Not sure what media you're talking about. if it's people calling our games they are saying what they need to to promote their product. Locally the press pretty much hasn't said much on it. Last years class was two projects. We got lucky with Daniels b/c of his injury situation. This years class looks better than that and we are supposed to add a shooter who they can't name b/c they have to wait till the April signing date. There just hasn't been a signing yet that has caught the fans or media's interest. Hopefully we start racking them up soon.
The people calling our games aren't going to keep the viewers interested by saying "Tulane has some good recruits coming in next year." When choosing to watch a game who cares who's going there next year, save for the recruits and their families. Yes, that's part of the media, but I've also read Guerry Smith say some good things about the recruits. One of them is one of the best players on a HS team (Hargrave Academy) that only plays elite post-grad HS teams, and is considered one of the best HS Post Grad programs in the country.
Getting back on topic: G-League players make $20-25K The salary cap for a G-league TEAM is roughly $205-210K. Frazier's chances of making an NBA roster, being picked late in the first round or second round are not good. And frankly, I agree with others that post that the NBA scouts are a lot more finicky than the talking heads with their mock drafts. Has he really shown that he's in the top 1% of players in the NCAA game? I don't think he's in the top 1% of the AAC.
