A much anticipated roster update is now available for NBA Live 15. The update reflects some of the numerous recent trades and roster shake-ups such as Josh Smith to Houston, JR Smith and Iman Shumpert to Cleveland, and Dion Waiters to Oklahoma City. (Timofey Mozgov is still with Denver and not yet with the Cavs.) The update also updates Practice Mode rosters.
EA SPORTS has posted a blog and spreadsheet
detailing the rating changes as part of this update.
- Mozgov switched automatically (no roster update/download necessary) to Cleveland after playing with the Cavaliers. If Synergy/NBA Live can get players to automatically appear on new teams within an hour of playing, many players will be happy. The next roster 'fix' that needs to occur is for Inactive players (injured, DNP previous night, etc.) to appear so users may insert them into the line-up for Play Now games. Long-term, these issues only reinforce the need for NBA Live to include full roster editing and sharing abilities.
The roster improvements made are still not as fast as their competitor NBA 2K which is now updating rosters manually each night with the latest signing & trades, but it is a major start and help keep Live competitive on this front.
