Most NBA Executives Will Skip Scouting NCAA Tournament In-Person Due To Poor Seating

The majority of NBA executives and scouts will watch the NCAA Tournament on television rather than attempt to scout in person despite the fact that the entire three-week tournament will be held in the Indianapolis area.

The NCAA is allowing the league office to reserve one or two tickets per NBA team in two of the six venues: Lucas Oil Stadium and Bankers Life Fieldhouse. But most NBA executives have been told to expect poor seating that makes being in the arena to scout a drawback as opposed to watching on television.

Teams also will not be able to live-scout any games at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana, which is not allowing entry for the general public.

Teams could seek upper deck tickets available on the secondary market from the pool available for the general public in three of the other venues.
