Bulls' Zach LaVine to participate in players-only NBA2K tournament on ESPN


Monday night, Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports reported that the NBA and ESPN were partnering up to broadcast an NBA2K tournament this coming Friday.

That news appears to be official now, via a post from The Boardroom's (an ESPN talkshow hosted by Kevin Durant) official Twitter account:

Most notably: Zach LaVine is in! He'll enter the tourney as a No. 7 seed (typical) and take on 10-seeded Deandre Ayton in the first round.

Kevin Durant, Deivn Booker, Trae Young and Patrick Beverly (Chicago, stand up) are also set to participate, in terms of big-name players.

The Boardroom's tweet says the tournament is "starting" this Friday, so it's possible this is a multi-night affair. We'll take anything we can get at this point.
