NBA Comparison: MarShon Brooks/James Anderson

Strengths: Athletic slasher capable of becoming a 2-way threat if he can develop his skill set … Finished the season averaging 15.1/7.3/2.3 on shooting splits of 53.9/28.6/71.9 in the G League for the Ignite … Beauchamp showed solid improvement this season … Physically, Beauchamp has great size for his position and it makes him a better player at both ends of the floor … Standing at 6-6 with a seven foot wingspan, his physical attributes will assist him as a player and prospect at the next level … His length helps him defensively and on the boards … While he is not a physically imposing guard, he is still averaging 6.6RPG, 1.4 OREB and 5.2 DREB, the second best rebounding numbers on the team … His rebounding ability helps eliminate second chance points for the opposing team … An average defender aided by his size and length, he has shown that he can disrupt passing lanes, cleanly contest and block shots frustrating his assignment … As he continues to improve on the defensive end it will create more playing opportunities and open up other aspects of his game … Beauchamp already has shown the ability to push the ball in transition, find the open man on the break and play with the ball in his hands … Currently, he is better served as the secondary ball handler instead of acting as a floor general but being able to play on or off ball gives him added intrigue … With the ability to shoot from the catch or by creating his own shot, Beauchamp can score at all three levels which should allow him to translate well to the NBA … While he isn’t necessarily an all-world athlete he has shown he is laterally quick and can get around defenders at the G-League level …

Weaknesses: Beauchamp has the physical gifts to be a standout NBA player however, this doesn’t mean there aren’t concerns when it comes to his physical attributes … Even though he has size and length, he isn’t a physically imposing player … Needs to add strength and look to play more physical … Struggling to finish through contact and at times working to avoid contact altogether could hold him back at the next level, especially when trying to score in the paint … He averaged just over one free throw made per game and converted 71.9% from the stripe … His lack of strength could also be a concern on the defensive end of the floor until he puts on strength … In addition to his lack of physicality, he has a tendency to gamble too often when trying to disrupt passing lanes. … When the game speeds up at the next level he will have to become more disciplined in deciding when to attempt to intercept a pass … Offensively he can continue to improve his shot selection and consistency as a shooter … Tends to force his shot even when there is a higher percentage look available on the floor … Sometimes labeled a streaky shooter as he grows the hope will be he finds a more consistent rhythm … Beauchamp can improve his decision making, court vision and ball handling even marginally he will become much better with the ball in his hands … Even though he has shown the ability to push the ball in transition and get into the paint with the Ignite, sometimes, he is too focused on the rim … He should look to move the ball if the defense collapses instead of trying to get it up over multiple defenders … Additionally, his size gives him potential as a playmaker but he has to cut down on his turnovers … Turning the ball over at the same rate he is assisting won’t cut it in his quest to gain development minutes … Finally, he won’t break you down with an array of dribble moves or make you chase him around the floor which will put a ceiling on his ability to create his own shots …

Outlook: Beauchamp elected to become a member of the G-League Ignite team this season instead of playing overseas or at the collegiate level … Overall, Beauchamp’s size, length and potential should be enough to make him a first round selection … Paired with his success in the G-League he could tap into the late lottery, but figures to be highly dependent on landing in a good situation … As a prospect he played well with the Ignite, however it is hard to find something he does at an elite level … Most of the optimism in his draft stock seems to be based on his ceiling and the attributes you can’t teach … Truly a wait and see prospect …

Notes: Beauchamp played for the G League Ignite after playing 12 games last season for Yakima Valley College, where he averaged 30.7 pts, 10.5 rebs and 4.8 asts and shot 52.5% from the floor and 39.8% from three … Born in Los Angeles and relocated to Seattle, Washington as a youth …

Joe Casey 6/8/22

Strengths: 6’6 wing … Good length for position … Good athleticism and can finish above the rim when attacking … Good scoring instincts with the ball. Solid ability to create using crossovers and spins to get separation. Can shoot off the catch or dribble/on the move and can hit shots from anywhere on the floor. Averaged 16.2 points per game at 45.1% FG% over the adidas Gauntlet in 2018 and finished 10th in scoring with 19.2 points per game at 60.6% FG% in 2019. Averaged 13 points per game at 50% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Solid passing ability. Does a good job finding the open man mid-attack and whenever a second defender comes … Good tools defensively with his length and lateral ability …

Weaknesses: Can improve strength and doesn’t handle contact well … Good athlete but doesn’t have elite explosive ability … Can get more movement off the ball and tends to stay out of the action if the ball isn’t in his hands … Naturally a scorer but hunts for opportunities to put points up rather than scoring in the flow. Settles for contested shots at times. Can clean up his handle and has room to expand scoring arsenal, especially if he’s selling himself as a scorer at the highest level. Can improve contribution in areas outside of scoring as well; rebounding, playmaking, etc. … Smooth shooting stroke but can improve consistency and has a low set point on shot. More of a streaky shooter than consistent knock down right now. Shot 31.8% 3PT% over the adidas Gauntlet in 2018 and shot 32.7% 3PT% in 2019 … Solid passer but can improve playmaking ability …

Outlook: Will skip college and train for the 2021 NBA Draft with the Chameleon BX program … Transferred to Dream City Christian for his senior year … Was a freshman on the 2017 Nathan Hale team that finished 27-0 to win the Class 6A State Title …

Notes: Measured: 6’5.25” barefoot, 6’6.50” in shoes, 8’10.0” standing reach,  196.6 lbs, 7’0.75” wingspan at the 2022 NBA Draft Combine …
