Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal comments how much talk there will be among team USA to potentially team up in the NBA
It is no secret that Bradley Beal has been unhappy for a while now in Washington. Despite being one of the best offensive players in the league, the player has been unable to experience any real success in the NBA.
The Wizards front office needs to take a lot of blame on this one. They have failed over and over again to put the right supporting cast around Beal. Even their best effort to do so in Russell Westbrook couldn’t take them past the first round.
Suffice to say, the 28-year-old’s patience is wearing thin. So, when he was asked questions regarding his future and discussions of it within team USA, let’s just say his response was not one Wizards fans would like to hear.
Bradley Beal consciously refused to deny possibly talking about teaming up with other players on Team USA, in the NBA
Yes, of course, it’s heartbreaking. But can you blame him?
Beal is now in the middle of his prime. And with the Wizards still looking unlikely to put a contender around him, this was only a matter of time anyway.
When the player was asked about how much talk there is of teaming up with other players in Team USA, here is what he said.
“I don’t know. Probably a lot.”
“Jayson and I have a special relationship and I’m looking forward to it.”

He was later asked how he felt to be playing alongside Jayson Tatum, who went to the same high school as Beal. He responded with this.
“To have two guys from the same high school on the same (USA) team… I don’t know if that’s ever happened.”
We know it’s still far-fetched, but there have been reports suggesting that Bradley Beal could join Tatum. After all, sources that the C’s are ready to hear trade offers for Jaylen Brown if they include either the Wizards star or Damian Lillard.
So, will this comment mean absolutely nothing? Or will it go on to become a hint towards what is set to happen in the next few months?
