Washington Wizards (6-10)
The Washington Wizards were two wins away from the Eastern Conference Finals just two seasons ago.
And if John Wall hadn’t have gotten hurt they might have gotten there. Now there are trade rumors about Wall — fueled by his admitted dislike for Bradley Beal — and the Wizards have started out slowly again this time with new head coach Scott Brooks.
The Wall-Beal experiment appears to have run its course. The constant injuries to Beal and rumored jealously from Wall over Beal’s new $128 million contract has perpetuated the need to make a change.
It’d be different if they were winning, but they have one of the league’s best point guards and they’re losing with him. Wall is signed through the 2018-19 season so they’ll be in no rush, and they don’t necessarily need to move him.
