Patrick Beverley has earned a reputation of being a vocal leader on any team that he goes. He pushes his teammates to give their best effort and do whatever it takes to win.

His new teammate DeMar DeRozan says that he loves to have a guy like Beverley on the team with his leadership and energy.

“He’s an elite competitor. And it’s hard to find guys who compete at such an elite level as he does,” DeRozan said. “And to have that type of dynamic on any team.

“You see what he brings to every team that he goes to. He competes at a high level, bringing different type of energy, leadership, just everything that comes with it. You got to rally behind a guy like that. The veteran guy. And he does a lot of talking like the old school days. I love that.”
