Some of the most notable players saw their ratings go up. Jimmy Butler and Julius Randle had their ratings go up by a single point. Russell Westbrook, who is formerly the MVP of the league, also received a slight boost and now sits at an 87 overall rating.

But a litany of players saw their own values drop just a bit. Paul George, Ben Simmons, CJ McCollum, Bam Adebayo, and Ja Morant all saw their overall scores dip by a single point. Kart-Anthony Towns was then the recipient of the biggest nerf on this patch and had his own rating drop from an 89 to an 87.

NBA Trade Deadline shakes up multiple teams

While this new Roster Update did adjust the Overall Rating for several players, it’s also changed the landscape of quite a few teams.

Chicago Bulls

It’ll add Nikola Vucevic to the Chicago Bulls, where the 87-rated forward becomes the second-best player in the starting five. He joins fellow 2021 All-Star Zach Lavine (88 OVR) as the Bulls hope they can make a push for the playoffs this season.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat added former NBA All-Star Victor Oladipo to their lineup so he can provide additional scoring and experience for the postseason. Oladipo carries just an 81 OVR in the game but joins a lineup that boasts Jimmy Butler (91 OVR), Bam Adebayo (87 OVR), and Kendrick Nunn (76 OVR). It’s believed this will be a trial run for the Heat with Oladipo who can decide whether or not they want to pay to keep him on beyond this season.

Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets were one of the top teams in the Western Conference last season and returned a talented roster for 2021. However, they made a move ahead of the deadline to add Aaron Gordon from the Orlando Magic. Not only can he provide additional scoring, but could help defend stars like LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, and Paul George come playoff time.

Gordon is currently an 80 overall and the NBA 2K21 roster update gave Denver a serious boost. Their starting five currently include Jamal Murray, Will Barton, Michael Porter Jr., and Nikola Jokic. In addition to adding the former Slam Dunk contest star, they also picked up big man JaVale McGee.

Boston Celtics

Meanwhile, the Eastern Conference looked like it might be the Boston Celtics for many seasons, but things haven’t worked out for their roster. They’re still amongst a team that will factor into the postseason, though.

Before the 2021 trade deadline, they were able to add the experienced Evan Fournier to their roster. He brings an 83 overall rating to the starting five which features Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Tristan Thompson.
