Bradley Beal Next Team Odds: Decision Time Nears For Wizards Star

Bradley Beal Next Team Odds: Decision Time Nears For Wizards Star

No bigger name is guaranteed to be on the NBA free agency market this summer than Bradley Beal. The Washington Wizards shooting guard had his season cut short in 2021-22 but is expected to be 100% and coming off consecutive 30ppg seasons. 

The Wizards are prepared to make the max offer allowed by NBA rules, a deal that no other team can match. But Beal will still dip his toe into free agency, and he’ll get courted hard. Beal has until June 29 to decide on the player option that would pay just over $36 million for 2022-23. 

On Tuesday, it was reported that Beal had declined his Wizards player option for next season. To which Beal responded...

Amid the uncertainty, Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his hypothetical NBA odds as to where Beal ends up for next season.

It’s no secret the Miami Heat have taken a liking to Beal. Miami likely has more trade capital than any other team on this list, and its near-return to the NBA Finals could spark the “win-now” mentality to make a big move in a sign-and-trade deal. 

The Boston Celtics, despite being set at the wing with talents Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown leading the team to the NBA Finals, and the Brooklyn Nets, with Kevin Durant and, for now, Kyrie Irving, are also quite interested in the marquee potential free agent. 

The Los Angeles Lakers inquired about Beal last season when they were assembling their latest super-team version. They instead added Russell Westbrook, and that didn’t work. When it comes to blockbusters, the Lakers are always in the conversation. 

The Philadelphia 76ers did their due diligence around the trade deadline when they were looking to acquire a star player to play alongside Joel Embiid. They ultimately dealt for James Harden, but the offseason is here, and Harden is mulling a player opt-out of his current deal. The Warriors inquired as well.

The Atlanta Hawks reportedly would love to add Beal to their young core led by Trae Young. 

Only five teams are projected to be in the plus money in salary-cap space for the offseason, though none may be enticing enough to get Beal out of D.C. Would Beal leave a max contract on the table to instead sign as a free agent for the Magic, Pistons, Pacers, Spurs or Trail Blazers? 

San Antonio is probably the tastiest destination with a young core of standouts, including All-Star Dejounte Murray. 

For his part, Beal recently told The Athletic that he has made a decision on his playing future, but he refused to give details out of respect for his current deal with the Wizards. We should find out soon enough...
