Could a much-anticipated moment for Boston Celtics team building be at the franchise’s doorstep? If reports from Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer of Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal pondering whether to request a trade come to fruition in the form of the St. Louis native asking out of the capital city franchise, things might get very interesting for Celtics fans this offseason.
The lifelong friend of Jayson Tatum was hoping to play alongside his fellow Missourian in the Olympic Games before COVID derailed their moment, and Celtics fans had better hope that influences the Wizards guard to pressure his current front office to only deal him to Boston if they don’t want to see the team’s star wings split up to make such a move happen.
While the ties between Tatum and Beal make the two teaming up a compelling story, that doesn’t mean that Washington’s front office would see such a move as their best course of action, and there’s no guarantee such a request even gets made.
The sharpshooting Wisconsin product is reportedly also interested in joining Boston next season. https://t.co/dHmZqD8Luq
