Beal Works To Improve Handle In Preparation For Draft
Bradley Beal is working to polish his ball-handling skills in preparation for the NBA draft.
“I believe that I’m going to surprise teams because the main focus of my whole pre-draft workout has been my ball handling,” Beal said. “They say that I’m a little undersized for 2-guard, so I may have to play some point guard eventually. I think that a lot of teams are going to be shocked by my ball handling.”
Beal, who averaged 14.8 points on 44.5 percent shooting, also said he has focused on scoring off the dribble -- as well as the repertoire of his shooting.
“I’m looking to really focus on creating my own shot offensively,” Beal said. “Just beating guys off of the dribble, then finishing with a floater or pull-up in the lane. Just have to continue having high IQ for the game, focus in on ball handling, and work on creating more space off the dribble.”
