A successful year for Beal is to earn significant minutes, show his potential, and have numbers that show promise. .400+ fg% and .300+ fg% would be lines he'd have to find himself north of as a shooter. I dont care about his rebounding unless it is too low, as this aspect of a guards game is icing and not cake. I'm very interested to see his defense though I expect him to get shredded as a rookie, again we are looking for potential.
He true test is to show improvement every year and star power in year three or four. That's 2014-15. That matters because he shouldn't be near his prime until after the contract cataclysm.
Steve you see Serphin starting over Okafor? I don't. Unless Seraphin flat out beats Okafor in camp and preseason h should come off th bench. I like that personally, make everyone earn it.
I think Beal should have to beat out Crawford as well (and I might still have him playing 6th man for a while, just to make him work).
