"NBA 2K17," the upcoming basketball simulation video game developed by Visual Concepts and published by 2K Sports will have 21 European club teams.

Though previous installments have included EuroLeague teams, this is the first time that the game will feature all the 16 teams in the league. This addition will spice up the game as NBA 2K players may not be aware of the names of players in the EuroLeague.

"Having all the EuroLeague teams and their stars in NBA2K17 makes this a special edition for fans, who we are sure will enjoy what our clubs and stars bring to the game," said Roser Queralto, Chief Business Development Officer at EuroLeague.

Here is the list of the European teams:

  1. ALBA Berlin
  2. Anadolu Efes Istanbul
  3. Brose Bamberg
  4. Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade
  5. CSKA Moscow
  6. Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul
  7. EA7 Emporio Armani Milan
  8. FC Barcelona Lassa
  9. FC Bayern Munich
  10. Fenerbahce Istanbul
  11. Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul
  12. Laboral Kutxa Vitoria Gasteiz
  13. Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv
  14. Olympiacos Piraeus
  15. Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens
  16. Ratiopharm Ulm
  17. Real Madrid
  18. Unicaja Malaga
  19. Unics Kazan
  20. Valencia Basket
  21. Zalgiris Kaunas

The additional five teams have been added from EuroCup Basketball, known as the 7DAYS EuroCup for sponsorship reasons. It is the second-tier level transnational professional basketball competition in Europe and one level below the EuroLeague.

Previously, 2K had revealed a list of 50 soundtracks that will be featured in the game. Theses tracks were curated by Imagine Dragons, Noah "40" Shebib and Grimes.

"NBA 2K17" is rumoured to feature a new international mode. No details of the particular mode are currently available.

Meanwhile, 2K has unveiled the official screenshot of Minnesota Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns. Earlier, 2K had unveiled similar screenshots of Paul George, Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler.
