New Retiree Vaults & Roster Updates
A total of 38 new retirees have been added to new Retiree Vaults (Retiree Vaults 4 & 5). A lot of the cyberfaces and player info come from old versions of NBA 2K, as well as the Ultimate Base Roster. So huge credits to HAWK23 for the addition of the new retiree vault players! Other than that, we have your basic NBA roster update with all of the new transactions since the last update (June 19, 2016). Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jerian Grant are now members of the Chicago Bulls. George Hill is the new point guard for the Utah Jazz. Marco Belinelli now plays for the Charlotte Hornets. Derrick Rose & Justin Holiday join the New York Knicks. Serge Ibaka and Jodie Meeks are now part of the Orlando Magic. Thaddeus Young and Jeff Teague have joined the Indiana Pacers. Cameron Bairstow is now a member of the Detroit Pistons. Both Victor Oladipo and Ersan Ilyasova now join the Oklahoma City Thunder.
All of the new coaching changes for the new NBA season have also been implemented. David Fizdale now coaches the Memphis Grizzlies. Kenny Atkinson is the new coach for the Brooklyn Nets. Dave Joerger will coach the Sacramento Kings. Nate McMillan now coaches the Indiana Pacers. Former Assistant Coach Luke Walton is now the new Head Coach for the Los Angeles Lakers. Tom Thibodeau returns to head coaching, this time for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Frank Vogel is the new coach for the Orlando Magic and Scott Brooks is back as the new head coach for the Washington Wizards.
2016-2017 NBA Rookies!
All of the rookies drafted in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft are now added to the roster! The only exceptions to this are Juan Hernangomez, Guerschon Yabusele, and Ante Zizic that will not be playing this season due to their contracts overseas. Thus, they are added to Overseas Vault 10 instead. All of the rookies are made by byronray and Monzki15. They deserve most, if not all of the credit here. Hener2K provided the cyberfaces for both Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram while I assigned the players to their respective teams. Rookies drafted in the first round are the only players with guaranteed contracts so we chose to add them first. Future updates will include the second rounders once the contracts have been finalized for next season.
The draft order for MyCareer has already been updated, featuring the 2016 NBA Draft Class. However, the Rookie Showcase does not feature the rookies yet. All of the contracts have also not been adjusted yet to the new salary cap as of yet, because the new contracts have to be finalized before we proceed.
New Jerseys by MVL & Shoes by JPeB
The Utah Jazz and the Sacramento Kings now have their new jerseys provided by MVL. The Kings now have their new Home, Away, Alternate and Back in Black jerseys while the Jazz have their Home, Away, Alternate and Pride sleeved jerseys.

Future updates will include the Free Agency updates, while roster updates near the opening night of the next season will feature more accurate contracts as well. All of the undrafted players that were signed, second-rounders that were signed as well as the players who were drafted last year but will play this season will also be added. As of now, the retiree vaults and overseas vaults are pretty much complete and are not expected to receive any further updates. The rookies currently do not have portraits and will receive new temporary portraits when the Universal Portrait Project update arrives.
