Bradley Beal Drawing Heavy Interest

After making himself available to the top four teams in the draft, Bradley Beal is done with workouts, as Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer writes. Beal is confident he's a top-four pick, and at least one league executive agrees, telling Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld there's "no way" the Florida guard slips out of the top four (Twitter link). However, that doesn't necessarily mean Beal will become a Hornet, Bobcat, Wizard, or Cavalier — according to Kennedy (via Twitter), there are teams trying to trade into the top four to land Beal.

Reports on Beal's workouts to date have been extremely positive, with multiple outlets giving him the edge over Harrison Barnes when the two worked out against one another for Cleveland on Saturday. The Cavs are expected to draft Beal if he's still on the board when they pick at No. 4, and the 18-year-old has heard enough to feel comfortable about his draft status.

"My agent and I have discussed that," Beal told Bonnell. "Everybody is pretty much telling me I won’t go any lower than [fourth]."

Chad Ford of mentioned this weekend that the Sixers could look to trade up in the draft for a player like Beal. The Raptors, Trail Blazers, and Suns are a few other teams who will likely be targeting shooting guards and could explore the possibility of trading up.

    Charlotte should pick Beal… He and MKG should be on top of their list…. look at the league right now…. after Kobe & Wade, who next to them… Ray Allen? MKG is not a shooter but his a guard…. if need defense either way can be…… but as fan, The both were better pick than Robinson, Barnes, or Drummond.
