Celtics’ star Jayson Tatum puts up a shamrock emoji on a post highlighting Bradley Beal on the Warriors’ priority list, sparks rumors
The 2021 playoffs are done with. We saw the grand parade and celebrations in Milwaukee. It is time for teams to start making good on all their plans for the offseason. Not long ago, there was a loud noise coming from the Warriors’ camp. Apparently Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green want the Dubs to get a contender in exchange for their lottery picks.
However, the Warriors aren’t the only team looking to sign the 28-year-old guard. The Celtics, among other names, come at the top of the line as a competitor for Bradley Beal. Beal has expressed his wish of joining a team that has an established winning culture. The names on his list were the Warriors, the Celtics, the Sixers, and the Heat.
Is Jayson Tatum hinting that the Bradley Beal trade is a done deal?
In recent times, players on teams have as much of a role in convincing a player to ask for a trade, as the front office. Sometimes, the players have an even greater role. We saw the same when Kevin Durant joined the Warriors. Draymond Green and the rest of the Warriors had a major part in convincing Durant to come over. We saw the same when Anthony Davis made his way to join LeBron James and the Lakers. The same may be happening with Bradley Beal and the Celtics.
A recent Instagram post read that Bradley Beal is on top of the Warriors’ wishlist, should he opt out of Washington.

This could either mean everything or this could mean nothing. Considering the history between Tatum and Beal, it is safe to say that the Celtics have the upper hand in the priority list.
