Welcome to the #2KLGrind…76ers Gaming Club (GC) edition.
From October through early December, as part of the league’s NBA 2KL Draft Prospect Series, NBA 2K League teams will host more than 35 NBA 2K21 Pro-Am tournaments on Sony PlayStation 4 or Microsoft Xbox One – the start of the league’s new tryout process for Season 4.
It’s all about the tournaments.
The 76ers GC Draft Eligible Tournament Benefiting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) will take place from Saturday, Nov. 14 – Saturday, Nov. 28 and will continue to fuel promising research and innovative care that will help children in the Philadelphia area and around the world.

The tournament will feature five players per team and each round will be 48 hours in duration. All proceeds support CHOP, where each player can direct their $10 entry fee to any area of the hospital.
“I am thrilled about the new NBA 2KL Draft Prospect series, specifically our draft-eligible tournament and continuing to support the innovative work of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia,” said 76ers GC Head Coach Jeff Terrell. “It’s a unique way to give the players in such a talented draft class the chance to control their own destiny for Season 4. Our 76ers GC tournament is a great opportunity for the NBA 2K community to compete for draft eligibility while also supporting a great cause.”
The 2019 NBA 2K League Coach of the Year, Terrell leads a 76ers GC squad that has made its mark on the league through a culture of hard work – and winning. The winningest team in NBA 2K League history boasts a league-best 59 wins with a .621 winning percentage through three seasons.
76ers GC has even bigger goals for Season 4, and the draft is among the first steps in the process.
More from the NBA 2KL Draft Prospect Series Hub page: In January, following the release of Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation consoles, the NBA 2K League Draft Prospect Series will continue with up to eight NBA 2K League teams hosting NBA 2K21 Pro-Am tournaments on Sony PlayStation 5 or Microsoft Xbox Series X. All players on the winning team from each team-hosted tournament—on both current generation consoles and next-generation consoles will be made eligible for the 2021 NBA 2K League Draft. NBA 2K League teams will also be able to select one player not on the winning team of each tournament they host to receive a “Prospect Badge” and become Draft-eligible.
