After selling out the first year of Pro Scout School with over 300 attendees, 2015 is on track to be even bigger and better. “People don’t get to see the inner workings of an NBA front office too often. I think this conference does a great job of exposing people to that and showing them what goes into constructing an NBA team,” said Phoenix Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough about Pro Scout School.
The 2015 speakers were recently released and have a combined 291 years of NBA and management experience. ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla will be emceeing the event and the speakers consist of Kevin Pritchard, David Blatt, Chad Ford, Chris Alpert, Matt Doherty and many more NBA coaches, scouts and basketball executives. The full list of speakers can be seen at http://tpgsportsgroup.com/events/tpg-pro-scout-school/#speak.
In addition to panel discussions covering every aspect of the basketball industry with unbelievable content, the unique 2015 edition will include added breakout sessions and a “GM Experience” for an even more intimate learning experience. The exclusive GM Experience will offer an opportunity for 20 attendees to learn and connect with NBA management in a private session. “Pro Scout School is an absolute must-attend for anyone trying to break into scouting or the NBA. There’s no better way to learn from and directly connect with NBA personnel. The panels are insightful and interactive and the networking opportunity with experienced NBA executives is well worth the price alone. I can honestly say that without Pro Scout School and the help of TPG, I’m very likely not in the position I am today,” said Nick Bartlett (Basketball Operations for the Portland Trailblazers).
