Report: Hawks could “get in the mix” for Bradley Beal if he requests trade from Wizards

Article Summary:

Monday morning, Fred Katz, who covers the Washington Wizards for The Athletic, reported that if Wizards star guard Bradley Beal were to ask for a trade ahead of this week’s NBA Draft, the Atlanta Hawks would be among teams that could get “In the mix”. The 28-year-old has a player option to become a free agent after the 2021-22 season, so any club trading significant assets for him will likely want Beal to sign an extension upon being traded.

Beal won’t be eligible for a full max extension until six months after being traded, but he could sign on for an additional year as soon as he’s moved.

Katz provided some optimism that Beal may not request a trade from Washington in the piece as well stating that the Wizards remain set on keeping him unless he requests a trade, which he has yet to do.
