The Bradley Beal’s rumors are not going away yet, with the Washington Wizards being at the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
Mike Scotto of Hoopshype and Fred Katz of the Athletic talked on Beal’s future with the franchise on the latest episode of the HoopsHype podcast.
Scotto revealed the expected value in a potential trade package for Bradley Beal this season taking into consideration a couple of NBA executive’s assessment.
“One exec said, ‘A whole bunch of picks, and I think they could try to have another team take a bad contract with him as well. I think it’d be somewhere between the Jrue Holiday and Harden trades. Harden was an MVP scoring champ in terms of talent. He (Beal) is in between both of them.”
Another exec said, ‘If you look at the last couple of trades, depending on the players going back, I’d imagine two or three first-round picks and potentially pick swaps as well.’
The Wizards were able to win their latest game against the contending Brooklyn Nets thanks to Russell Westbrook’s and Bradley Beal’s impressive performances.
Beal had 37 points, on 13-of-23 shooting, to help the Wizards snap a four-game losing streak and earn their fourth win this season.
The Florida product is leading the NBA in scoring with an average of 34.9 points in 15 games of the 2020/21 regular season campaign.
He scored +26 points in all the games he took part this year, however the Washington Wizards, who were expected to be in the playoff conversation, are still trying to found their footing.
