IU Basketball: A Comprehensive Look at Big Ten 2020-21 Rosters

With the NBA Draft early entry deadline now behind us we can begin to take a look at what the rosters will look at for the 2020-21 season.

It is still a bit too early to start naming favorites, as key stay-or-go decisions remain.  Ayo Dosunmu, Kofi Cockburn, Luka Garza, Isaiah Livers, Xavier Tillman, and Kaleb Wesson are the main Big Ten players whose NBA decisions will shape the pecking order in the league next season.

For now we take a look at each team in alphabetical order with a comprehensive review of the top returning players, incoming freshmen, transfers, exhausted eligibility and names in the NBA Draft across the league.  Players have until June 3 to withdraw their names from the 2020 NBA Draft.  You can refer to continuing updates on our IU basketball drop down menu.
