Bradley Beal has the option of opting out of his Washington Wizards contract this season and becoming a free agent.
Naturally, that has led to a ton of speculation and rumors regarding what the future holds for him.
Last week, Beal appeared on Draymond Green’s podcast and discussed a myriad of topics.
One in particular that stood out: the Miami Heat’s interest in acquiring him this offseason.
“I’m kind of embracing everything,” Beal said.
“So I’m not upset about the rumors, I’m not upset about, you know, teams wanting me. I feel like that’s a good thing, right? We put in the work and we’re wanted by a lot of people, not just where we’re at.”
That said, Beal was also quick to note that he greatly appreciated the fact that Washington “hasn’t been shopping me” and instead “hanging up the phone” when rival squads call about him.
All in all, Beal seems to be soaking the attention up.
“It’s kind of funny,” he continued.
“I’ve never been a free agent. It’s kind of reminding me of college recruiting. Like I hear every single game somebody’s recruiting me. Someone’s like tagging on me, whether it’s another player or whether it may be a coach or whoever it may be, somebody’s chit-chatting: ‘B, what you want to do this summer? What you doing this summer?'”

At this point, Beal has been linked to just about every prominent team in the NBA. There has been chatter about him joining the Los Angeles Lakers, linking up with the Philadelphia 76ers and even playing alongside Stephen Curry on the Golden State Warriors.
Where will Beal ultimately end up when it’s all said and done this summer?
Time will tell.
