Report: Bradley Beal To Make Decision on Trade Request This Week

Bradley Beal has done nothing in the past but affirm his commitment to the Washington Wizards. According to a report, that may be changing. Sources in league front offices say Beal is considering making a trade request, and his decision will come before the NBA Draft this Thursday.

His thinking is felt to be far enough along, that he already has preferred destinations, according to many reports.

Pairing Beal with Celtics superstar  Jayson Tatum is certainly an interesting one. But would Boston be willing to trade Jaylen Brown to make this happen? 

As for Golden State, we reported yesterday that the Warriors Big 3 have already made it clear that they would like Beal to join forces with them. The Warriors have two picks in the draft, Nos. 7 and 14, plus last year's No. 2 pick James Wiseman to offer. 

Toronto, as we've heard, is very active, and today we learned that they are apparently willing to offer Pascal Siakam in a deal. 

Expect a lot of other teams to join in the bidding however, as the report cites one front office type declaring, "Beal's the guy right now," one assistant general manager said. "The one guy that could be available, that could help you win the whole thing."
