Washington Wizards Trade Rumors
Trade rumors about the Washington Wizards.
There are numerous teams eyeing the forward.
This may be the non-move that all NBA fans are screaming "NOOOOOO!!!" about.
Several rumors have linked the Wizards to Atlanta forward John Collins.
It makes sense because the Wizards are likely out of the NBA playoff race and Kuzma is planning on testing the free agent market.
To be clear, it doesn’t appear that Beal is at the top of their wish list since the Lakers are also interested in Kevin Durant and Damian Lillard.
Kuzma could be a great addition to other teams, but the Wizards see him as more of a foundational player.
Discussions between the New York Knicks and the Utah Jazz have restarted.
To be clear, the Wizards are not the favorites to land Mitchell.
The Knicks have the most available cap room of all NBA teams and could absorb big contracts, but it’s not like the Wizards would get much in return or if other teams would be involved.
The King of Triple Doubles could be headed back to his hometown, though the Lakers are rumored to be pursuing Chris Paul first.
The Dallas Mavericks post is frustrated in Texas. But it will cost Washington more than Davis Bertans and another contract to make such a trade work.
Don’t expect the injured sharpshooter to be traded by Mar. 25 however.
The teams didn’t get far in initial talks, and it’s hard to see Griffin on the Wizards unless Rui Hachimura also got traded.
Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington gave some more insight regarding why the Wizards point guard is linked to a blockbuster trade for Houston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook.
We chatted about the biggest news of the day outside of the NBA Draft last night.
The Washington Wizards guard made the comments on NBA veteran JJ Redick’s podcast "The Old Man and The Three" earlier this week. They are eye-opening, but also state the team’s situation.
Former Wizard and Warrior Larry Hughes thinks "where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire" when this many credible journalists keep mentioning it.
There aren’t many teams that can put together an interesting offer for Beal. The New Orleans Pelicans are a team that can.
The latest trade rumor has Bradley Beal going to the Lakers. But given the assets available, it also seems that L.A. is pre-planning for the Wizards starting a rebuild very soon.
