1. Bradley Beal

There is no question that Bradley Beal is the most talented player that might be available in trades this offseason. The Washington Wizards have put off rebuilding in the hopes that he and John Wall would one day make them title contenders – but its’ time to accept their fate and blow this duo up.

Beal is the easiest player for the Wizards to trade. The two-time All-Star posted an incredible 30.5 points per game this season as he turned into one of the most unguardable scorers in the league. He was scorching hot in the final 22 games – averaging 35.8 points and scoring 40+ a total of 6 times.

Much like Zach Lavine – Beal would pose some lineup issues for the Warriors. He is much shorter than Lavine and is a far weaker defender. This puts a strain on the Dubs’ defense which has already taken a hit with the losses of Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala.

Nonetheless, the offensive output of a Beal, Curry and Thompson lineup would be hard to compete with. In a league where some of the best teams like Houston and Boston have massive gaps in their defense – the Warriors wouldn’t be too out of place with an undersized backcourt.
