REPORT: Suns Closing In On Trade For Bradley Beal, Creating New Big 3 With Durant And Booker In Blockbuster Deal

Oh, man. This stings as a Miami Heat fan.

The Phoenix Suns are closing in on a trade for three-time All-Star guard Bradley Beal, finalizing a deal with the Washington Wizards in a package that will reportedly see Chris Paul, Landry Shamet and multiple second-round picks be sent to D.C. (as well as a picks exchange), according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

It could take a few days for the trade to be completed, but Beal is headed to Phoenix to create a new Big 3 with Kevin Durant and Devin Booker, according to Woj’s report.

One reason why it could take some time for the deal to get finalized is because it’s allowing Washington to attempt a three-way trade to ship Paul to a contender, according to ESPN. If no trade is done, Paul and the Wizards could then discuss a contract buyout, making CP3 a free agent.

BREAKING: The Washington Wizards are finalizing a trade to send All-Star G Bradley Beal to the Phoenix Suns, sources tell ESPN. Beal’s waiving his no-trade to form a new Big 3 with Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. Teams are still working thru framework, but Beal is headed to Suns.
