The Washington Wizards are focused on their next starting point guard. With all indications that Bradley Beal is signing his super max deal to stay in DC, finding him a new point guard is next on the list.
It hasn’t been an easy task for the Wizards over the past two years. They’ve gone through three different starting point guards over the past three seasons, ranging from John Wall to Russell Westbrook to Spencer Dinwiddie. All three ended up being traded.
Washington has pinpointed a handful of veteran point guards such as Malcolm Brogdon, Delon Wright and Tyus Jones. According to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, there’s at least one All-Star the Wiz have their eye on — Dejounte Murray of the San Antonio Spurs. While bringing Murray to DC remains a long shot, they’ve made a few calls to the Spurs front office:
The Wizards are one of the teams that have inquired about Dejounte Murray in San Antonio, sources said, but Washington doesn’t appear to have a capable offer to land the Spurs All-Star.
The Wizards have most of their future picks and some young plays in Kyle Kuzma, Deni Avdija and recently drafted lottery pick Johnny Davis. But it remains to be seen if they will have enough powder or if they would be willing to part with enough picks to land the talented 25-year-old.
