RE: the scout who evaluated him as a g league player.
He stated that the last game was the only time he saw him. I wouldn't put a lot of stock in his opinion at this time.

Brett MacConnell tweeted a short highlight video.

Amazing to see the same moves work effectively at a higher level of competition.

Tosan Declares for NBA Draft

ESPN cut away from much of the game action to show pointless interviews and aired the 4Q on ESPN News. But when they did show Tosan, he put on defensive clinic.

By my count, he defended 8-9 shots from both guards and forwards and only allowed 1 basket while forcing 2-3 airballs. He also grabbed a bunch of nice rebounds and shared the ball on a day when no almost one else did (desperation led to a lot of bad shots).

On offense, Tosan's teammates mostly froze him out - probably since he already impressed yesterday. The 2 times they tried to feed him, the passes were way off-target. That said, Tosan had an amazing Eurostep and-1 from the corner on his only shot of the game (at least that they aired). He also made nice passes to set up teammates, even if they didn't make the shot.

The fact that Tosan is even at the NBA Combine despite a stat-light G-League camp tells me NBA personnel are indeed noticing his defense, feel for the game and crafty finishes. At the very least, he's earned himself more NBA workouts - all it takes is one team to believe.

Thx. I saw it also. The coverage was abysmal. Tosan’s general play was excellent. Even if he isn’t drafted he should be able to sign a 2 way contract
