27 NBA scouts were at Lamelo Ball’s game

How's that for great exposure for NBL players. His game highlights continue to trend and go viral on YouTube,

How do you know there were 27?

Surely some wouldn't want people to recognise them as scouts?

I hope you’re not trusting Ball Inc to be accurate in this.

I thought the young bloke looked the goods tbh. Just out of interest, what does '27 nba teams' generally look like? Does that mean a bunch of people flew in for the weekend? Or do they have local resources they can call upon to do their scouting?

Givony from ESPN/DraftExpress/whatever mentioned being in Tasmania for it.

Givony attends virtually every major tournament, camp, workout, Combine or other type of gathering featuring present or future NBA prospects, whether in the US or worldwide...

Olgun is the only scout worthy of the word scout!

It won't be the last time we see nba scouts in Australian this year. I’m curious to see if the nba scouts pick up other players from the NBL at the end of the season. That would help recruit better players for the NBL in the future plus more next stars

If RJ and Melo are both likely to be lottery picks, why would teams that are definitely not gonna be in the lottery send scouts?

Because they might trade into the lottery. Because the kids might get hurt or underperform and drop to the mid-first. Because the teams that are definitely not going to be in the lottery might have a star get injured, or pissed off and demand a trade, and end up in the lottery.

Oiled this be to gauge a baseline, with the plan being to track progress throughout the season? It would give them a guide to how they develop playing in a pro environment with men.

Rubbish thread? There's 27 NBA scouts watching NBL preseason games and you consider that rubbish. You’re probably the same person who was trashing the NBL getting 1 million views on twitter and YouTube.

This stuff is great for our league.

Word is that Lamelo is covering his cost on jersey sales alone. Don't forget he sold $60,000 worth of jerseys in 24hrs.

So let's say hypethetically that Lamelo is on $1,000,000

Are you saying that revenue, after costs of materials for those jerseys, the profit is the same as Lamelo's wage?

Well hypothetically if he's on a billion dollars, they'd have to sell a lot of jerseys i reckon

I spoke to a couple of NBA scouts and one guy associated with Didi.
The Draft eExpress guy was there as well.
I was very surprised at how well the tournament was run.
Nothing was a problem and from what I saw everything was spot on.
I didnt see any players complaining and anything that was asked for was obtained.
Incidentally the 27 NBA scouts that were indeed there were well looked after with nice gift packs on arrival and they were hosted by Big Joe who did an outstanding job.
Great to catch up with Leroy, Ray Ray, Cal, Stiffie, and so many more.
The Kings owner was in attendance, and Larry and Will Hodgman were literally front row centre yesterday.
Spoke to the Premier on the way out and he said he thoroughly enjoyed the games.
Good to hear and onwards and upwards. More negotiating to go and probably by Christams time there might be a positive outcome.

They were there to see Ball, not because they're impressed by the NBL.

Far from it. I spoke to several scouts and they were all looking at the quality of the players in the NBL. Including the imports and locals.
I saw La Melo play and his stats looked good. Early on in the game he turned the ball over, made sloppy passes and made poor decisions on his early shots.
NBA? On that performance no.
Better players there for sure.

Are scouts are paid fees for scouting? Or are they employees who have their travel paid by NBA teams, as well as a salary package.

Either way, the best value for money is in finding the best prospects wherever they go. If I were a scout watching a game, and my main focus was being outshone by another young player, I'd be looking closely at them both, and reporting on both.

It's not the first time nba scouts have come to Australia to watch NBL games it’s been happening for years just more intensified this year. The scouts don’t have tunnel vision they can see just fine, that includes all the other players and coaches e.g. Will Weaver
Lamelo and Rj will make the draft let’s not focus on what they play like now let’s look at what they have become at the end of the NBL season.

You're right Anon, scouts have been coming here for years. In fact, NBA players have been coming here for close to 30 years and playing in the NBL. The world has known about the NBL for a very long time. I even remember SHAQ attending a game here in the mid 90s.

I'm not sure why some are going gaga all of a sudden like OMG the US and the world are finally paying attention to australian basketball. It's been happening forever.

It looks like the local Australian media has noticed Lamelo with news stories from fox sports and news.com today about him being number 1 nba draft pick, soon the flood gates will open (probably after the football finals) lol
