Do you need contracts for MyTeam in NBA 2K23?

In the past, players have needed to rely heavily on contracts for MyTeam. Each NBA player card in MyTeam, whether it was a Ruby or a Galaxy Opal, had a contract length for a number of games. Once the length of that particular contract had been fulfilled, the card could not be used until a new contract was applied to that card. And, past NBA 2K games featured different contract tiers, with rarer tiers yielding higher contract lengths.
