKira Lewis Jr - Offense Initiator - 73 overall. \n \tAaron Nesmith - 3-Point Specialist - 72 overall. \n \tCole Anthony - Offense Initiator - 72 overall. \n \tIsaiah Stewart - Interior Big - 72 overall. \n \tAleksej Pokusevski - Three-Level Scorer - 72 overall. \n \tJosh Green - Floor-Spacing Slasher - 72 overall. \n \tSaddiq Bey - Shot Creator - 72 overall. \n \tTyrese Maxey - Inside-Out Playmaker - 72 overall. \n \tRJ Hampton - Offense Initiator - 72 overall. \n \tJaden McDaniels - Three-Level Scorer - 72 overall. \n \tZeke Nnaji - Finisher - 71 overall. \n \tLeandro Bolmaro - Slashing Playmaker - 71 overall. \n \tImmanuel Quickley - Shot Creator - 71 overall. \n \tUdoka Azubuike - Finisher - 71 overall. \n \tMalachi Flynn - Well-Rounded Point - 71 overall. \n \tPayton Pritchard - Offense-Minded Point - 70 overall. \n \tDesmond Bane - Offense-Minded Guard - 70 overall. \n \nAlso, given that we're in the middle of the NBA's free agency period, the rosters for both the current and next-gen versions of 2K21 will continue to be updated to reflect all of the latest transactions.
