There has been an overwhelming buzz surrounding Bradley Beal this season. Because of the circumstances in Washington, the community is considering it inevitable that he ends up with another team before the end of 2020.
And while Beal’s camp has been mostly silent on the rumors, his recent activity on Twitter may suggest he’d be open to a trade to Miami.

No doubt, the fan is just dreaming of a made-up scenario, but Brad Beal seems to be encouraging that line of thinking.
No matter if he ends up in Miami, his time in Washington is likely drawing to a close. With the team headed towards a steep rebuild, and Beal nearing the end of his current deal, it’s only a matter of time before he either demands a trade out or he leaves via free-agency in 2021.
Wherever he goes, he has the chance to make some serious waves. Last season, the 26-year-old shooting guard had his best season as a pro. He registered career-highs in three major statistical categories with 25.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game while playing in all 82 games for a second straight year.
Might those talents be better served with the Heat, alongside backcourt running-mate, Jimmy Butler? At least one fan certainly seems to think so.
