Turning over the Washington Wizards roster in five trades

Turning over the Washington Wizards roster in five trades

The Washington Wizards fined All-Star guard John Wall for unloading a verbal barrage at coach Scott Brooks in a recent practice session, league sources told ESPN. They have the second-worst defense in the National Basketball Association, as the team is giving up a whopping 116.9 points per game.

Heading into the season, Wall thought that the Wizards would be among the East's elite, but things clearly haven't turned out that way. And if Beal were to somehow join a stellar team in the Sixers with their new Big Three, it would only increase their chances of finishing on top of the Eastern Conference when the time comes down the road.

Brooks criticized his team following two consecutive home losses to the Brooklyn Nets and Portland Trail Blazers this past weekend.

The Wizards' struggles this season, however, have left management with no choice but to explore every option available to them.

Still images of the incident showed Welbeck's right ankle caught underneath him in an awkward position as his body went to ground. Welbeck has struggled with injuries in recent times but Iwobi hopes to see the Englishman back on the pitch as soon as possible.


Wall and Beal aren't the only ones on the trade block as the Wizards are reportedly drawing interest in Otto Porter Jr. In the aftermath of those respective spats, Wall directed an expletive at Brooks and Beal erupted about Grunfeld.

Blake Griffin has been having a tremendous season so far and Andre Drummond has been a solid wingman for him, but the current roster has a limited ceiling with the expectations being a low to a mid-level playoff team at best. There has been talk of players getting into it at practice, and now a report says point guard John Wall cursed out his head coach.

Beal, a 25-year-old 3-point threat averaging 21.5 points per game this year, is believed to be the most marketable player on the team.

Wall will also have a 15% trade kicker if he's traded during the contract. In addition, it would clear significant cap space, but the Wizards front office will have receive significant salary in return. Wall is a five-time All-Star who has been a favorite of ownership. The point guard is averaging 20.9 points, 7.9 assists and 2.0 steals through 16 games this season.
