The NBA offseason has been full of intriguing trades and the latest included a Russell Westbrook for John Wall swap. There are still some intriguing possibilities to think about— including the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers engaging in a deal centered around Bradley Beal and Paul George.
There were some real issues that took place for the Clippers— resulting in shortcomings in the NBA playoffs. The duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George ended up outright failing to get it done in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals. Could a change be required?
One of the appeals of the Leonard-George duo is how both are elite defensive wings. However, a talent like Bradley Beal who is a versatile scorer and pure shooter could be a better fit alongside Leonard to take the pressure off him in crucial situations.
Meanwhile, the Wizards don’t have much reason to move on from Beal given his continued commitment to the organization. There is newfound optimism with the addition of Westbrook, too. If Washington doesn’t feel as though that grace period will last— selling high on Beal could be an option.
Let’s take a look at a three-team trade focused around the Los Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards centered around Bradley Beal and Paul George.
