RUMOR: Celtics’ chances in trading for Bradley Beal, revealed
Bradley Beal’s future with the Washington Wizards is now in the spotlight, with recent reports indicating that he’s considering asking for a trade. One of his preferred destinations is said to be the Boston Celtics where he’ll get to play with Jayson Tatum.
According to Jason Dumars of Bleacher Report, joining the Celtics would not only reunite Beal with his childhood friend in Tatum but also get a chance to compete for a championship.

Now, it is important to note that Bradley Beal hasn’t asked for a trade yet. In fact, reports said that it’s only a possibility and he’s yet to make a decision. Moreover, the Celtics are not his only options if ever he wants to be traded, as he would also reportedly welcome going to the Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat or Philadelphia 76ers.
Of course, the Jayson Tatum connection is a big factor in Beal’s rumored desire to be traded to the Celtics. However, the Beantown team would probably need to part ways with their second All-Star in Jaylen Brown to make a Beal deal work.
It remains to be seen what Beal will decide to do regarding his future in the NBA, but there’s no doubt it will be intriguing what he can accomplish alongside Tatum in Boston.
