Could sobey attract NBA interest?

I just tuned in to today's game whilst the broadcasters were interviewing an Indiana Pacers scout.

I didn't hear if he said who he was there to watch. Presumably Ferguson, but with more eyes on sobey could he also gain interest? Fast becoming the complete player

Wright will probably help him get into a training camp as he did with Sam Mackinnon but I think that will be the end of the road. Still will be a valuable experience.

With his size, Sobey would need to play point the NBA? Very much an uphill battle.

Pacers projected to draft where T Ferg will be available, makes sense a scout was out here.

Randle is too old and needs the ball a lot to be effective

I could see him getting a summer league spot somewhere similar to what Goulding did in the past, would be a longshot to get signed anywhere

What role would Sobey play in the NBA? Would his athleticism be enough in a league where a lot of the guards are much bigger, stronger and faster than him? There's already a white chocolate on the draft board for 2017, Grayson Allen and he's projected in mid 30s I think. Not much love for those, they prefer fruit and nuts over there.

Sobey could play in the NBA sure but will he? I doubt it. Sobey reminds me of a footy player playing basketball, he doesn't have that robotic quality a lot of basketballers have and just puts his head down and breaks down defences.

There are worse players in the NBA we all know that but what could Sobey bring to an NBA team that would in their mind see them take a gamble on him? Not much I would've thought in a league full of athleticism.

Like to see him back at Ballarat Miners. Was a solid starter here in SEABL and his vertical surprised a number of bigger wings.

I don't think it is a matter of could he attract NBA interest...he already is according to reports. Questions should be, can he crack the NBA?

Sobey is way too soft for the NBA , this diving all over the floor shizz every time he is fouled would not be tolerated in the big league . Just look at the foul yesterday by Akil Mitchell and also on thursday by Rhys Martin as perfect examples.Now Europe though they love that.

Ras Posse, don't think you have watched too many NBA games. NBA players have made an art form of drawing fouls and exaggerating contact. Just youtube 'NBA flops' and tell me Sobey doesn't fit right in!

On a serious note, Sobey is only just slightly older than college returnees, has above average athleticism and an improving shot. He has the same sort of shot as a Goulding or C Webster of making a spot, with the disadvantage being the absence of international exposure.

If he doesn't make the NBA its because he was in hospital the other day. Did anyone hear about that? It was the reason the Sixers lost. Not making excuses for them but he was in hospital so I guess it was an excuse. No one was meant to know but luckily someone told us that he was in hospital. But don't make a big thing about it because it wasn't an excuse. The hospital thing, I mean. Do they have hospitals in the NBA? Hope so, cos Sobey sometimes secretly goes to them.

XY - wouldn't the lack of international exposure for Sobey be due to the fact that he hasn't played well enough until now to even be in the discussion for Boomer selection? (honestly I haven't checked thoroughly whether he's been to a camp before or played, just don't recall it...)

He's become a very good NBL player now, and I reckon his season with Warnambool last year helped with his development in terms of taking responsibility, etc. I'm just not sure I see NBA potential there..

I love the fact that he is in the conversation for NBA recruiting, I can't see why he wouldn't be looked at, he is showing extraordinary skill and tenacity, he is obviously an impact player and if he is coach-able he will be an NBA prospect.

I would love to see him there - kind of like a future Joe Ingles kind of player who gives you a steady hard-working team player with a few shots, assists, rebounds and steals.

However, I still think he's hitting form too late for him to get a gig. Look how long it took Jingles to get there.
