On July 25, 2K Sports announced a new NBA 2K20 demo coming next month for fans. Players can try the game out early with the new MyPLAYER builder and start hitting the court two weeks before the game launches.

The MyPLAYER builder will let fans test out styles and configurations in order to best customize your playing style ahead of time. Best of all, after you spend that time customizing and figuring out what works best for you, you don't lose that progress. Instead, your choices from the demo can be carried over to the full game.
