UK expects big NBA scout turnout for Saturday

Update: Note at the bottom that it's the first time three general managers have attended a game in Peevy's tenure. Earlier I indicated incorrectly that it's the first time a GM has attended a UK game in Peevy's tenure, which is obviously not true. Apologies for the confusion.

Believe me when I say as many as seven or eight players on the floor could be playing in the NBA sometime in the near future, maybe even more. And that's no exaggeration.

As reported by Alan Cutler earlier this afternoon, numerous NBA scouts will be in attendance Saturday to scout the talent. To verify the numbers a bit, a total of 17 scouts and three general managers will be representing 18 different NBA teams at Saturday's game (in the best interest of all 30 NBA teams, UK cannot release the teams attending ahead of time).

DeWayne Peevy, spokesman for the UK men's basketball team, said it's the first time to his knowledge that three general managers have attended a UK basketball game since he's been here. Peevy is currently in his second year with UK.

The NBA representation is the largest turnout UK has had for a game in the last three seasons, according to previous UK seating charts. Only last year's Florida (18 scouts) and Mississippi State (15 scouts) games in Rupp Arena rivaled Saturday's expected turnout.

This scouts must look for the player that can be all around in the game. Not being a great scorer but also fits in very well to the team system.
