A blockbuster trade may be on the horizon in the NBA, and it involves one prominent former Kentucky Wildcat.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, after a 5-11 start to the season, the Washington Wizards have made every player on their roster available in trade talks.
Yes, even John Wall, the team’s No. 1 draft pick back in 2010.
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 for discussion in trade scenarios, league sources told ESPN.
After news broke that Wall and former Gator Bradley Beal were available, things reportedly got a little feisty in practice. The Athletic’s Shams Charania says that today’s practice was “volatile” including verbal altercations with upset players.
Sources on @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium: The Washington Wizards had a volatile practice within recent days, with verbal altercations among players and an exasperated Bradley Beal saying toward team officials: "I've been dealing with this for seven years."

A few hours later, Wojnarowski again came out with a report regarding Wall, this time giving more in-depth details on what went down during practice, which includes Wall being fined by the Wizards.
Wall apologized to Brooks in the minutes after cursing him, and apologized to his teammates the following day, league sources tell ESPN. https://t.co/iih3oUT55D

Dropping f-bombs on your head coach might be a good indicator that it’s time to make some changes.
