The NBA 2K League is getting ready to wrap up its inaugural campaign, as the quarterfinals and semifinals of its postseason are this weekend with the finals slated to occur on August 25. But before we get to the point where a champion is crowned, the league is already looking towards its 2019 campaign.

On Wednesday morning, the NBA announced that the 2K League will add four new teams next season. Currently, 17 NBA teams have affiliated 2K squads, and in 2019, the Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, and Minnesota Timberwolves will stretch that number to 21. The news was announced on the league’s official Twitter page.

“Welcoming these four world-class organizations and their passionate fanbases to the NBA 2K League is an exciting moment not only for the league, but for the entire 2K community,” NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue said in a statement. “From their innovative spirit to their global reach, we know each of these teams will be a tremendous addition, and we are thrilled that this growth offers the opportunity for new players, coaches and support staff to join the league.”

Adam Silver told the press back when the league first launched that the NBA was approaching the 2K League as its fourth league, along with the NBA, WNBA, and G League. While there’s still plenty of room for it to grow, it is cool that the 2K League is making a point to expand and bring more teams into the fold as it wraps up its first year.
