Welcome to the UnCommenTerry! This is episode 4 and we’re coming at you this week with Insight. Insight is defined as, “an instance of apprehending the true nature of a thing, especially through intuitive understanding”. And when it comes to our next guest he knows a thing or two about insight, especially when it comes to identifying talent on the basketball court. He’s a former NBA Front Office staffer and Scout for the Portland Trail Blazers and Charlotte Hornets, and is the CEO and Founder of Pro Insight…I’m talking about Matt McKay Jr.
We’re going to check in with Matt as he breaks down Pro Insight and the purpose behind it, we get his take on the process of scouting college basketball prospects post Pandemic, specifically at Section 7 in Phoenix, AZ and USA Basketball U19 training camp in Fort Worth, TX - and he gives Insight on a couple under the radar class of 2022 prospects for us to keep an eye on.
And the road Matt traveled to the NBA and now scouting blue chip recruits had quite a few stops along the way - so we take a look at the unique journey he took from King’s High School in North Seattle to Pro Insight.
And for those that think future NBA Draft picks only have to check the boxes from a physical standpoint, Matt gives us Insight as to what NBA Scouts really look for as they cross the country trying to get the scoop on potential NBA draft picks before teams make a big financial investment.
Get out your notebook and media guide, and dust off that Press Pass as we take a closer look and get some Pro Insight from Matt McKay Jr.
