Malik Beasley is one of the more intriguing late-first/early-second round prospects as he showed himself to be a great scorer and shooter, while also being one of the best athletes in the draft.
Beasley averaged 15.6 points on 47.1 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from deep in arguably the best conference in the country, the ACC. He attacks the basket aggressively with an extremely quick first step, but his best attribute may be his defense.
His quickness, and athleticism could allow him to guard as many as three positions at the next level. He is extremely focused and locked in when on the court, has a great work ethic and motor, and is constantly flying around the court.
There are some worries with Beasley in regards to his average size for the position (6’4 1/2, 6’7 wingspan) and his ability to create off the dribble consistently. But the Lakers have enough ball dominant players already, meaning Beasley could fit right in around the Lakers other young talents while developing the rest of his game.
