No. The scouts evaluate talent. Being seen on TV has nothing to do with that.
Do the fans or the scouting department/GM make the decisions.
Or more accurately ... Scouts evaluate talent and talent sparkles especially brightly in a quality conference game or in the NCAA tournament with millions of people watching.

Nice 1st half run by Brissett. Played 9 mins scoring 5 points with 3 rebs and 1 ast. Was active and played with a lot of energy. He’s got a chance of being stashed in the G league IMO.
I must have jinxed him. Took a couple of bad shots in the 3rd qtr and didn’t have a point or rebound. My bad.

Not a bad 4th qtr. only played a few mins so he didn’t get a lot of chances but made his only shot, a dunk off an inbounds play. Had a steal, reb and block. He’s not one of the starters but unlike battle, white and Richardson he’s part of the regular rotation.

Nice game. 18pts and 7rebs. Played on the wing but drive a lot and made some nice cuts to get a few dunks. Defensively he played on the perimeter 80% of the time and often was guarding the guards. Showed some versatility which the announcers said he was displaying a nice inside and outside game. I think that’s their last summer league game.

batman /robin dynamics. i think with battle gone oshae would have been forced to step up his game.
next years draft would possibly been kinder. never know. pure speculation. but 1 more year IMO.
Next year's draft will be tougher. First year when all the HS kids can go in, I believe. Probably will have 20 HS players drafted in the 2 rounds.....

Then that group would be well advised to stay in college. Every player’s goal, so they say, is to play in the NBA. I do not agree that the G League is a better option than college. It is improving but it is still not as good of a training ground. No offense to him at all, he was a decent player for us, but John Gillon has better numbers in the G League than he did at SU.
Might be because he is now a better player.

You (and others) miss the point. They DON'T WANT to be in college.
