Wizards fine Wall for verbal barrage

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski says Wall directed a verbal barrage onto Brooks after being challenged in practice to raise his and the team's intensity.

However, Wall did not take too kindly to it and said "f-- you" to Brooks. Previously neither guard had been included in trade talks and Washington's preference, per Wojnarowski, remains reshaping the team around Wall and Beal.

Things are rough right now for the Wizards and with it now being public that any one of their players could be moved, expect things to get even worse.

At 5-11 the Wizards are now sitting in 11th place in the Eastern Conference and after a weekend of back-to-back home losses, Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Wizards are willing to consider trades for anyone on their roster.

Wall and Beal aren't the only ones on the trade block as the Wizards are reportedly drawing interest in Otto Porter Jr. They're 5-11 through 16 games and 2.5 games out of the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference.

Carragher outlines Liverpool's best chance of winning title
The Newcastle icon scored a stunning 260 goals in 441 Premier League appearances, a record that will surely live on for some time. In the last match he played only for 30 minutes. "I watched the game and Liverpool struggled a lot", Mateo Kovacic said.


The Wizards clearly have not gotten off to the kind of start that they'd hoped.

Wall, 28, is now under contract with the Wizards through the 2022-2023 season at an average annual rate of $42 million.

Since the heated practice, the Wizards have lost two games to the Brooklyn Nets and Portland Trailblazers. They have the second-worst defense in the National Basketball Association, as the team is giving up a whopping 116.9 points per game. Porter has a massive contract on the books, including three years and $81 million left. What further complicates moving Wall is the inclusion of a 15 percent trade kicker in his deal. Wall is a guy, when focused, who can lift up the entire team with his jet speed and his energy on the court.

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.
