Coach2K announced today that the C2K Pacers selected their summer league roster. He also announced a 25 game summer league schedule that takes the squad overseas to 12 different countries.
"After we got eliminated by the Raptors in the first round of the C2K Playoffs, what we learned was that we have to get better. We didn't practice enough last year or learn enough about our personnel.
I got together with the coaching staff and we had a long discussion about what Coach2K could do this year to help people learn more about NBA2K.
One of those ideas was to compete in a summer league from start to finish while showing some of the behind the scenes preparations needed to improve your game over the summer before NBA2K16 comes out and then carry that over into next season's game.
We are excited to take our guys overseas, take in some sites and see these Euroleague teams. I bet that I, along with a lot of other NBA2K fans, don't really know much about these teams. It'll be good work for us, good to get some exposure for the Euroleague and good for C2K Pacer basketball," said Coach2K.
The roster will be a duplicate of the one the real life Pacers will use in the Orlando Summer League. It will be led by starter Solomon Hill and the Pacers first and second round draft picks - Myles Turner and Joe Young.
Also on the roster are guards, Jarell Eddie, Mantas Kainietis, Davonte Lacy, Trent Lockett, Jon Octeus; forwards, James Nunnally, Romero Osby, Christian Watford, Shayne Whittington; and centers Arinze Onuaku and Matt Stainbrook.
As part of the announcement, he also took the time to thank those that created the summer league roster. The Gaming Guru built the summer league roster which he based off the roster that EmbraceThaPace put together with the recent NBA draft picks.
Through a cooperative partnership with the Euroleague, the C2K Pacers will play all 25 Euroleague teams. The trip will start in Spain, then head to France, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Russian, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Serbia and then finally conclude in Italy.
