It’s expected that the discussion surrounding Bradley Beal and his potential trade away from the Wizards will ignite in the coming days. The shooting guard is poised to turn down the extension deal that the Wizards offered as he stands to gain more money if he hits free agency on 2021.

In addition to this, there are also speculations going around that Bradley Beal might request a trade due to the Wizards’ current situation. The team is likely going to hit the reset switch as John Wall is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles.

There’s also the fact that pairing Wall and Bradley Beal didn’t turn the Wizards into a title contender, something that team has been building towards for years. And now, another clue has surfaced on the web.

Is Bradley Beal moving to Magic City?

Bradley Beal’s recent Twitter activity suggests that he may be interested in joining the Miami Heat. When a fan posted that he can’t wait for Beal to start draining buckets in a Miami jersey, the 26-year-old liked the tweet.

Although this hardly counts as concrete evidence that Bradley Beal wants to take his talents to Magic City, it’s certainly is an interesting piece of information. This is especially true since there are rumors back in July claiming that Miami is also interested in acquiring the guard.

Bradley Beal eyed by the Boston Celtics

Whatever the case, we’ll likely hear more about this news come Oct. 21 since that’s the deadline for Bradley Beal signing the aforementioned extension deal. Of course, with Beal putting up stellar numbers in the previous season, there are multiple teams that are vying to pry him off the grip of the Wizards.

Among them is the Boston Celtics. The Celtics are expected to make a deep run in the 2019-2020 Playoffs, and adding Bradley Beal on their roster would certainly turn the team into an even scarier competitor. The team could put together a trade package involving Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward, and the Wizards might just let go of its core player. After all, Brown is an emerging talent that can fully develop just in time for Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant to come into their own, while Hayward can be used as a trade asset to accelerate the rebuilding phase.
