NBA 2K24 has plenty of game modes, and MyTEAM is one of the most popular ones. The mode underwent some huge changes this year, with the biggest one being the removal of the auction house. From now on, the mode will have a player market. With this new system, the prices of cards will be transparent, so players will know exactly how much they need to spend on each one.

There are plenty of quality cards to buy, but most of them will cost you a lot of MTs. So, it's crucial to find cheap players who possess great attributes and who can help you upgrade your squad. That's especially the case if you don’t want to purchase MT or VC, like many other NBA 2K players.

In this article, we will tell you who are the best five Budget Beasts for MyTEAM. These five players will surely help you in the early days of NBA 2K24 Season 1.

What are Budget Beasts?

MyTEAM has never been as much pay-to-win as it is now. So, if you are a "free-to-play" player, who doesn't intend to spend any more money on NBA 2K24 other than the cost of the base game, Budget Beasts cards should be your go-to.

Budget Beasts are cards that are cheaper but also possess great attributes. They are very good in-game and will provide your squad with a big quality boost.
