Malik Beasley (DEN) – “Leek”
Shooting Guard/Small Forward: 6’5, 190 lbs; 2nd year, Florida State
NBA Role: (raw) two-way wing • UnderDOG
What’s the word on FSU’s Malik Beasley? Well, he really loves to defend, can knock down triples & has naturally impressive athleticism • What else? Well, Beasley features a bulldog trait you always look for in a young prospect – loves to mix it up on defense, fights for loose balls without second-guessing; should he have gone higher? – drafted 19th overall, Denver has a real steal on its hands – Mike Malone could get some nice 3&D minutes outta Beasley whilst figuring out what to do with him on the wing (can he play SF at this level?*); needs to work on pace of play + cutting down on turnovers – Coach Malone’s ace in the hole in 2018?
*aka can he defend small forwards at this level?
Signature Shot: TBD.
