Report: Bradley Beal “would welcome joining” Philadelphia



Article Summary:

As the Sixers shop around Ben Simmons this offseason, Damian Lillard and Bradley Beal have been viewed as the only somewhat realistically available stars who would represent a clear talent upgrade for Philadelphia if Simmons was indeed traded away. Per Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, “Word has reached front offices around the league that Wizards All-Star guard Bradley Beal is considering requesting a trade prior to Thursday night’s [NBA draft].”

Even better for Sixers fans:

Beal does not have a proverbial list of preferred destinations, but it was mentioned by multiple sources that he would welcome joining teams such as Boston, Golden State, Miami or Philadelphia.

One could make the argument to push for Lillard over Beal, given the slight talent gap and Lillard having more years left on his current contract. You could see the framework of a deal where the Sixers get Beal, the Wolves get Simmons, and the Wizards get Maxey, and a bunch of draft assets/young players from Minnesota.
