Rumor: Pelicans interested in trading for Wizards’ Otto Porter

  • NBA Rumors: Wizards Making John Wall, Bradley Beal Available For Trades

Turns out, Washington Wizards All-Star point guard John Wall isn't the only player to curse at head coach Scott Brooks this season.

After Wall and his teammates had been challenged to raise their intensity in the practice by Brooks, Wall fired back and swore at Brooks, Wojnarowski reported. However, Wall responded back to Brooks, "F-- you", according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Though Wall, the number one pick in the 2010 draft and a five-time all-star, is a favorite of Washington ownership, trading him away would be hard for financial reasons. What started as "don't freak out they just need to get Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward meshed into what they do" has become legitimate reason for concern because the Celtics can't get key boards, and that elite defense is not slowing their opponent's best scorer often enough. The asking price certainly won't be cheap since the Wizards know this is the one leverage they have, but luckily the Sixers are quite familiar when it comes to deal making since The Process isn't something that just happened to take place overnight.

The Wizards season is in a downward spiral.

"If all five of us give effort on that end, we'll be fine", Wall said about the defense.


Since the heated practice, the Wizards have lost two games to the Brooklyn Nets and Portland Trailblazers. While he can incite a team, the injury concerns and the fact he has a four-year, $139 million contract extension kicking in next season could scare some teams away from taking a chance on him.

At the same time, they are one of the league's worst defensive units, allowing 116.9 points per game, good for 29th in the league.

Wall, 28, is a five-time All-Star.

Washington has Wall under contract through the 2022-23 season at an average rate of $42 million per year and Beal is signed through the 2020-21 season at an average clip of $25 million per season.
