Washington Wizards superstar Bradley Beal can’t avoid his name being linked trade rumors, but his agent is making it clear that Beal has no interest in leaving the Wizards this season, pointing to his loyalty, and not wanting to quit.
“He doesn’t want to quit on something,” Beal’s agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports & Entertainment said, according to Yahoo Sports. “He’s an incredibly loyal guy, and he wants to always feel like he’s done everything he can to help something or someone be successful. It’s the way he was raised and what his values are based upon. It’s ingrained in him. It’s what makes him, in my mind, so unique. He’s all about the right things.”
The remarks won’t likely do much to slow or stop the rumors this season, especially as Beal continues to lead the NBA in scoring, by averaging 32.8 points per game this season for Washington, who have struggled mightily despite his, and Russell Westbrook’s efforts.
