Supposedly Beal is a near-lock for Washington.

According to what source? There's all kinds of speculation about the top 5, but I haven't heard anything about "near-locks" so that's news to me.

The fit makes sense...I don't think they'd have any problem bringing Jordan "nothin but the bucket" crawford off of the bench where he truly belongs. Beal and wall would make a pretty exciting and versatile tandem.

The fit makes sense but I thought the Wiz were also high on MKG. Didn't think anybody was a lock for them.

Rivers will be fine.

I've said it before and I will say it again... NBA pedigree means something. He'll come into the league knowing what he has to do and he'll work hard to improve.

I would be absolutely shocked to see a coach's son (who has some decent ability) fail in the league.

Here's to hoping he slips.
i don't think many would remember mr.4th quarter. i hated him so much because a) because he was deadly and b) no one would shut up about his 4th quater scoring. crazy time for him, shame he's a complete dud now.

It really is amazing what's happened to the Pistons as a franchise. Sad.

I'm still shocked that Prince chose to stay there rather than go somewhere else.

I'm more shocked that they gave him that contract.

the more i read up on rivers, looked at his measurements with out shoes 6 3 and half with shoes he is 6 5, d wade is 6 4, he is not to far off that, rivers is explosive, can finish in the lane and a clutch player

he could be a steal at the draft, he is a gamer, guys like this finish games instead of dissapear in the end of games, we should take him

okc plays a westbrook at pg who is unconvential at pg, if a player can play he puts pressure on the team where ever he is, i don't see a problem with as a combo guard

I don't know about Rivers at 8. However, if we did draft him, it would be ok as long as he plays SG. I hope they wouldn't try something stupid and play him at PG.

Yup. According to this article (LINK) his assist to turnover ratio is less than one. The article also says he has a terrible PER. After watching that "7 Drill" video I watched some other "7 Drill" videos from Beal, and an old one from Solomon Alabi. Even Solo could string together 4 or 5 made shots.
