Bradley Beal continues to flourish as one of the most prolific scorers in the world. However, that’s just not translating into wins and the Washington Wizards look quite far from contention. If anything, they can compete for the first-overall pick in next year’s Draft.
The Wizards boast a historically bad defense and Beal hasn’t hidden his frustration, claiming that they can’t guard a parked car a couple of weeks ago.
Now, following another loss – this time to John Wall and the Houston Rockets – Beal was nearly brought to tears and his frustration was pretty obvious. Clearly, he’s starting to get tired of losing, and perhaps he’d like to force his way out of the capital.
That’s why former NBA player Kendrick Perkins made the most of the chance to let the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers that they must try and find a way to trade for the disgruntled All-Star:
“Hey@MiamiHEAT and @sixers Bradley Beal is frustrated as hell…he would be a HUGE Upgrade to either one of these organizations!!! Don’t @ me,” Perkins tweeted.

The Heat, Sixers, Nuggets, and even Lakers have all inquired about Beal’s availability in the past but he was thought to be off the table. Also, he repeatedly stated that he wanted to play for the Wizards and that’s why he signed a huge extension with them.
Then again, watching that the Russell Westbrook experiment just isn’t working out and that the Wizards are 3-10 to begin the season, the team’s stance – and his – over his future could change pretty son.
Thus far, Beal is averaging a whopping 34.4 points per game on 48.3% from the floor to go along with 5.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.2 steals per game, so no wonder why he’s so frustrated right now.
