2020 NBA Draft: Tier Breakdown As We Enter August

By Max Feldman

The last time FOG broke down the tiers heading into the 2020 NBA Draft was the first week of May. While there has not been much new production on the court, the summer has allowed for a deeper dive into what the previous season showed. Not too much at the top has changed besides a few stir ups, but as we move downwards some new faces are certainly popping up. The entire tier breakdown is determined via the FOG August Big Board, set to drop in the first week of the upcoming month!
