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.

Heat’s Udonis Haslem Uncertain About Future

Published

The Miami Heat celebrated the career of Dwyane Wade this past season, ahead of the future Hall of Famer’s retirement at the end of the season, but another franchise legend may be out the door soon as well.

Heat forward Udonis Haslem, who has spent his entire 16-year career with the Heat, reflected on the celebration of Wade.

“Although nothing on the scale of what Dwyane has done for his one last dance, a lot of people feel like I should take the time to be celebrated at some point,” Haslem said, according to Ira Winderman of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “Personally, as the person I am, I feel like the Haslem family as a whole deserves the opportunity to celebrate when my career does come to an end. So that has some effect on a decision that we make.”

Haslem also commented on an after party following Wade’s final game, which included all of Wade’s family.

“My stepmom wasn’t there, my father wasn’t there, my wife wasn’t there, my kids weren’t there,” Haslem said. “So that wasn’t my moment. That’s what makes it hard, either way.”
