This is a complex scouting formula that I developed that combines stats, advanced stats, size/athleticism,
and eye test scouting to give each prospect a number that a)predicts whether that player will be a good/quality NBA player (0 or above),
or a possible niche NBA player (below 0), and b)predicts a players two-way impact in the NBA*.
*Note: The player with the highest number isn't always the best player to take #1 overall and so on and so forth because
a player with elite scoring potential is rarer than a player with elite defensive potential (i.e. each team has 2-3 defensive stoppers,
or what they like to consider premier defensive players, and only 18 players averaged more than 20 ppg during the 2013-2014 season).
So to use this formula correctly, after this number is formulated, and it gives you a good idea of who the good/quality NBA players
will be out of the draft and which players will have to find a niche to stay in the NBA and be solid/productive players, you should
still do more eye test scouting to find the player with the most rare/valuable skills (i.e. elite offensive potential) and draft or
mock draft accordingly to what fits your team the best and/or what team needs are. Or just take the best offensive prospect with
the highest number in the vicinity.
The eye test scouting part is highly non-debatable. I use a series of questions that I give values (i.e 1-4) to players to use in
this part of the formula.
