Update on Justin Bean

Post by aggies22 » May 22nd, 2022, 8:41 pm

Justin tells me that he's had workouts with Atlanta, Golden State, Boston, and Minnesota. He has a pro day yesterday (Saturday), and then he has workouts planned with Oklahoma City, Utah, Brooklyn, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Charlotte. With more in the works.

Would love to see him play for the warriors. They're playing their entire roster this year. If he made the team, he'd likely see some time.

He also had a workout with Atlanta, so he's almost made it halfway through the NBA! Sounds like he has a great agent. Hopefully, he can impress enough and leverage that interest into getting drafted.

Justin is the type of player/personality that can really improve a team. Even if he is the 12 guy on the bench just his hard work ethic, attitude and ability to get along with everyone can make a positive impact on the team even without playing big minutes. I hope he gets an opportunity.

He told me that. Somehow I left the Hawks off the list. Thanks for pointing that out my Aggie brother!

Welcome. It's funny how Bean somehow continues to consistently outperform expectations. It'll be fun to monitor his journey.

In talking with him, he seems pretty hell bent on making an NBA team. Why should anyone doubt him?

My belief has been that Bean gets picked in the NBA draft. Bean has talent, some length and size, quickness, and most importantly the work effort.

I'll be shocked if he gets drafted. I won't be quite as shocked if he makes a team as an UFA.

I wouldn't be shocked. One thing that could hurt his chance is there will only be 58 picks in this year's draft.

Maybe he'll be able to tell teams picking late that if they want him, they should draft him or he'll sign elsewhere (similar to Sam)

Are there any real benefits to being drafted late in the second round vs signing as a UFA?

Late seconds usually don't have guaranteed contracts and assuming multiple teams offer, a UFA gets to decide where they go (i.e. avoid the Kings).

I love that he's hell bent on playing in the NBA. No doubt he'll get there. I wish JC had that same attitude instead of settling for a cushy life in Spain.

The game was different then. With his shooting, he'd be a draft pick now.

I still remember the article about changing Romney to Maverick stadium. The picture they picked was Byu scoring a TD in our end zone and the DB getting burned. Anything Deseret news can do to make us look bad and highlight the golden child.

I've questioned the DNews alot on this over the years. For example, it seemed like almost every general article about USU basketball over the last 4 years was always headlined by a picture of Brock Miller and not the star (or a more photogenic) player.

...and, of course, selection of photo based on the opponent in the frame, as well. Deseret News staff reporters don't want the appearance of the Aggie brand to appear anything close to, you know, er, "likeable", or anything, do they?

Des News writes a huge feature piece on Justin Bean highlighting almost every aspect of his current life and prep and people are complaining because there's a byu player in the top picture.

Realistically they probably were like- "Do we have any USU pictures of Justin Bean" and they were like "ya there's gotta be a few from the game in the BYU photo database."

Jaycee spent three years in NBA training camps. All three times the team he was with tried making him a point guard, completely negating his true talents and skill set. If he'd come out five years later, he probably would have stuck somewhere as the game today really doesn't have pure position expectations anymore.

I blame Stew for this. I personally talked to JC just after his junior year and he said the NBA scouts told him they wanted to see him play more on ball his senior year (same thing they told Steph Curry). But Stew refused. Which is stupid considering the team Stew put around him that season (I couldn't tell you who the starting PG was)!

JC was an incredible athlete and a great off the dribble player. I'm not sure about his passing or defense but had he focused on it for a year (and offseason) he would have mastered that position as well.

Probably, but there was more prestige to be had playing in the NBA. In fact, he dominated in summer league multiple times and turned down a handful of fall camp invites to go to Europe. Even if it were for a season or two. Europe would have been there as a fall back.

Point is, it sounds like Bean will do EVERYTHING he can to make the league. Europe is not on his radar.

Queta and Merrill almost went undrafted. Love Bean but my guess is that he's not going to play in the NBA.

Not having it on his radar is plain stupid, if true (Who really knows but bean). I love everything about him but he’s not an nba player or even close. It’s not a knock on him it’s just reality.

I love that he's hell bent on playing in the NBA. No doubt he'll get there. I wish JC had that same attitude instead of settling for a cushy life in Spain.
Jaycee spent three years in NBA training camps. All three times the team he was with tried making him a point guard, completely negating his true talents and skill set. If he'd come out five years later, he probably would have stuck somewhere as the game today really doesn't have pure position expectations anymore.
He’s a 6’1” shooting guard that’s not very athletic, couldn’t guard nor handle the ball. He was never going to make it or stick in the NBA. I freaking love the dude, one of my all time favorites but there aren’t many dudes that are 6’1” that stick in the nba period, let alone ones that are as limited as him in all other aspects of the game besides shooting.

Going to Europe when he did was absolutely the right thing to do. At least imho

Nonsense, JC was a great athlete with a mean cross-over, non-stop motor and serious handles. Just because he was an all-time great shooter doesn't mean he didn't know how to handle a basketball. In fact, he would break guys down off the dribble and make them pay for closing out on him all the time. My favorite move of his was this high arching floter in the lane. He would dunk on occasion which you can't do if you're "not very athletic."

I think USU and Spencer probably had Jaycee's ear at the time as well. Spencer did some camps and things trying to get a shot in the NBA which at the time hurt his European season. I'm sure Jaycee looked at the options and said forget the NBA I'm going to play professionally in Europe and enjoy where it takes me. If the NBA didn't want me I'll go to where they do.

It was absolutely the right choice for him.

This post is likely straight up poor sarcasm and cannot be taken seriously.

Every time people talk about NBA vs Europe for Jaycee, I think to myself: "Make millions and have a great time in Madrid, or battle for playing time and money in Milwaukee/Sacramento/etc?" No brainer for me. Of course, I'm not an athlete with competitive drive, so who knows?

Why not both? Aim for glory for a few years and if it doesn't work, go to Europe.

I honestly can’t tell if you are serious or not.
Great Athlete, serious handles and dunking were characteristics that were NEVER associated with him.
