The San Antonio Spurs’ entire regular season roster now has confirmed ratings on NBA 2k20 ahead of the much-anticipated September 6th release date.
Many San Antonio Spurs fans were anxious to see how their squad would look like in the most recent edition of the NBA 2K series.
Unfortunately, none of the Spurs’ player ratings were mentioned in the early release from 2K that detailed the top 20 players in the game and the top five rookies.
The first batch of confirmed San Antonio Spurs ratings, courtesy of 2kratings.com, included what 2K probably projects to be their starting five next season.
Power Forward LaMarcus Aldridge: 87 Overall
Shooting Guard DeMar DeRozan: 87 Overall
Point Guard Dejounte Murray: 78 Overall
Point Guard Derrick White: 78 Overall
Center Jakob Poltl: 77 Overall

2kratings.com has now updated their site with confirmed ratings for every player who has a real shot to make the 15-man roster this year.
Small Forward Rudy Gay: 81 Overall
Small Forward DeMarre Carroll: 77 Overall
Shooting Guard Bryn Forbes: 75 Overall
Point Guard Patty Mills: 75 Overall
Shooting Guard Marco Belinelli: 75 Overall
Power Forward Trey Lyles: 75 Overall
Shooting Guard Lonnie Walker: 73 Overall
Power Forward Luka Samanic: 72 Overall
Small Forward Keldon Johnson: 72 Overall
Power Forward Chimezie Metu: 71 Overall
Power Forward Drew Eubanks: 69 Overall
It’s not surprising to see many of the Spurs’ players rated in the mid-to-high 70’s as they look to have one of the deepest rosters in the league.
One player who could produce much more than his rating suggests this season is Lonnie Walker. He has much to prove at the NBA level, which is why 2K was comfortable keeping him at 73 overall, but Walker’s Summer League performance and the recent history of Spurs guards taking major leaps in year two has him set up for a breakout year.
Walker’s rating should be much more than one point better than the pair of first round rookies in San Antonio.
Another change I would’ve made would be ranking Drew Eubanks ahead of Chimezie Metu at the bottom of the roster. Metu has a bit more pedigree than Eubanks, but there’s no doubt that Eubanks outplayed Chimezie in Austin last season as the Oregon State big man was among the G League’s most productive players.

The strength of this squad, in real life and in video games, will be their depth and that’s on display in these ratings with 11 players at 75 or above overall with a trio of young players that could outplay their initial rating.
