• NBA Playgrounds - Roster Reveal

    Via Gamespot, Saber Interactive has released the official roster for NBA Playgrounds, coming in May to PS4, XB1, PC, & the Nintendo Switch.

    The initial roster features a bevy of current and former players. While there are currently some notable missing players such as Boston's Isaiah Thomas and Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, the game's official twitter account shared that 'hundreds more to arrive soon after' launch.

    Based upon game screenshots, it appears that users can pick two players from the entire game roster for their team, unlike previous arcade titles such as NBA JAM that required users to pick two players from one team.

    We will update this article with the game's latest roster as it becomes known/available. Continue on to see the current roster of the game sorted by team.
