Turning over the Washington Wizards roster in five trades

Getty Image

National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Wizards are open to trade discussions involving everyone on their roster, including All-Star guards John Wall and Bradley Beal.

The Wizards have resisted including Wall or Beal in previous trade talks, including discussions that they held for the league's past two available stars, Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler, league sources said. This squad, as now constituted, isn't good enough to win an NBA Finals, or even advance past the first or second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Wizards have made the playoffs four times with Beal and Wall, but have never advanced past the conference semifinals.

There were rumors linking John Wall to a potential trade to Lakers during the offseason, pairing him with LeBron James, and where there's smoke, there's fire.

Whatever worked in the past with the Washington Wizards is no longer working during the 2018-2019 season and the Washington Wizards are not going to just sit around and watch this season go to waste without making a move.

The Wizards do have some intriguing players, specifically Wall and Beal, but tearing apart this roster may not be an easy task.

Blowing up the roster makes sense for the Wizards. That's not a contract many teams can take on. Porter still has three years remaining on a deal in which he is owed $81 million. Wall was selected first in the 2010 National Basketball Association draft, whereas Beal was the third pick two years later. The Wiz didn't have a first-round selection in 2014, 2016 or 2017. The Wizards are 5-11 and host the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday. But the results prove an entirely different picture.
