SALT LAKE CITY – Every year, NBA 2K releases its player ratings before the season, causing a stir amongst NBA players and fans.
Some players couldn’t care less while others use their rating as motivation.
Here is how NBA 2K rates members of the Utah Jazz.

The reigning Most Improved Player received a nice boost to his rating heading into the 2023-24 season. The Marksman slots in at an 86, eight points higher than his rating to start last year. Lauri Markkanen is tied with Anthony Edwards for the lowest-rated All-Star from last season. For comparison, some players with similar ratings include Karl Anthony-Towns (86), Mikal Bridges (87), Jamal Murray (88), and De’Aaron Fox (88).
Kessler had an even bigger jump than Markkanen. His day one rating in NBA 2K24 will be an 83 which is 12 points higher than it was to start his rookie campaign. For comparison, some players with similar ratings include Victor Wembanyama (84), Paolo Banchero (84), Draymond Green (83), and Jordan Poole (82).

Three Potential Starters Sneak Into 80 Overall Club
Collin Sexton, Jordan Clarkson, and John Collins all slide in at 80 overall in NBA 2K24.
Clarkson and Sexton received upgrades from their ratings last year. Clarkson jumped up three and Sexton jumped up by two.
Collins fell from an 83 to an 80 following a down year with the Hawks in 2022-23.

Outside of Victor Wembanyama who received a rookie record of 84 overall, the 2023 NBA Draft class didn’t receive a lot of love from 2K. This held true for the Jazz’s 9th pick Taylor Hendricks. The 6-foot-10 forward out of UCF received a rating of 73. For comparison, other rookie ratings include Brandon Miller (78), Scoot Henderson (78), Anthony Black (73), and Bilal Coulibaly (73).

George already had fans calling him the steal of the draft after lighting up the Summer League in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. NBA 2K is clearly waiting to go that far, giving the Baylor guard a rating of 72. George correctly predicted his rating on the first guess.

The 28th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft said that he was a big fan of the NBA 2K franchise and has played the game for years. For a late first-round pick, Sensabaugh received a respectable rating of 71. For the most part, 2K waits until rookies show what they can do across an entire 82-game season before letting them reach the 80-overall threshold.
