I don't think Simmons or Ingram is some kind of franchise savior. Simmons is a great fit as a 4 in the modern NBA though because he can guard inside and on the perimeter, rebound, handle the ball like a guard, and score inside. Even if he never develops a reliable jumper, he is still going to be a very valuable player. I see him as a better version of Draymond Green who can create offense on his own much better than Green.
Summary: Beal is an interesting prospect for me. He didn't really get a chance to show off his true talent as a freshman playing in the same backcourt as Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton who have the ball in their hands so frequently. Still, he is a very talented young player and would be a mid-late lottery pick this summer.
Player Comparison: Eric Gordon. Due to his all-around skill level on the offensive end, Beal is most often compared to Eric Gordon. Beal didn't show the take-over ability in his freshman season like Gordon did, but he is certainly capable of being a big-time shooting guard at the next level.
