If you haven't yet picked up the NBA 2K, 2K19 all is not lost this article applies to all versions of the game including previous releases.
If you have ever spent time building a roster in the GM mode you probably wondered how to build a winner long term. Here are some tips on how to do just that.
1. Any player 32 or older should be flipped for draft assets.
2. Expiring contracts should be traded for draft picks
3. If your team is not already a contender stockpile as many draft picks as possible.
1st round is preferred but 2nds also have value
4. When rebuilding invest heavily in your scouting and training staffs, train your players on high to maximize development.
Hopefully this helps you build a long term winner the next time you play NBA2K19.
