Auburn basketball has seen significant success in the past few seasons but what are the players from those teams up to now?
Thanks to the effort of head coach Bruce Pearl, Auburn basketball has risen from the cellar of the SEC to a legitimate contender in just a few years. All of that progress was highlighted by a Final Four appearance in 2019 and while Pearl is the engine that makes things run smoothly for Auburn, his skill as a recruiter, and therefore, the players on the court deserve just as much, if not more credit.
Auburn basketball has never been known for sending very many players to the NBA. And to be fair, the program is still working on that reputation. And while Auburn did have their first top-20 pick since Chris Morris in 1988 this past season, there are several recent Tigers that started their pro careers in other leagues across the world.
I’ll be taking a look at significant Auburn players from Pearl’s tenure as head coach and how their professional careers have gone since they left The Plains.
