Bradley Beal, the consensus top shooting guard in the fast-approaching NBA Draft, will only hold private workouts with the top-four teams, making his stop in Cleveland this Saturday.
Drawing comparisons to players like New Orleans Hornets shooting guard Eric Gordon and the future Hall of Fame Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen, Beal — who measured in north of the 6-foot-3-inch listing which had cast doubt on his upside at the next level — boasts not only a catch-and-shoot game, but has increasingly become more dynamic in terms of his ability to get to the rim as well as rebound the basketball.
As pointed out by Terry Pluto this past weekend, Beal (a 6-foot-4-inch guard) averaged more rebounds (6.7 per game) than the 6-foot-8-inch small forward in Harrison Barnes.
Shooting guard is undeniably a position of need for the Cleveland Cavaliers, owners of the fourth-overall selection. Beal, being the top-rated player at his position, will undoubtedly draw heavy consideration from Cavs general manager Chris Grant.
