Hornets Venom GT announced its two tournament draft pool selections following the conclusion of its Online Pro-Am Tournament: BLKMANSCHESS and GlennRatty.
New to the NBA 2K League this offseason, teams can host online or offline tournaments for players to earn spots in the entry draft pool for season two (no player is guaranteed a spot in the league). Each team can distribute two spots in the entry draft pool, and teams have also added prize money as a further award to the winning team(s).
Hornets Venom GT recently held the first official tournament with draft pool implications, and with the two finals series finishing last night, the announcement, as expected, came today.
@BLKMANSCHESS1 HAS @NBA2KLeague DRAFT POOL ELIGIBILITY!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Congratulations!!!! 🎉 https://t.co/c1Hh58zZWe
BLKMANSCHESS led Overlooked to the championship on the PS4 side, beating teams like Farewell and Tunnel Vision along the way. GlennRatty did the same for his team, GodTamed, a team combined of players from two top Xbox brands in Untamed and GodSent.
@Glennratty IS IN THE @NBA2KLeague DRAFT POOL, TOO!!!! (We’re not crying, you’re crying 😭) https://t.co/1K0ljzrejW
With point guard a position of need for teams throughout the lottery portion of the entry draft, having these two floor generals in the mix will certainly interest more teams than just Hornets Venom.
Hornets Venom GT has the sixth overall pick in the 2020 NBA 2K League Entry draft and the first overall pick in the 2019 Expansion Draft, set to take place this Friday.
