Teams won't really fall for this, but every little bit helps. Bradley Beal is helping himself. From Sports Illustrated:
Agent Mark Bartelstein told SI.com that he has no plans for Beal to conduct workouts with teams beyond the top four. Beal is tentatively scheduled to work out for Washington on Thursday, Cleveland on Saturday and Charlotte on June 18.

Beal has skyrocketed up the board since February. The tournament put him on another level. The comparisons to Ray Allen are on point, when you factor in the consistency of his jumper. His measurement of 6-4 in shoes at the combine helps ease the concerns about his size. The Bobcats need a scorer at No. 2, the Wizards need a shooter at No. 3, and the Cavaliers need a backcourt running mate for Kyrie Irving at No. 4.
It's not just posturing by Beal. He's going top four.
