Bradley Beal NBA Trade Rumors 2022

Beal’s name has long been in NBA trade rumors mainly because the Wizards haven’t been good enough to be on pace to make the playoffs in several of the past season and also due to the fact that his current contract is set to expire at the end of the season. It’s hard to get an exact read on what Beal’s plans are in the offseason, given the circumstances, but from the perspective of Washington’s front office, it appears that the team would rather ramp up the talent around Beal than dangle him as trade bait in hopes that he’ll ultimately re-sign with the Wizards, according to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report.

The Wizards have similarly given no indications they’ll entertain a Beal trade this month. Rather, fortifying a perennial postseason contender with a new co-star like Sabonis would certainly help solidify Beal’s standing in D.C. Executives near and far are bracing against a perceivably developing trend, where stars like Ben Simmons request a trade shortly after signing a lucrative hometown extension. 

The Pacers certainly would have quite a price tag on Sabonis, who is under contract until 2024. The final two years of his deal are worth nearly $38 million, which is going to be difficult to match for Washington. Nevertheless, there remains the possibility that the Wizards would come up with a package that could make Indiana say yes.

Wizards Odds To Win 2022 NBA Championship Ahead of Trade Deadline

Bradley Beal and the Wizards had a good start to the season, winning 10 of their first 13 games, but they have cooled off since. As of this writing, Washington has lost six of its last seven games, resulting in its record going under .500 at 24-27. Currently outside of both the playoff picture and the Play-in Tournament window, the Wizards need a strong second half to make it to the playoffs for the second season in a row.
