The Washington Wizards gain a legit scoring option from Miami

While this doesn’t immediately seem like a lot for the Wizards, they would be gaining two first round picks as well as a second-round selection. That is actually pretty fair value for the three-time All-Star.

When comparing every player involved in this potential trade idea, Bradley Beal is the most efficient scorer, best defender (somehow), and the best playmaker. He is easily the best player, however as in most cases, that also means that he is the highest paid player of every player in the trade.

How would the Washington Wizards benefit from this trade?

Tyler Herro is six years younger than Beal and is a better shooter from beyond the three-point arc. However, he is a far less diverse scorer as his skills around the rim and in the midrange are far less refined than the former All-Star.

Even though he is less refined as a scorer, Herro has always seemed as if he could be a leading scorer for a team. His handle mixed with his jumper allows him to slice apart a defense. If he grows as a scorer inside the arc, he could be one of the elite scorers in the league.

Add the elite shooting of Robinson and the draft capital and it’s clear that the Wizards do gain more than they lose.
