Hornets Venom GT and Gen.G were announced this offseason as the two newest teams of the NBA 2K League.
That means there’s an expansion draft to be had. A number of talented players are available for both teams, who have the option of selecting up to three players to jumpstart their roster before the 2020 entry draft.
We’re here to track the results live and provide the full results as the selections are made. Hornets Venom GT won the draft lottery earlier this month, giving them the honors of the first selection of the draft.
Expansion Draft Results
- Type – Hornets Venom GT
Not a big surprise with the first pick for Charlotte, who takes the defensive stalwart, unprotected by Warriors Gaming Squad following season two. The center was taken with the first pick in the fourth round of the season one entry draft and protected after the inaugural season.
- Turnupdefense – Gen.G
The season two champion Turnupdefense goes second overall in the expansion draft. A tough loss for T-Wolves Gaming, who were forced to leave the lockdown defender unprotected with the bunches of talent present on their roster, but a fine start for the Shanghai-based Gen.G.
- ZDS – Gen.G
Another trade at the third pick in the expansion draft, mirroring last year when T-Wolves Gaming shipped oLarry with the third pick to Cavs Legion GC in exchange for Hood. The sharpshooter ZDS will head back to 76ers GC at an undisclosed price.
- Strainer – Hornets Venom GT
Season two third-round pick Strainer heads to Charlotte to duo with Type. The sharpshooter was the odd man out on a talented Cavs Legion GC roster following offseason protections.
- Mo – Hornets Venom GT
Season two first-round pick Mo heads to Charlotte as well. Mo has the potential to play either off-ball or at point guard, much like Strainer, giving the Hornets plenty of versatility heading into the 2020 entry draft.
- Pass – Gen.G
Gen.G elects to pass on its final pick, opting to instead pick up a second-round pick in the 2020 entry draft. That leaves just Turnupdefense on the roster with a myriad of picks after the ZDS trade goes through.
