Green to Washington

The Washington Wizards have not looked good this season, and without John Wall, it might get even worse. If they do this deal, they’ll be giving up on this season and completely buying into John Wall and the 2019-2020 season.

Beal is averaging a career-high 24.2 points per game this season, and on the Warriors, while that number may dip, we see a more efficient Beal take form. Without Wall, he’s taken his game to the next level, shooting over. 47% from the field. Beal is one of the league’s most underrated stars.

However, on a franchise in disarray, Beal will eventually want out. For Washington, they could deal Beal while he’s still young and has years left on his contract. While they have Beal locked up for a few more seasons, if they can’t get their act together, they’ll be watching him leave in free agency.

Draymond Green could bring the grit back to the Wizards. In 2019, the team would have John Wall at full strength, Draymond Green and a top pick in the 2019 draft to work with. That team should be able to put in some work in the Eastern Conference.

Given his contract, the Wizards might want more, and the Warriors, if they want yet another superstar, would pay the steep price.
