McHale was there last night watching Beasley, or I guess it could have been all of the players
Bill Walker too I would assume. Or Augustin.
As much as I like Augustin's game at the collegiate level, I couldn't even imagine ANY NBA team paying any attention to him while Beasley is on the floor.
Augustin is a really good, maybe great, college PG, but he is so far away from being a NBA player. Jacque Vaughn was so much better at that level, and he can't get any NBA clock. Augustin is quick and a great ball handler, but also a guy that turns the ball over way too much. He's weak, and he couldn't possibly create his own shot in the NBA. If McHale was there scouting Augustin, more bad news for the Wolves.
Pete. Just wanted to clarify. I wasn't saying he was there to just watch Augustin. I agree with those thoughts (and I'm lower on Beasley than most). I was just saying that he can scout 2 other good players in the process. I really think someone's going to get a steal with Walker IF (and I know this is big) he can stay healthy.
