Wizards fine Wall for yelling expletive at coach Brooks

"As the Washington Wizards' season spirals, the franchise has started to deliver teams an impression that every player on their roster - including All-Star guards John Wall and Bradley Beal - is available to discuss in trade scenarios, league sources told ESPN".

The outburst was said to be in response to Brooks and Wizards forward Jeff Green urging Wall to raise the level of intensity in practice.

Wall apologized to Brooks shortly after cursing him and to his teammates the next day, per Wojnarowski.

Two teams from opposing conferences with mirror records are clashing, when the Washington Wizards (5-11), looking to end a small losing streak, are hosting the red-hot Los Angeles Clippers (11-5), who have lost only once in their last eight games. Before things get really bad and their players' trade values dwindle as the losses pile up, the Wizards would be wise to consider moving their heavily-paid star players as soon as possible. Amid the slow start, trade rumors have begun centering around both John Wall and Bradley Beal. However, Wall responded back to Brooks, "F-- you", according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The dumpster fire in Washington D.C. that is the Washington Wizards got a little hotter Monday when it was reported that GM Ernie Grunfeld would listen for trade offers for anyone on the team. Beal, 25, is signed through the '20-21 season at an average rate of $25 million per season. He is now earning $38.2 million this season and a four-year contract extension will kick in next season that will see him earn an average of $42 million. Wall is under contract through 2021-22 and Beal's deal expires the year prior. The point guard is averaging 20.9 points, 7.9 assists and 2.0 steals through 16 games this season. Wall is a guy, when focused, who can lift up the entire team with his jet speed and his energy on the court.
