Bradley Beal is currently at the top of most team’s wishlist. He’s one of the best scorers in the league and people just don’t feel like the Washington Wizards are ready to compete any time soon, so they’re definitely going to get a lot of offers for their All-Star guard.
That’s’ why Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report put together a trade package that could benefit both the Miami Heat and the Wizards, as they could make a run at Bradley Beal in return for Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, Kendrick Nunn, and Kelly Olynynk:
“A Beal deal only makes sense for the Wizards if it brings back a haul, and this package should qualify. Herro is the centerpiece as a 20-year-old with a fiery three-point shot and flashes of advanced shot-making maneuvers. But Robinson’s sniping, Nunn’s off-the-bounce scoring and Olynyk’s spacing all add to the equation for Washington, quite possibly nudging its whole clear of where it currently resides.
Miami, meanwhile, snags an in-prime star without giving up anyone near that level. Maybe Herro eventually comes close, but by the time that happens, Jimmy Butler’s championship window might be sealed shut. This trade for Beal, though, keeps it open indefinitely and could make Miami a popular pick to take the East next season,” read the report.
This trade would definitely suit all parties. The Heat would get their highly desired second star and a guy that, unlike Jimmy Butler, can consistently knock down threes. The price is a bit too high, yes, but that’s what you have to pay for a talent like Beal.
Washington, on the other hand, would get 3 fine young assets to rebuild next to Rui Hachimura, their first-round pick of this year, and Thomas Bryant, meaning they could be contending for a playoff spot a couple of years from now. Get it done, Pat!
