Beal’s Attitude a Perfect Fit for Wizards?
That leaves (Bradley) Beal, whose Summer League wasn’t perfect but whose play still provided reason for excitement.
“Everything comes to him, he doesn’t press and it all happens in the flow,” one Eastern Conference talent evaluator told CBSSports.com. “Even here at Summer League.”
“He just plays with composure,” (John) Wall said. “He’s really relaxed. He don’t force anything. Just make shots. Tonight he been struggling, I told him to just keep shooting.”
Beal posted averages of 17.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists while shooting 41.7 percent from the field and 30 percent from deep. He hit for double-figures in all five of Washington’s games, including a high of 22 points in his Summer League debut against the Atlanta Hawks.
“I’ve got to improve on everything,” Beal said after his final game on Wednesday. “I could have shot the ball a lot better. I definitely have to work on that and my defense more than anything. The work doesn’t stop. I was happy, but I wasn’t happy with my performance.”
