No. 5 – Inconsistency is still an issue for MarJon Beauchamp, but he showed signs that he could help the Milwaukee Bucks
After playing virtually a non-existent role during his rookie campaign, MarJon Beauchamp has an opportunity to take a major leap in year two. For that reason, fans were excited to watch him take part in the Summer League to get some extra reps. The biggest word to describe his showcase is “inconsistent,” as the young wing had some trouble finding a groove.
Throughout the first two games, he was great. In a great win over the Denver Nuggets, the wing had 23 points and eight rebounds. In game two, he had 20 points and six rebounds. Beauchamp’s potential as a strong two-way wing was right there, but then his production dropped off mightily over the next two games. In the team’s next matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, he finished with zero points, having missed all of his shot attempts. Against the Miami Heat, Beauchamp notched 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting. He did not play in the team’s finale vs. the Sacramento Kings.
The good and the bad were both showcased over Beauchamp’s four-game stretch. There will be some growing pains for the sophomore, but if he wants to maximize his chances of seeing more time with the Bucks next season, he’ll have to work on that. Milwaukee won’t expect him to put up 20-plus points every night, but he’ll have to be smart with his shots and knock them down. When it’s not falling from 3-point land, he has to attack the hoop, which was a strategy that helped get him going in those first two games. Defensively, he looked good, but there’s room to grow.
