There have been two big names surrounding NBA trade rumors since the beginning of the offseason. Both Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal and Sacramento Kings’ Buddy Hield have been hot topics but nothing has happened just yet. This is a trade that would send them both away at once.
The situation between Hield and the Sacramento Kings has grown complicated dating back to last year. Hield was unhappy when he was moved to the bench and rumors began flying around that he was interested in being traded.
If this is true, there are many teams who would be interested in trading for Hield given his elite skill from three-point range. That can be particularly valuable for a team who has a real need in this area— including the Wizards when building around Russell Westbrook.
In the Wizards, John Wall requested a trade and was sent to the Rockets in exchange for Westbrook. This creates an intriguing duo in the backcourt but Beal could be used as a trade piece and create another duo in Sacramento. The Wizards are a rebuilding team which means anything is possible moving forward.
If this trade does go down, it would be a blockbuster for both sides. Let’s take a look at what it might look like.
