Wizards ‘Giving Impression’ John Wall, Bradley Beal Available in Trade

Published

on

The Washington Wizards may be ready to open up shop and trade guard John Wall or Bradley Beal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Per the report, the longtime untouchable pieces of the Wizards’ core are now not so unobtainable as Washington has struggled to a dismal 5-11 record this season and with play on the court looking listless.

Washington has tried shopping Otto Porter and/or Kelly Oubre in hopes of bringing in a 3rd star to team with Beal and Wall, but have been unable to find any takers, leading them to consider dealing the two superstars.

Washington’s preference remains to reshape the team around Wall and Beal but the play has paralyzed their efforts in acquiring stars such as Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler, per league sources.

Beal, who is younger than Wall, will likely be the more attractive trade piece, even financially. Wall’s contract extension starts in 2019-20 and will average $42 million annually for four years, and is considered to be a favorite among ownership.
