Why the Wizards need a Beal deal ASAP
Washington has considerable motivation to find a workable Bradley Beal trade before Thursday night's NBA Draft
Three-time All-Star guard Bradley Beal has four very lucrative seasons left on the five-year, $251 million contract he signed with the Washington Wizards that is not even one year old.
It’s a contract that also famously features the league’s only full no-trade clause, meaning that Beal possesses an uncommon level of say when it comes to where the Wizards can send him so they can legitimately launch a full-scale rebuild.
Beal’s deal, in other words, was never going to be an easy one to move.
