Bradley Beal: Cleveland Cavaliers Can't Let Stud SG Slide Past 4th Pick
The Cavaliers own the rights to the No. 4 pick in this year's draft, which might be the perfect spot to draft Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal.
Beal's stock has been on a steady rise since the end of his season. You will be hard pressed to find a mock draft where he is not the first SG taken. Still, as well regarded as Beal is, we know he isn't going No. 1, otherwise known as the Anthony Davis slot.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Thomas Robinson have the best shot going at No. 2 and 3. You never know how things will go with the draft, but there is a good chance that the Cavs will have a shot at Beal.
If that is the case, they should be doing cartwheels. Not only is Beal worth this lofty of a selection, but he is a perfect fit for the Cavs.
Beal is the complete package. He is a little short at just under 6'5", but he has long arms and a solid frame that will not find him getting pushed around.
His has a silky-smooth shooting stroke, solid handles, a good first step, he can finish at the rim and a tremendous basketball IQ. He makes great decisions, and he is not a selfish player.
The Cavs could bring him in and slide him into the starting lineup right alongside defending Rookie of the Year, Kyrie Irving.
That combo would be a foundation for a backcourt that teams have a terrible time trying to match up with.
Should the Cavs take Beal at No. 4?
Both guys play smart basketball and can get into the lane. Beal's shooting stroke will help space out the floor, which will make Irving's job as point guard that much easier. Also, Beal does not need to spend a lot of time playing with the ball in his hands.
These two would be a great fit. It would be an exciting combo for the Cavs and their fans, and a solid foundation for a championship team.
