Following a weekend doubleheader in New York City, Kings Guard will head back to the Big Apple to take part in the mid-season NBA 2K League tournament known as THE TURN.
This tournament is the second of three being held by the 2K League this season, but will have a slightly different format than the first TIPOFF event. Each team in THE TURN is seeded according to record and the tournament will be a single elimination format.
Kings Guard has secured the eighth seed and will take on Magic Gaming in the first round. Should Sactown come out on top, it will advance to play the winner of the top-seeded Blazers Gaming and their opponent that will be determined by a play-in game between Raptors Uprising GC and Pacers Gaming. This will mark Sactown’s first matchup with Magic Gaming, as both teams come into THE TURN with a 3-2 record on the regular season.
All 17 teams will be competing for a $150,000 prize pool in the tournament, with the winning team taking home a $75,000 share.
Kings Guard’s first contest will take place on Friday, June 8 at 7 pm PT and can be viewed live on Twitch at Twitch.tv/KingsGuardGG.
The full bracket for THE TURN can be viewed below.
