Bradley Beal has shown no public interest in wanting out of Washington. Behind the scenes, however, there are whispers that his future with the Wizards is anything but solid. The team is losing and he has yet to accept his max-contract extension.
This truth has led some to believe he could be on the move sooner rather than later. The only question is, where could he go?
Apparently, according to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, a three-team scenario could be possible, in which Beal ends up with the Brooklyn Nets.
“The Wizards, meanwhile, would lean fully into their rebuild with a mountain of picks and prospects. There may not be a guaranteed future star in the mix, but Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen and Rodions Kurucs are all 25-and-under hoopers who have impressed in their short careers, though Kurucs’ inclusion could hinge on the outcome of his assault case. Reggie Jackson would step in as the new point guard placeholder and ideally play well enough for Washington to flip him later as an expiring contract.”
In the proposed trade, Brooklyn would acquire Beal, Svi Mykhailiuk, Khyri Thomas, and Christian Wood, the Wizards would receive Reggie Jackson, Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, Rodions Kurucs, a 2020 first-round pick, a 2022 first-round pick, and a 2024 second-round pick, while the Pistons would get Spencer Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, and Davis Bertans.
It’s a fair deal for all involved, but it would obviously prove most beneficial for the Nets — who would become instant Championship contenders.
