Tommy Sheppard could have stated the Wizards don’t have any drawback taking part in Bradley Beal at level guard, however that lacks context. It was a brief half of a bigger response, however the really feel was in spot minutes, not full time. Washington is searching for a beginning conventional defensive level guard. – 12:20 PM

The concept of ​​the Wizards buying and selling as much as 4 is attention-grabbing to me b/c it could value a ton (possible 3 1sts + extra) &, whereas I like Ivey as a prospect, he is 20 & provides no ensures.
Even when he is nice, it would take just a few yrs & Beal’s 29. Identical package deal may get you a confirmed star… – 10:12 AM

Extra on this storyline

Beal, who turns 29 subsequent week, is eligible to signal a five-year take care of Washington estimated within the $250 million vary in free company and the Wizards, based mostly on Sheppard’s ebullience in discussing all issues Beal and the possibility to lastly pair him with Kristaps Porziņģis in coaching camp, do not appear involved within the slightest about securing his signature. -via / June 21, 2022

I’ve heard a rumble or two in latest months from events hopeful of luring Bradley Beal away from Washington that Beal is thought for saying, in essence, that he desires to be the Dirk Nowitzki of the Wizards by way of taking part in just for the franchise that drafted him No. 3 general in 2012. -via / June 13, 2022

Orlando Magic: Chet Holmgren. As I wrote earlier this week, regardless of latest reporting, it is not a lock that the Magic choose Auburn’s Jabari Smith. The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor just lately reported that hissources are “not bought” on the rumors that Orlando has made up its thoughts, and I nonetheless imagine Holmgren matches the mould of what the Magic have a tendency to love from prospects. Holmgren, who seems to be large even when standing subsequent to NBA legends like David Robinson and Dirk Nowitzki, is an interesting prospect and I feel he’ll hear his title known as with the primary decide within the draft. -via For the Win / June 9, 2022

Dirk Nowitzki: Nice season. Pleased with the fellows! -via Twitter @swish41 / Might 27, 2022
