The NBA columnist says Bradley Beal should leave the wizards, possibly for the Lakers or the Nuggets
It has recently been reported that the Brooklyn Nets are interested in stores for Bradley Beal to add a third star alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Beal’s agent later denied the rumorsBut is it time for the 26-year-old shooter to part with the wizards?
NBA columnist Grant Hughes published an article in the Bleacher Report in which he explained why Beal should leave Washington. First of all, it’s the wizard’s feat. This season, the previous third draft pick averages a total of 30.5 points per game, which puts him in second place in the entire league, right behind James Harden (34.4 PPG), but his team is only 24-40 (9th place in the Eastern Conference). .
John Wall’s return could add to the team results, but at the same time, Beal would have to sacrifice his shots as he has to share basketball with Wall. This could be a factor for the 26-year-old, who has the best season individually.
Another point to consider is the Wall contract. “Most importantly, from 2020-21 to 2022-23, its 30-year to 32-year season, Wall will raise approximately $ 133 million. It will be almost impossible to move this deal without sacrificing a mountain of sweet interventions, ”Hughes writes. Beal would have to decide whether to bet on his All-Star teammate or sell Washington’s future fortune to other teams. In any case, it would be a waste of his prime.
Hughes listed the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets as potential targets for Beal to continue his career. The Lakers have reportedly shown interest in the wizards guard in the past. However, Beal himself downplayed such rumors say “I’m good”. Before the start of the current season Zach Buckley from Bleacher Report made the case for a possible Beal trade to Denver.
