The Los Angeles Lakers win the championship in the bubble as they take down the Miami Heat in six games. In the last ten NBA Finals, LeBron James was featured nine times for a 4-5 record. So it’s time for the others to be on top as the Brooklyn Nets will be favored in the Eastern Conference to reach the NBA Finals once healthy. After acquiring Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving last year offseason Nets expecting to make a huge run. General Manager Sean Marks is willing to make a big move to create a super team in New York. The Nets can make a great trade to the Washington Wizards who want to get out of the hole. They missed the playoffs for two years in a row with John Wall missed a lot of games.
So this trade idea that can make the Brooklyn Nets got some edge against Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks, and Miami Heat while Washington Wizards want to start new and young guys.
Here’s a trade idea that could make sense for both camps.
Wizards receive Caris LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Nets 2020 16th pick.
Nets receive Bradley Beal.
With a healthy Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets could be a top-four team in the Eastern Conference. Add a guy who averages 30 points and 6 assists per game last season all career highs could put them at the top. Bradley Beal has a great season leading Washington Wizards without his buddy John Wall. But the two-time All-Star didn’t belong to All-Star weekend festivities and most of all he’s a snub to an All NBA team. With Beal on the Nets, he can be the second or third scorer for the team. The good thing about Bradley Beal is the capability to score either on or off the ball. The forward knows where to gets the ball and to fire a shot as he’s been great from that catch and shoot. Unlike Caris Levert and Spencer Dinwiddie that need the basketball on their hands to be effective. Bradley Beal a 38% shooter from the arc that could create on whatever he wants offensively. The former Florida Gators isn’t bothered by the pressure as he was known to take over most games in Washington.
For the Wizards to make this deal is the potential of Caris LeVert who’s playing in the same position as Kevin Durant. With him, in Nets uniform it could have a conflict at the end of the day that could cost chemistry issues. In Washington, LeVert can be a big-time player next to John Wall once get healthy. They can have great fun to make a playoff run in the Eastern Conference. It could make sense for the Wizards to play a great athlete based on his rookie extension. While Spencer Dinwiddie could come off the bench when John Wall is healthy. He’s a proven scorer with a go-to guy attitude in clutch moments. Either he can starts next to Wall as the two-guard. Both these guys have team-friendly contracts which means the Wizards can still offer a good player to play in Washington by paying great deals. Means with Dinwiddie, the Wizards point guard can save his body to be more healthy all season long.
