MarJon Beauchamp

Scouting Report

The 6-foot-6 wing played at four schools in as many prep seasons, winning two state championships in Washington. Was a four-star prospect with offers from schools such as Washington and Arizona.
After opting for a season of community college basketball in his hometown of Yakima, Wash., Beauchamp decided to play in the G-League.
Playing for the San Francisco-based Ignite of the G-League, Beauchamp averaged 15.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.6 steals. He made 57.1% of his field goal tries but only 24.2% of his 3-point attempts.
Strengths: With his height, 7-foot-1 wingspan, explosive hops and blazing speed in the open floor, Beauchamp is a virtual guarantee to be a first-round pick despite questions about his game and his unusual path to the draft. With a quick first step and a dynamic handle, using crossovers and spins, Beauchamp can free himself for high-flying slam dunks in the halfcourt. His skill set also projects him as an elite perimeter defender. Outstanding rebounder evidenced by his 7.3 figure in the G-League where he showed a rare instinct for reading shots off the rim and bolting to the ball.
Weaknesses: Outside shooting, both off the catch and on the dribble. Additionally, he made just 65% of his free-throw tries. His shot selection needs work as he too often settles for jumpers in situations where he could drive. A shoot-first player, Beauchamp often ignores open teammates, especially in the half court. Doesn't move well without the ball and has a tendency to over-dribble as he hunts for shots. Prone to turnovers as well, committing 2.3 per game. Strength is a question as he appears to shy from contact. Possible red flag: Playing for six different teams in as many seasons. Additionally, Beauchamp is one of the older players in the draft as he turns 22 in October.
