Yesterday, we learned that NBA 2K21's cover athlete for current-gen systems would be Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers. Now, 2K has revealed that the New Orleans Pelicans' Zion Williamson is the cover athlete for the next-gen, Xbox Series X version of the game.

You can watch the latest announcement video above, which again gives us some (very) brief snippets of gameplay and suggests that pre-orders will go live on July 2nd. 2K hasn't revealed anything about whether NBA 2K21 will support Smart Delivery on Xbox Series X as of yet, but we'll likely learn more tomorrow.
