Buy a basketball t-shirt from our eBay store.

Proceeds go to promoting Aussie Hoops.

We know only Hoops Tragics listen to this show, so for something different we sit down with who spent 13 years as an NBA scout with the Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks.

Pete goes into great detail as to how you can become an NBA scout and what NBA scouts really have to do.

Tune in for a great learning experience about NBA scouting. Topics on the show include;

  • Update on Larry Kestelman's plan to purchase the WNBL and the Harlem Globetrotters (2:00)
  • Update on what Australian's are doing well as NBA scouts right today (11:30)
  • What skills do people need to become an NBA scout (14:00)
  • Why did Brad Newley never make it to the NBA? (18:30)
  • How has the G-League changed how players make the NBA from outside the college system (20:30)
  • What does the average day of an NBA scout look like? (22:30)
  • Who was a guy you scouted that you got totally wrong (27:00)
  • Terrance Ferguson's NBL experiment and how that's viewed by NBA scouts (32:00)
  • How did Isaiah Thomas get drafted with the last pick of the 2011 NBA Draft and the curious case of Tanguy Ngombo (38:00)
  • How do NBA scouts get it so wrong sometimes, are there common mistakes being made? (48:00) What did Pete learn scouting the Australian Boomers during the 2012 Olympics (58:00)
  • What do NBA scouts think of the NBL (1:00:00) Did you ever scout an Aussie who didn't make the NBA you thought should have? (1:11:00)
