Few storylines will be bigger than Bradley Beal moving forward this NBA offseason. He has spent his entire career with the Washington Wizards, and his loyalty has been unquestioned. Washington could decide to kick their rebuild into hyperdrive with a blockbuster deal this offseason.
The Wizards snuck into the postseason this year, led by Beal and Russell Westbrook. They have not been shy about making big moves. John Wall was sent to the Houston Rockets last year, and Westbrook was recently sent to the Los Angeles Lakers. Beal is the last man remaining.
He has been the piece that has held up the complete rebuild. Washington has been near the bottom of the Eastern Conference for years now, but they have always had Beal to fall back on. That could change if the front office decides to blow it up moving forward.
If that happens, there will be plenty of teams interested in Beal’s services. The San Antonio Spurs can be included on the list. San Antonio knows a thing or two about winning as they have been one of the best franchises over the last two decades, but that has not continued.
