what exactly do NBA GMs did before/during draft day ?
 
NBA GMs and executives to be exact
anybody have a clue ?
are they reviewing players videos ? take a look at player's bio and health issues ? or they seek scouts insight ?
or is there any youtube videos or documentaries like "inside the draft day event" or sumthin like that ?
i'm curious what the situation like when the player they're after is being taken by other teams :D

consult with staff on who they like. invite players to work out.

trade to make trades, more consulting on who they want, invite more players to work out, try to trade again, watch some tape.

do more consulting and so on.

I would love to see a documentary that showed us just this. GMs on the phone, making deals, haggling, etc. Watching tape, talking to scouts.. everything.

I wanna know how GMs come to their decision. It would shut up a lot of people who think they'd be the best GM ever.

to bad that won't happen.

would be great to watch, but it would give away to much detail about how teams draft process works.

or, you can just watch Moneyball. pretty much everything a GM does was shown in that movie.
