In a radio interview with “Holden and Danny” on 106.7 The Fan, Colangelo was asked about recent draft pick Bradley Beal and responded, “Beal is a terrific player and has a great future, a bright future, I feel, as far as the NBA, and we’ve got our antennae up on all these young players that are coming up the pike. If Beal gets off to a good start, we’ll be watching him as he comes into the league and his name is on the board.”

Beal was most valuable player of the 2010 FIBA Under-17 world championships in Germany, where he averaged 18.3 points and led the U.S. team that featured fellow first-round picks Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marquis Teague and Tony Wroten to an 8-0 record. He also averaged a team-high 19 points on the FIBA Americas U-16 championship in Argentina.
