Like most NBA players, Bradley Beal is spending this summer working on adding elements into his game for the 2017-18 season. If there’s one part of his game that he isn’t known for, it’s his dribble.
So far this summer, he’s been working with his trainer, Drew Hanlen on just that.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Hanlen, he is a nationally renowned basketball development trainer. He also trains Kelly Oubre Jr. by the way.
In addition to working on his skills on the court, Beal is also developing his chops as a coach.
Beal owns his own AAU team called the “Bradley Beal Elite” squad. They were in Las Vegas last week for a tournament when CSN Mid Atlantic’s Chris Miller caught a video of Coach Beal drawing up plays:

There’s a saying that a point guard is an extension of the coach. Sure, Beal isn’t a “point guard,” but it’s nice to see that he’s showing his basketball skills, both as a student and teacher of the game.
