Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal and his spouse Kamiah Adams-Beal not too long ago bought a house in Los Angeles this summer season. That naturally introduced up trade rumors of him going to the Lakers or Clippers at some level sooner or later. And the rumors didn’t die when rapper Snoop Dogg overtly made a plead on FOX Sports’ “Undisputed” for Beal to come back to the Lakers.
Adams-Beal reacted by simply laughing the suggestion off, although she is from California.
Beal additionally re-iterated his want to remain in Washington for his NBA profession within the newest episode of Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier’s podcast final Friday. In truth, he want to stay in Washington for the remainder of his profession.
It’s nice to see that Beal needs to stick with the Wizards. And I actually imagine that. However, Washington has to enhance considerably subsequent yr with John Wall anticipated to return after an Achilles harm.
If Wall performs like he did in 2016-17 and doesn’t have any setbacks, like 2018 WNBA MVP Breanna Stewart did final season for the Seattle Storm this previous summer season, the Wizards might contend for the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe even higher if the 76ers, Bucks and Raptors have some setbacks. After all, Beal is taking part in at a really excessive degree. He in all probability would have made the All-NBA workforce if the Wizards gained extra video games final season.
But if the Wizards begin poorly subsequent season and Wall doesn’t look good straight away, then it’s affordable to anticipate that Beal will get traded someplace throughout the subsequent 12 months. I don’t see the Lakers buying and selling for Beal, although regardless of how a lot Snoop Dogg or their followers would need him.
