And with both confrontations occurring before today's news about the franchise's willingness to trade key players like Beal and Wall, it's easy to speculate about the part that they played in the decision.
For years, John Wall and Bradley Beal were always considered serious threats by the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference, as the Washington Wizards were always considered one of the top contenders to compete with.
But one thing is for sure any team that will land John Wall and Bradley Beal is truly lucky because there two all-stars will put a large impact on any team. Washington is 5-11 and underachieving this season. In addition, it would clear significant cap space, but the Wizards front office will have receive significant salary in return.
According to Wojnarowski's sources, the Wizards still prefer to build their roster around both players, but poor play among key teammates have hindered their trade value, making it hard to improve a roster with awful chemistry.
Wall is said to have apologized to both Brooks and his teammates.
Why would the Pistons be interested in trading for a high-end option like Wall or Beal?
Washington has Wall under contract through the 2022-23 season at an average rate of $42 million per year and Beal is signed through the 2020-21 season at an average clip of $25 million per season. "Complaining about shots, complaining about playing time, whatever it may be, we're anxious about our own s-t". Porter has a massive contract on the books, including three years, $81 million left. The 37% over the last three seasons sounds good, but he has gone from 40.4% to 33.9% from three-point range in that time.
