Justin Bean is a very productive, high-motor combo forward that has been a stat stuffer at Utah State. He is a high-motor player that will score on hustle plays, and he has shown an improved jump shot lately. He is a terrific rebounder for his size, and he will really get after it on the glass. On the other hand, he’s not a great athlete, and he can really struggle to make plays against more athletic opponents. Currently, he may be a long shot to be drafted, but his strong production in college basketball could give him a shot to make it to the NBA someday.
