NBA 2K23 teams that you should consider rebuilding

Detroit Pistons

Statistic Description
OVR 83
Offensive Rating 84
Defensive Rating 82
MVP Cade Cunningham
Supporting MVP Jaden Ivey
Saddiq Bey
1st Draft Picks If kept 1-18 then one.
If 19-3 then it goes to New York.

This team has young rising stars like Cunningham and Saddiq Dey who have reached their best potential. Overall, the teams need some work on the consistency of their shots and some reinforcement in defense. Both issues can be solved with a little effort.

Houston Rockets

Statistic Description
OVR 85
Offensive Rating 78
Defensive Rating 82
MVP Jalen Green
Supporting MVP Jabari Smith Jr
Kevin Porter Jr
1st Draft Picks Two in total. One is own and the other is by swapping with Brooklyn.

This team offers plenty of players with scoring and shooting potential. Hence, it’s the most fun to build in our opinion. You will lose Christian Woods, but you still have a stable anchor like Jalen Green. Also, you can get Alperen Sengun who has lots of untapped potentials.

Orlando Magic

Statistic Description
OVR 84
Offensive Rating 85
Defensive Rating 84
MVP Wendell Carter Jr
Supporting MVP Franz Wagner
Mo Bamba
1st Draft Picks If Chicago’s pick falls 5-30 then obtains one

Overall, this team is consistent, but you must take a shot at younger players to reach its maximum potential.

San Antonio Spurs

Statistic Description
OVR 81
Offensive Rating 83
Defensive Rating 79
MVP Wendell Carter Jr
Supporting MVP Jakob Poeltl
Devin Vassell
1st Draft Picks If Charlotte’s pick falls 17-30 then obtains one.

This team needs a rebuild after trading away its best player Jejounte Murray to Atlanta. There are plenty of good players to fish for.

One of them is Doug McDermott. He is one of the best players in NBA 2k23 with defensive skills. His contract will expire in 2 years, after which he will be available for a rebuild. His playstyle compliments the team as he is a pure shooter who can make shots from deep on the court.

Utah Jazz

Statistic Description
OVR 83
Offensive Rating 83
Defensive Rating 80
MVP Mike Conley
Supporting MVP Bojan Bogdanović
Collin Sexton
1st Draft Picks Three in total, the least favorable of Brooklyn’s, Huston’s, and Philadelphia’s.

While this team is now a mere husk of its previous self, it’s still led by legends like Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanović. Hence there is still a lot of potential for a firm rebuild.
