The 25 NBA Trades We Need To See Before Next Season

24. Bradley Beal — Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn Nets receive: G Bradley Beal

Washington Wizards receive: G Spencer Dinwiddie, C DeAndre Jordan, G Garrett Temple, Nets 2022 First-Round Pick

With the Wizards stuck in mediocrity — at best — and the Nets in need of making the most of the Kevin Durant/Kyrie Irving era, this trade makes sense for both teams. Brooklyn won’t be the only team vying for Beal’s services, as the sharp-shooter is an ideal fit for numerous contenders. However, few teams have both the assets and determination to make a trade happen.

Putting Beal alongside Durant and Irving would instantly propel Brooklyn into championship contention. One of the best shooters in the league, Beal would give the Nets a third dynamic scorer who is capable of creating his own shot. Brooklyn’s ability to spread the floor would terrorize the East. Dinwiddie and a future first-round pick would be the best part of Washington’s return, and Jordan would provide decent production while the Wiz continue their rebuild.
