When Bradley Beal heard the rumors of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving wanting to play with him in Brooklyn, the Wizards star admitted that he was flattered.
In a story by ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan, Beal said it was an “unbelievable feeling” to know that the Nets have had internal discussions about trading for him.
“To me, I look at it as a sign of respect, that I’ve been doing good things and guys want to play with me.
“That’s an unbelievable feeling. When you hear that Kyrie and KD want you, s—, that’s amazing. At the same time, you don’t know how much there is to it, or how easy it would be to do.”
Beal, who recently stated that he wants to retire a Wizard, said he wants to see what he and a healthy John Wall can do together.
Before the hiatus, Beal got a chance to observe Wall at practice. “I was thinking, ‘Wow! He’s back. We’ve missed that,'” Beal told ESPN.
