Auburn basketball heads into the 2020-21 season with a very new lineup and that often means new leaders.
Just like the start of last season, the Auburn Tigers are heading into the year after losing a large amount of talent. From last year’s squad, Austin Wiley, Samir Doughty, Danjel Purifoy, J’Von McCormick have all graduated while freshman star Isaac Okoro is a likely lottery pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
Other than losing all five starters from last season, the team will also be without sixth-man Anfernee McLemore, who enjoyed a successful four-year career with the Tigers.
The Tigers never got a chance to defend their Final Four appearance from 2018-19 but the loss of talent leaves plenty of room for new players to step up. Whether it be bench players from last season or incoming recruits, Auburn will look like a very new team in 2020.
While it’s probably too early to predict who the team’s leaders will be next season, we do have some idea on the talent on the roster and who are the favorites to play big minutes.
