NBA 2K20: Release date, Cover stars, WNBA, Rookie ratings & more

The 2K franchise is back with Dwyane Wade lining up alongside NBA all-star and Laker, Anthony Davis.


Eight weeks on from the NBA Finals and we have had the thrills of the NBA Draft, looking at the names who are set to light up courts across the nation over the next few years. Trade season is in full flow, with Kevin Durant swapping the Warriors for the Nets. But what’s next?
