Bradley Beal at Center of Trade Rumors Ahead of NBA Draft

Bradley Beal Trade Rumors

Washington Wizards’ star Bradley Beal has found himself at the center of trade rumors just days before the NBA Draft.

“He knows he has to make a decision before the draft,” one source with direct knowledge of Beal’s thinking told Bleacher Report, as reported by Jake Fischer.

From the outside, it seems there are only a few teams with the assets and cap flexibility to trade for Beal – as well as the confidence that he would sign a long-term extension.

One such team is the Boston Celtics, who Jason Dumas of Bleacher Report reported “would be a preferred destination” for Beal.

Boston would be able to make the deal without involving all-star Jaylen Brown, but it’s not known whether Washington would have any interest in entertaining such a package.

The Golden State Warriors could offer an enticing package centered around the #7 pick, the #14 pick, and forward Andrew Wiggins.

The Atlanta Hawks are another team with a strong foundation that could interest Beal and the Wizards’ front office.

Still, it’s important to take everything with a grain of salt.

Beal hasn’t even requested a trade – so at this point, all of these rumors are simply conjecture.
