The Wizards have started the season with a disastrous 5-11 record and they may be open to moving any player on their team, including Beal and guard John Wall, according to an earlier report from ESPN .
Washington coach Scott Brooks also criticized his team’s effort after back-to-back losses to the Nets and Trail Blazers last weekend.
“We’ve got to just play with more enthusiasm, more effort, more energy,” Brooks told reporters Sunday. “It’s embarrassing.”
Beal, who made his first All-Star team last season, has spent his entire career with Washington. He has averaged a team-high 21.5 points per game in 2018-19.
The Wizards will return to the court when they host the Clippers on Tuesday.
