NBA comparison: Patrick Beverly

Phil Pressey is one of my favorite prospects in this year’s or next year’s draft. The Mavs could use scoring and a hustler off the bench. Rodrigue Beaubois is inconsistent, Brandan Wright needs a reliable pick & roll buddy, and overall, it’s time to collect some prospects for the future.
The potential in Pressey might be a concern with his size, but in the past few years, the point guard position has evolved into the greatest position of this generation. Pressey has all the fundamentals and attributes to develop into a reliable dimer and floor general off the bench. Size doesn’t prove anything.
