Henry Abbott @TrueHoop
@David Thorpe: Relentless driver and scorer who defends as well. Knows how to play and should play pretty quickly. Wiz building a solid core via draft and need a star if they move Beal.

Wisconsin guard Johnny Davis, as many expected, went 10th in the draft to the Wizards. He and Beal should make one dynamic backcourt. – 9:05 PM

A bunch of prospects in this year’s NBA Draft said they look up to Bradley Beal, some even model their games after him.
That means a lot to Beal. “Maybe I’m not as bad as people may think.” nbcsports.com/washington/wiz…11:27 AM

Braylon Beal can already dribble better than me 🤣

Tommy Sheppard may have said the Wizards have no problem playing Bradley Beal at point guard, but that lacks context. It was a short part of a larger response, but the feel was in spot minutes, not full time. Washington is looking for a starting traditional defensive point guard. – 12:20 PM

The idea of the Wizards trading up to 4 is interesting to me b/c it would cost a ton (likely 3 1sts + more) &, while I love Ivey as a prospect, he’s 20 & offers no guarantees.
Even if he’s great, it might take a few yrs & Beal’s 29. Same package might get you a proven star… – 10:12 AM

More on this storyline

Marc Stein: I’ve heard this from from various people around the league, including some who have actually tried to recruit him: Bradley Beal is the one who has volunteered the ‘I want to be the Dirk Nowitzki of the Wizards’ line. I mean, that comes from him. -via marcstein.substack.com / June 21, 2022
Beal, who turns 29 next week, is eligible to sign a five-year deal with Washington estimated in the $250 million range in free agency and the Wizards, based on Sheppard’s ebullience in discussing all things Beal and the chance to finally pair him with Kristaps Porziņģis in training camp, don’t seem concerned in the slightest about securing his signature. -via marcstein.substack.com / June 21, 2022
