There might be another Big 3 formed in the NBA ahead of next season. According to former NBA champion Andrew Bogut, Bradley Beal is trying to get to the Philadelphia 76ers.
He would join two superstars Joel Embiid and James Harden to form a Big 3. It is his 10th season in Washington for Beal who has spent his entire professional career with the Wizards.
The 28-year-old shooting is set to miss the remainder of the season due to a season-ending wrist injury. Over 40 games that he played this year Beal averaged 23.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game.
He has a player option in his contract this coming season which would keep him in Washington for another year for $36 million.

“I’ve heard a pretty big rumor … from some people that are pretty close to the situation in the NBA: Big three to Philly. Brad Beal is trying to get to Philadelphia in the offseason to team up with Harden and Embiid. Philly’s desperate, obviously, to try to get off Harris, anyway. They have been for a while. And I think they’re even more desperate now to free up that cap space somehow. It will most likely have to be a sign-and-trade with Philly. But don’t be surprised if a big three forms in Philly. That’s the word on the street.”
