After getting drafted late in the second round of the 2020 NBA Draft, the FC Bayern Munich guard Cassius Winston spent two years in the Washington Wizards system.

Throughout the two seasons, he got time to play alongside the league's superstars with Washington's Bradley Beal being one of them. In an interview with SDNA, Winston described the star guard as a hard worker first.

"Bradley is an outstanding, true leader. I watched his practice sessions and observed what it takes to raise the level of his game. In terms of mentality, he was consistently one of the best teammates I've been around," the Bayern newcomer told. "He was completely focused on his goal and worked hard. It's something that he also conveyed to his teammates."

At the same time, the best piece of advice Winston received from Beal was related to working hard as well.

"Working and trusting my work," the 24-year-old player said. "I have to believe in myself and always be confident, knowing that I can get better. I have kept this advice to this day."

During his first year in Europe, Winston has been averaging 11.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.3 steals per game for 11.3 PIR. His numbers are slightly better in the German BBL League - 17.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 3.5 assists.
