Washington Wizards star shooting guard Bradley Beal is trying to embrace the grind.
Trade speculation has enveloped Beal in the past week, and it seemed to come to a head after he poured in 47 points in a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night. However, there is no indication Beal is prepared to demand a trade.
Adrian Wojnarowski said Thursday on The Jump he spoke to Beal’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, who informed Woj his client is focused on getting Washington’s season back on track:
“I talked to Brad’s agent and he told me that right now, Brad’s focus with the Wizards is turning this season around,” Wojnarowski said. “When he signed that extension, he knew there was going to be a period of growth.”
