This season the Wizards have been extremely dysfunctional. From the getgo, it seems as if Wall and Bradley Beal decided that they would not like to coexist, and it really hurt the team. The offense became slow and had very little movement. It was all isolation shots and oftentimes, forced offense. There was no flow. Defensively, there was minimal effort.

Dysfunction of this sort led Ernie Grunfeld to put all of his players on the trading block. At first, he only traded away Austin Rivers and Kelly Oubre. But Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, and John Wall still remain. However, since Wall is getting surgery, the team will not be able to trade him elsewhere.
