2K have announced that they’ll be partenring up with Zion Williamson in a multiyear partnership deal. For those that don’t know Williamson is the first overall selection in the 2019 NBA draft. This parternship means that Williamson will be involved in things like different game initiatives, consumer events, band creative and social activations. Williamson will also be making his video game debut in NBA 2K20 on Septembr 6, 2019.
“I’m excited to officially join Team 2K and be a part of this global phenomenon, where people around the world can play as me. I’m ready to put my imprint on basketball culture and be a part of the team that represents what’s next in the sport.”
Williamson isn’t the first NBA player to partner up with 2K and joins the likes of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Shaquille O’Neal, LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and NBA 2K20 cover stars Anthony Davis and Dwyane Wade in a list of NBA athletes to have worked with 2K over the past 20 years.
“Zion represents the best of the NBA’s up and coming talent and we are excited to welcome him to Team 2K,” said Jason Argent, Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations at NBA 2K. “For more than 20 years, NBA 2K has identified and worked with the best basketball talent in the world. It’s been incredible to witness what Zion can do on the court and we’re excited to grow with him throughout his career.”
You won’t have long to wait to shoot some hoops as Williamson as NBA 2K20 is out on September 6, 2019.
