According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the New Orleans Pelicans were interested in signing Bradley Beal last year.
The pelicans were looking for Anthony Davis’ replacement and wanted to bring another star to the team. However, Beal was under contract with the Washington Wizards, so it was not very likely that the trade would take place.
“New Orleans was a team I heard last year … The Lakers were interested in Beal at some point. If you are interested in winning basketball games, you will be interested in Bradley Beal.
But everything he has said so far, he wants to remain a magician. The wizards said they wanted to keep him. I don’t expect anything from him until we see John Wall and Brad Beal playing again, ”said Charania during a guest appearance in Load management of the complex Podcast.
