With the release of NBA 2K22, many players everywhere are wondering how exactly they are able to switch teams in the beloved MyCareer mode. Unfortunately, when looking at the previous year’s titles, the process of switching teams has gotten much more time-consuming with 2K22, but that is not to say it is easy and doable. This year, trading is tied in with the actual story of MyCareer, so it is not as simple as pressing a button to get your trade. Here is exactly how you can request to have your player traded over to a brand new team.
Wait for the Manager Cutscene
Tied in with the story, players will view a cutscene with their player talking about their future with the team with the manager. Here, there is a specific dialogue option players need to select in order to initiate trades. When the manager asks if the player is looking to pursue a trade, choose the latter option saying “Yes. I want a fresh start somewhere else”. After selecting this option, players have initiated the beginning of the trade, clearing this step.
Select Three Teams
A little while after the first cutscene and response above, the player will get called into the office by their agent, discussing trade options. This is the most important step. You will now be able to select three teams you wish to be traded to, and your agent will get to work on processing that request. At this point, you will be asked how quickly you would like to be traded. This option does not affect where your player will end up, so feel free to choose what you believe is right for you. There is no guarantee that you make your first choice team for a trade, but rest assured as you are guaranteed to make one of the three teams you selected.
Once you have followed the steps above, you should be traded within the next few games, all depending on what time frame you chose! Be sure to check out all of our NBA 2K22 guides for the best tips for this year’s title.
