Last Tuesday (October 5th) was Pro Day. I just watched the report on Hogs Plus (apologies if this has already been reported). Absolutely fascinating.
So, Coach and his staff brainstormed what they would want to see if they were personally evaluating for an NBA team. Then they reached out to all 30 NBA teams and asked what specifically do you want to see in a workout? They then took all that info and constructed a 105 minute practice for the respective scouts in attendance. (The report didn’t specify how many teams were represented last Tuesday).
These players then worked out for and got exposed to multiple scouts simultaneously (I realize NBA team reps visit practice from time to time, but this was constructed with them in mind). Now they have opportunity to get feedback from specific teams.
I’d imagine other coaches with (or even without) NBA backgrounds have similar pro days. But it’s nice to see what we have on our side these days.
I’ll be surprised if Coach Musselman doesn’t eventually bring a 2nd natty banner to BWA.
