Beal won’t be on the only big name that is traded

Heading into the NBA Draft, with as much smoke that is surrounding the rumor mill, I predict that Beal won’t be the only big name that is moved. Another star will be traded at the NBA Draft. And there are certainly more than a few potential options. Off the top of my head, a few names that could be on the move are Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, Zach LaVine, Karl-Anthony Towns, Chris Paul, Deandre Ayton, John Collins, and Clint Capela.

These are all players that have found their names in the rumor mill and I expect one of them to be moved, at the very least. Maybe NBA Draft night becomes chaotic and we see multiple big moves. I find that hard to believe but I wouldn’t entirely discount that possibility.

The Beal move is just going to set the table for what could end up being a bigger move once the draft gets fully underway. There’s going to be at least one other team that decides to make the big move to go all-in. And it will send shockwaves through the NBA Draft night.
