According to Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer, the Los Angeles Lakers are interested in acquiring the Washington Wizards star guard Bradley Beal:
“The one name that I’ve heard recently is Bradley Beal as another guy that they want,” O’Connor reported on The Void podcast. “I’m not sure if the interest is as mutual. You know Beal, it seems like Miami would be more of the threat to take him away from Washington. I don’t think you can also rule out Boston either because of his relationship with Jayson Tatum, but the Lakers are trying to angle for some moves like that using the Russ expiring and the ’27 and the ’29 firsts.”
Beal played in 40 games last season after injuring his wrist midway through the season. He averaged 23.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game.
