Wizards willing to listen on Wall, Beal

The days of Bradley Beal and John Wall sharing Washington's backcourt may be numbered.

The Washington Wizards are off to a awful start this season, and the team's front office may not be willing to be patient to see if things will turn around.

The Wizards have started the season with a disastrous 5-11 record and they may be open to moving any player on their team, including Beal and guard John Wall, according to an earlier report from ESPN .

While the team would prefer to retain both Wall and Beal, they are at least open to hearing offers for the pair, which was something they were reticent to do in the past, including in discussions for the likes of Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler.

Wall and Beal once again are having fine seasons. Beal is likely the more attractive piece, as he is not only younger than Wall, but also the more polished offensive player on a friendlier contract.

That's a big deal because previously it was understood that Beal was off limits, but as things get more desperate in the nation's capital, it's becoming more and more clear they may need to simply blow it all up.

Wall's contract extension starts in 2019-20 and will average $42 million annually for four years. However, making money work is tricky, especially if the goal is to reset things for the immediate future in Washington and have the opportunity, should they so choose, to make a run at free agents this summer. Though he's recognized as one of the premier athletes at the point guard position today, there are questions as to just how much value he holds.

"Washington had hopes that forwards Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre could be centerpieces of deals that could return an impactful third star, but those players have fetched minimal interest on the market", Wojnarowski reported. Wall is a five-time All-Star who has been a favorite of ownership.
