I wouldn't think the game day worker part wouldn't be an issue. I'd think most of the scoreboard systems they have now have the shot clock on there so it'd just be one additional thing the person working it would have to make sure to do.

In a lot of cases I agree. Scoreboards that are more robust, for example ones that have player points and fouls, are fairly complex and it takes quite a bit of time for an operator to master operation. Even large schools usually only have one or two operators accomplished enough to use all functions.

I wouldn't think all the mechanics necessary for college & pro hoops would be necessary.

I've seen some pretty cash-poor school districts with pretty fancy scoreboards, so getting a shot clock doesn't seem too big a deal to me. That's why you have boosters and sell sweatshirts and popcorn.

I would also think there are plenty of corporate/business sponsorship opportunities for such a thing.

Pepsi and Coke used to provide a lot of scoreboards for exclusivity. I think this is happening a lot less than it used to.
