I believe the Boston Celtics are the most realistic and biggest threat to land Bradley Beal if he wants a change of scenery. The Celtics check a lot of boxes for Beal. Boston is a big-time market with a franchise with vast basketball history.

They also have a legit superstar that Beal could team up with and automatically be considered a contender in the Eastern Conference. Plus, the Celtics have draft assets and players that would help them negotiate a sign-and-trade deal.

Ultimately, I believe there’s a very real chance that this is finally the year that Beal elects to move on from the Wizards. And if he does, he’s going to do it quietly and respectfully. I’d be shocked if it happens any other way.
