There is a rumor going around that the Nets might want to go get Bradley Beal.
Bradley Beal may very well be one of the most underrated players in the entire NBA and it mostly has to do with the fact that he plays for the Washington Wizards. The Wizards have been abysmal as of late although Beal has been their one bright spot. He is currently averaging 30.5 points per game and is easily one of the most prolific scorers in the Eastern Conference right now. Of course, the Wizards are keen on keeping him but Beal has been wishy-washy on signing longterm.
According to Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News, there appears to be some heavy interest for Beal, coming from the Brooklyn Nets. Stars like Kyrie Irving have made it clear that the team could use some reinforcements for when he and Kevin Durant finally get to pair up next season. With this in mind, the Nets are rumored to be exploring ways to get Beal on their team, so that they can form a brand new Big 3.

A team with Beal, Irving, and Durant would certainly become title contenders instantly. These are some of the best offensive players in the league and the Nets would become one of the most formidable backcourts in the Eastern Conference.
Only time will tell whether or not this comes to fruition.
