I would like to know how come NBA team pay so much money to scouts?

My problem with the scouts is that they go out to see these players and when they get drafted it's always a 80% chance of failured. I do think that the NBA teams should real considered the problem out there. It's easy to see when a player will make it or not. I just don't get it why this has become a science to NBA professionals.
