In this episode, I chat with Pete Philo. Pete is a former NBA Scouting Director for the Timberwolves and Pacers, as well as a scout for the Mavericks. Currently, he runs TPG Sports Group, which runs Virtual Scout School, Pro Scout School, and Sports Tank.

We chat about how he got into the scouting industry, then get into some scouting stories. What is the most important part of scouting? How does one go about gathering scouting information overseas? What does he remember about the time he spent with Michael Beasley? What was it like to work for David Kahn? What does he consider to be his biggest hits and misses? How did the Mavericks end up taking Pavel Podkolzine? Then, we delve into what Pete's doing now, and what he does with Scout School.
