The Washington Wizards decided to pull the trigger on a trade that sent John Wall to the Rockets in exchange for Russell Westbrook.

Bradley Beal weighed on the Wizards’ decision to make the trade admitting that it was an emotional week for him, after the deal officially went through.

“It’s been an emotional week,” Beal said, via Fred Katz of The Athletic. “Definitely been some tough 24, 48, 72 hours here, just kind of letting it all seep in and realizing that your brother is no longer here with you no more. He’s off to something better.”

Many rumors suggested Beal would like to play in a contending team, although the Wizards’ superstar denied again and again he wants out of Washington.

The 27-year-old guard averaged a career-high 30.5 points per game last season.
