2K Sports has begun releasing some player ratings for their next installment of the NBA 2K series, "NBA 2K19." The game is set to be released on September 11. According to US Gamer, though, if the special 20th Anniversary Edition of the game is purchased, the buyer will have access to the game four days earlier.

Thus far, just seven players have seen what their ratings will be when the game is released, but many more are sure to come over the next few weeks. Keep track of future player ratings by following NBA2K on Twitter or Instagram.

Here are the seven players that have seen their ratings revealed thus far, and what their rating was when "NBA2K18" was released.

As Bleacher Report mentioned, the top three finishers in last season's Rookie of the Year voting all have identical ratings to start off.

LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers - 98

  • Last year's 2K rating: 98

After another four seasons in his second tenure with the Cavaliers, James joined his third NBA team, the Lakers. The 33-year-old played in all 82 games for the first time in his career last season and averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 9.1 assists.

Kawhi Leonard, Toronto Raptors - 94

  • Last year's 2K rating: 95

Leonard was traded to the Raptors on Wednesday after seven seasons with the Spurs. He played in only nine games in 2017-18 as a hamstring injury left him sidelined for most of the season.

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves - 91

  • Last year’s 2K rating: 91

The first overall pick in 2015, the former Rookie of the Year was named to his first All-Star team last season. The 22-year-old has yet to miss a game in his three-year career.

DeMar DeRozan, San Antonio Spurs - 89

  • Last year's 2K rating: 89

The all-time leading scorer in Raptors history, DeRozan’s nine-year tenure with Toronto came to an end on Wednesday in the deal that netted the Raptors Kawhi Leonard.

DeRozan, who turns 29 on August 7, was named to his third straight All-Star team and was named Second Team All-NBA last season.

Donovan Mitchell, Utah Jazz - 87

  • Last year's 2K rating: 75

Drafted 13th overall last season, Mitchell finished as the runner-up for Rookie of the Year. Turning 22 on September 7, he led all first-year players with a 20.5 scoring average.

Ben Simmons, Philadelphia 76ers - 87

  • Last year's rating: 79

The reigning Rookie of the Year, Simmons was an all-around productive player after sitting out all of the 2016-17 season. The 22-year-old recorded 12 triple-doubles, third most in the league only behind Russell Westbrook and LeBron James.

Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics - 87

  • Last year's rating: 77

The 20-year-old Tatum finished third in Rookie of the Year voting and averaged 18.5 points in postseason play as the Celtics fell just one game shy of the NBA Finals. He was selected third overall in last year’s draft.
