John Wall says he wants to finish career with Wizards
On Tuesday, in the aftermath of the team’s private instability coming to light, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall reiterated his desire to stay to put while fellow all-star Bradley Beal indicated his hope to move on from last week’s fiery practice.
Wall said they apologized for what happened at a recent tense practice.
“It’s something we’ve put past us,” Wall said. “We talked about it, apologized about it, kept it at that.”
It was first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN that the Wizards are considering blowing things up thanks to their dysfunction and 5-11 start, which would mean Wall and Bradley Beal would both be on the trade market.
The Wizards were expected to compete for a playoff spot this season, but the season has been a mess. Despite the struggles, though, Washington is only three games back of the eighth seed, which is held by the Charlotte Hornets.
The Wizards haven’t had any serious discussions with any teams about Wall or Beal, but that could change if things continue to go south. Washington isn’t going to make a deal just to make a deal, but a shakeup seems to be in order.
As the trade deadline nears, it will be interesting to see if any team offers up significant assets to get Wall, who recently signed a supermax contract extension and could be tough to trade because of the massive deal.
