Don’t look now, but Washington has won 3 straight games since John Wall has returned. Also, rookie Brad Beal has been playing better too. But this may not be the backcourt of the future for the Wiz. Is Beal being offered for Rudy Gay?
Wizards rookie guard Bradley Beal has not been mentioned in trade discussions with the Memphis Grizzlies involving swingman Rudy Gay, according to Beal’s agent, Mark Bartelstein. The Memphis Commercial-Appeal reported Monday that the Grizzlies have ‘entertained’ an offer from the Wizards that would include Beal in a larger package.’I’ve talked to both teams. There is absolutely nothing to it,’ Bartelstein said. ‘The Wizards have made it very clear that they are not moving Brad Beal.’ Multiple league sources confirm that the Wizards have spoken with Memphis about prying away Gay, the team’s leading scorer, with one adding that Washington is ‘pushing for’ his services.
