Strengths: A tremendous athlete who can play above the rim, Beatty has the size and athleticism to play high-major basketball. Very good at finishing around the basket when driving, has the body and strength to finish with contact, very effective scorer in the open court. Very good handle, Developed his jump shot to become an effective shooter. Good defender who likes to play the passing lanes.
Weaknesses: Likes to play the point position but lacks intangibles needed to play the position; has to work on making other people around him better by becoming a better distributor. Needs to continue to refine his shot selection and become a more efficient scorer.
Overall: Despite being a very talented guard already, Beatty still has a lot of upside to look forward to. Has everything you want from a dream point guard with size, speed and agility; just has to learn to play the point or embrace his scoring abilities over to shooting guard position.
