Patrick Beverley of the LA Clippers will participate in the NBA’s 2K tournament on Friday which will take place on ESPN according to Bev himself.

Patrick Beverley will represent the LA Clippers in ESPN’s 2K tournament on Friday. This news comes from a message from Bev himself.

First reported by Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, the league is launching the tournament on Friday, April 3 on ESPN. The tournament will feature 16 players from around the league including Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz and DeMarcus Cousins.

The tournament will reportedly air on ESPN and will last 10 days. Players have been gaming a lot during the NBA’s hiatus and the league along with ESPN have been looking for ways to get some action on television for the fans.

This tournament has been suggested by many fans and it’s great to see it moving forward. Haynes reports a few details still have to be worked out.

Beverley’s inclusion makes sense. Known for his trash-talking on the court, we have to assume he approaches gaming with the same “can’t lose” attitude. We already know that he deems himself the best Call of Duty: Warzone player on the Clippers, so it’s not a stretch to believe he thinks he is also the team’s best 2K player.

In addition to this news about the tournament, ESPN also announced they will be moving up the release of The Last Dance to April 19. This ten-part documentary follows the Chicago Bulls during their 1997-98 season and shows behind the scenes footage that has yet to be seen by the public.

While we don’t have full details yet on the event, more will surely unfold as the week goes on. No, it’s not real NBA basketball but at least it’s something. Clipper Nation can see their team represented by one of their favorite players. We’ll take what we can get.
