One of the biggest names on the trading block to this point of the season has been Bradley Beal. He has been featured in NBA trade rumors since the abbreviated offseason but nothing has happened just yet. It could be only a matter of time before the Washington Wizards decide to take advantage of Beal’s hot start and use his value in a trade.
Bradley Beal continues to be one of the best scorers in the league. He currently leads the NBA with 33.3 points per game. The individual success of Beal has not impacted the Wizards in the win column so far.
The Wizards are currently 6-15 and a game and a half above the Detroit Pistons, which is keeping them out of the basement. Washington is allowing 120.1 points per contest which is the most in the Eastern Conference by over four points. It is safe to say that there is no turnaround in sight for the Wizards.
This could lead them to trading one of their big names for another player that has been featured in NBA trade rumors. Buddy Hield and the Sacramento Kings are still together but the breakup could be on the horizon.
NBA trade rumors surfaced in the offseason because of alleged disgruntled feelings coming from Hield after he was moved to the bench last season in favor of Bogdan Bogdanovic. Sacramento is another rebuilding franchise and could look to add a superstar to pair with De’Aaron Fox.
This trade would come as a bit of a surprise and feature some huge names. Let’s take a look and see what it might take to get this one done.
