Bradley Beal said the playing style of his teammate Rui Hachimura reminds him of Kawhi Leonard.

Beal praised the rookie forward and claimed he plays like the superstar of the Los Angeles Clippers.

“He’s not Kawhi, but he plays like him. He has a high ceiling. He’s not really a four. We can really make him into a three. We can make him into a playmaker. He can post up smaller guys.

He can guard bigger guys. He’s very versatile in a lot of ways. I love him. He’s a workhorse. I don’t know who he’s really comparable to, because his ceiling’s that high,” Beal said during an appearance on Zach Lowe’s “The Lowe Post” podcast.

Hachimura was averaging 13.4 points and 6.0 rebounds for the Washington Wizards this season.
