There are tons of PGs who have all the skills you mention but shooting. And

that's what keeps them from the NBA. Shooting is hard to teach and all the guys you cited came in as better scorers than Beekman. I think he's got a lot of potential, but I wouldn't take becoming a great shooter as a given for any player.
