Reported NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete

Although not directly from the NBA 2K Twitter account, the places reporting Devin Booker as the NBA 2K23 cover athlete are reliable.

One location was directly from the Arizona Sports website that detailed Booker's supermax contract he's signing with the Phoenix Suns. It looks as if it was originally revealed by The Athletic's Shams Charania.

NBA 2K23 Cover teaser tweet

At the beginning of Season 8 in NBA 2K22, the NBA 2K23 cover was teased by the NBA 2K Twitter account. This also announced the game was on the way.

This was huge news because we hadn't heard anything leading up to this tweet. Now, we know the game is coming and this tweet might've hinted to the Phoenix Suns.

If you pay close attention to the image you can see some of the Phoenix Suns colors. Of course, the best player on the team is Devin Booker, so it'd make sense that he'd be the NBA 2K23 cover athlete.

In terms of the release date, we have an idea of when that will be.
