The Washington Wizards expect to have John Wall and Bradley Beal back in full health in the upcoming season. However, in the last few days reports suggested that Wall asked the Wizards to get traded.

When asked whether he had requested a trade, as The Washington Post reported Friday and Wizards General Manager Tommy Sheppard denied Monday, the 30-year-old point guard said, “No comment”.

Wall is coming back from serious injuries that kept him away from the court for almost one-and-half seasons. The five-time All-Star helped hand out 1,000 meals on Tuesday and was asked about his relationship with GM Tommy Sheppard, per Washington Post.

“It’s been cool; just talking,” Wall said of his relationship with Sheppard. “Talk and try to figure things out. That’s the best we can do. We all understand it’s a business.”

Asked what it is that Wall would like to figure out, he clammed up again. “No comment,” he said.

Wall had averages of 19.0 points, 9.2 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 573 games in his career with the Washington Wizards.
