NBA Rumors: Wizards Trading John Wall, Bradley Beal To Heat, Bulls?
Are the Washington Wizards trading John Wall and Bradley Beal to either the Miami Heat or Chicago Bulls?
That is the latest chatter around the NBA this week.
In a recent interview with the Palm Beach Post, league insider Jalen Rose indicated that he would not be surprised if either individually or as a duo Wall and/or Beal ended up with the Heat.
“Hey Washington, if you’re dumb enough to trade me Bradley Beal, we’ll take John Wall’s deal,” he said.
“You know those conversations were being had, since one is injured and one was coming up on a new contract,” Rose continued.
“Whether it’s Beal himself, of course you take him. If it’s Beal and Wall, you definitely take them.
“Regardless, I think Miami will remake their roster and continue to put themselves in position to go from playoff team to contending-level team.”
The Bulls are another potential option for Beal.
In a recent piece, Willie Lutz of Fansided suggested that Chicago could give up Zach LaVine, Chandler Hutchinson, a 2020 first-round pick, and a 2022 first-round pick for Beal.
Will the Wizards ultimately part ways with the two players who were once supposed to be the cornerstones of their franchise?
We’ll find out soon enough.
