Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The start of the 2016-17 NBA season is still several weeks away for the Los Angeles Lakers. Even though it’ll still be quite a while until Lakers fans can watch their favorite team back on the basketball floor, the release of NBA 2K17 is right around the corner with player ratings starting to surface.

D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, and Larry Nance Jr. tweeted out their NBA 2K17 ratings earlier this week. Julius Randle is the latest Laker to reveal his rating for the upcoming game on Twitter with the third-year forward coming in at 77 overall:

So far, Russell is the highest rated player on the team at 78. Clarkson was given the same rating as Randle at 77 while Larry Nance Jr. came in at 75. Rookies Brandon Ingram and Ivica Zubac have yet to disclose their ratings on Twitter.

Veteran Lou Williams and newcomer Luol Deng could be rated as high or higher than Russell with Deng sporting a 78 rating in NBA 2K16 last year and Williams coming in at 80. As expected, Kobe Bryant was the highest rated player on the team at 85.

The trailer for NBA 2K17 recently surfaced ahead of player ratings gradually coming out through players’ Twitter accounts. Bryant and Russell are featured prominently in the trailer with Ingram making an appearance as well.

NBA 2K17 will be released on Sept. 20 with Bryant as the cover athlete for the Legends Edition and Indiana Pacers superstar Paul George gracing the cover of the Standard Edition. If you pre-order NBA 2K17, you’ll have early access on Sept. 16.
