After announcing Damian Lillard as the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 on current-gen consoles Tuesday, 2K Games revealed today that New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson will grace the cover of NBA 2K21 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Williamson was the first overall pick in the 2019 draft and has played in just 19 games in his NBA career. However, the 19-year-old stood out as a national attraction in his one year at Duke University for his powerful dunks and for tearing apart a pair of Nikes during a game.
A trailer for NBA 2K21 featuring Zion Williamson can be viewed below.
As part of the partnership between NBA 2K21 and Williamson, 2K Games announced 2K Foundations will work with Williamson to renovate a local community site in New Orleans. 2K Foundations is 2K’s initiative to support underserved communities.
A third cover athlete as well as a release date and pricing details for NBA 2K21 are expected to be announced on Thursday.
