Bradley Beal is rumored to be on the trade market, and it seems like the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors are making strong pushes for him.
As it stands, the Wizards star has been carrying some severely bad teams for the larger part of his career. Sure, the Wizards have seen the postseason multiple times during Beal’s time, but they’ve never gotten to that next level or surrounded Beal with the proper team to be a genuine title threat.
As a result, it’s been speculated that the Washington supertar could be demanding a trade very soon, seeking greener pastures among better contenders.

Bradley Beal More Likely To Join The Celtics Than The Warriors
It’s unclear at this point what kind of a trade package it’s going to take to get the Wizards superstar. Beal had himself an incredible season last year. He averaged a ridiculous 31.3 points per game while making the All-Star game and the All-NBA third team.
He’s definitely going to make whatever teams he joins much better as he’s one of the top shooting guards in the league right now. Rumors have been floating around that the Golden State Warriors could make a hard push for Beal, but it seems like the Celtics have a higher chance.
Kevin O’Connor explained on a podcast why he thinks Beal will team up with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown in Boston over Steph Curry and Klay Thompson and the Warriors.
Beal joining either of those teams would be an incredible storyline to follow. On the Warriors, he’d be teamed up with the top two shooters in the league and the person who beat him out for the scoring title in Steph Curry. The Warriors would boast an offensive trio like none other in the league with all three ready to go off at any moment.
With the Celtics, Beal would play a complementary role to Brown and Tatum who would occupy the forward positions. He could turn into the lead facilitator for the Celtics team, driving the offense and setting up scoring chances for Tatum and Brown, a role he isn’t known for playing but could take on.
