The Nets reportedly want a third star to pair with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving as the team prepares to make a championship run next season. In January, Irving told the media, “It’s glaring that you’re missing a big piece here.”
Beal recently stated that he wants to retire a Wizard, despite the team failing to make the playoffs each of the last two seasons.
In February, Beal became the first player in NBA history to score at least 50 points on consecutive days and have his team lose both games. Washington had a 5-17 record this season in games where Beal scored 40 or more points.
