Basketball fans following the Kyrie Irving trade saga will have a sigh of relief before the launch of NBA Live 18, as EA Sports is giving players the chance to get a feel for the new Celtics and Cavaliers rosters in a new update to the playable demo that was released last month on PS4 and Xbox One.

The new update provides us with the new look Cleveland Cavs, with Isaiah Thomas (above,) and Jae Crowder joining LeBron James, Kevin Love and former Knick Derrick Rose. In addition, the demo update adds the Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward-led Boston Celtics, as well as the Houston Rockets and Live Run, a mode which allows for Level 20 players to play virtual pickup basketball at any of the indoor and outdoor courts in the game, with various restrictions and gameplay changes.
