Bradley Beal isn't worth including unless he asks for out. Now isn't the time for the Washington Wizards to make the call on his behalf, either. His three-point clip is at an all-time low, and he's not getting to the foul line nearly as often.
Top-shelf offers probably won't wow the Wizards with Beal's free agency coming up. This summer's cap-space landscape is also so finite they should be able to broker a sign-and-trade that brings back satisfactory value if he's looking for the exit.
Cutting the cord on Spencer Dinwiddie intrigues. Too many of his best moments have come without Beal, and his shooting percentage plummets when they play together. But the Wizards are too thin on point-of-attack offense to settle for bottom-dollar packages.
Montrezl Harrell is headed for free agency, and Washington has already extended Daniel Gafford. That's not cause for jettisoning the Sixth Man of the Year candidate. The Wizards cannot angle for a playoff run without his rim pressure.
Davis Bertans isn't a surefire answer. His gravity is imperative to opening the middle of the floor, and he's banging in 41 percent of his triples since Dec. 1. But the Wizards' effective field-goal percentage has actually declined with him on the floor, and his one-positionality caps his floor time.
Minutes at the 4 will be even harder to come by when Rui Hachimura returns. And frankly, Washington shouldn't be paying Bertans nearly $50 million over the next three years to be a ninth or 10th man.
