Scott Wissel Rumors
“What can you say? I’ve never seen an organization like this one,” said Wissel, who has been in the NBA 17 years and worked for Memphis, Sacramento, Detroit, and Milwaukee before the Clippers. “I don’t know why they do this. I just don’t know why. There’s no ethical basis for them to do what they’re doing in this situation.”
While Wissel nor Holloway wanted to discuss the exact figure they believe they are and were owed, league sources said an internal NBA survey done three years ago indicated the approximate league-wide average salary for scouts at between $65,000 and $75,000 annually with the range between approximately $30,000 to $150,000. Depending on the organization for which a scout worked, those with longer tenures and who handled the league-wide reports alone have traditionally been the highest paid.
