Kevin Durant, Donovan Mitchell, DeMarcus Cousins, and Andre Drummond will be among the participants of the NBA2K tournament that the league will be holding, according to Yahoo Sports. 12 more NBA stars are expected to play in the event.

The NBA will be creating a 10-day tournament in light of the league’s hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will be a players-exclusive tournament that will be broadcasted on ESPN. There are some details to be finalized, Yahoo also reports.

The tournament is projected to begin on Friday (3/4).

Mitchell and Durant have been among the NBA players who tested positive for coronavirus. Mitchell has recovered, as has his teammate Rudy Gobert, the first NBAer who was found to be carrying the virus, leading to the league’s suspension.
