Darius Garland Cracks Top 5 Among Rookies as NBA 2K20 Ratings Get Released

1 Min Read

Ahead of the release of the popular video game, NBA 2K20, the player ratings for the top five rookies have been announced by 2K Sports.

Cleveland Cavaliers rookie guard Darius Garland cracked the list, landing at No. 5 among rookies in the game’s player rankings system.

Garland has a 77 rating which ties him with fellow rookie De’Andre Hunter, although the Cavs’ prized freshman is ranked a notch lower on the list.

Interestingly, 2K Sports ranked the rookies based on where they were selected in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Garland averaged 16.2 points on 53.7 percent field-goal shooting during his lone collegiate season in Vanderbilt. A meniscus injury in his left knee ended his college career after only five games.

But the Cavaliers saw a lot of potential in the 6-foot-2 guard when they drafted him, and apparently, the makers of NBA 2K20 agree with their selection. The game is set for release on Sept. 6 of this year.
