The Washington Wizards have been fortunate to have had a pair of the best guards in the nation’s capital for years, unfortunately for them, nothing ever really came of it. Bradley Beal is seemingly frustrated with the way things are going with his current team and he could be dealt near the NBA trade deadline.

There have been a ton of NBA trade rumors swirling regarding the future of Bradley Beal, but nobody really knows where he will be dealt. Beal is certainly a top-three MVP candidate as it currently stands, so whoever does land him will be getting a super star player.

Beal is in the final year of his contract, so adding him to a team who is contending for a deep playoff run is the likely scenario. The Wizards need to throw in the towel and go ahead and deal Bradley Beal and start gearing up for the future. The team has struggled thus far and the loss of their emerging star center Thomas Bryant doesn’t help their case.

Beal is currently averaging 35.0 points per game, 5.0 rebounds per game, and 4.6 assists per game. Beal is also shooting 48.9 percent from the floor and 38.6 percent from behind the arc, making him one of the most highly sought after players on the NBA trade block.
