Bradley Beal's Agent Addresses Trade Rumors


It appears the Bradley Beal trade rumors aren't going anywhere anytime soon as the Washington Wizards shooting guard's name continues to make the rounds of NBA insiders. 

Today Marc Berman of ESPN made mention the Wizards are likely to eventually trade Beal, and the New York Knicks are monitoring the situation very closely.

While NBA executives and Insiders alike think Beal is getting traded at some point, Beal's agent had heard enough and had this to say on the matter:

He’s an incredibly loyal guy, and he wants to always feel like he’s done everything he can to help something or someone be successful. It’s the way he was raised and what his values are based upon. It’s ingrained in him. It’s what makes him, in my mind, so unique. He’s all about the right things. It’s the team that drafted him, the team that’s invested in him, and he desperately wants to make them a championship contender. He wants to make it happen. That’s the way he is. He’s not looking for the easy way out. He challenges himself. The evolution of his game speaks volumes about how committed he is and how hard he works.

The Wizards are 6-16 on the season, although are only a few games back of playoff positioning in the eastern conference. If they don't make the playoffs, the offseason is going to be very interesting in Washington.
