2020 NBA Draft: Post Draft Value Charts

Contributions made by Max Feldman and Aditya Fuldeore

As expected, the 2020 NBA Draft went haywire. While the variance chart below suggests that chaos, Isaac Okoro and Kira Lewis Jr were the only two prospects that I felt were selected far too early within the lottery. Udoka Azubuike, Isaiah Stewart and Vernon Carey Jr were large value standouts as well, but this was expected. I have consistently harped on my lack of support for a low post big man with a lack of floor stretching flashes. Aleksej Pokusevski was an expected standout as well because of my lean towards the floor rather than ceiling side of his massive potential. In different, I did expect a few prospects to get drafted much earlier who I was low on, but fell to close to FOG’s value instead. Those in this category would be Grant Riller, RJ Hampton and Cassius Stanley. The bottom chart shows the organizations that hit it big in terms value from FOG’s perspective.
