Bradley Beal has made it clear he wants to leave the Wizards, per veteran NBA journalist Chris Sheridan. 

Bryan Oringher, the Wizards' former video coordinator, claims he "confirmed" Sheridan's report with a "strong source."

Trade rumors and speculation surrounding the likes of Beal and John Wall have swirled since last week's "Woj bomb" that Washington is willing to consider trade offers for their two All-Star guards. Beal also allegedly called out team president Ernie Grunfeld at a recent practice that got very heated.

Unsurprisingly, Beal's agent denied the reports his client wants out of Washington. 

As for Beal himself, he played like a man committed to his team in Monday's 135-131 overtime win over the Rockets. He scored 32 points and played some strong late-game defense on reigning league MVP James Harden, who had 54 for Houston. 

After the game, Beal denied Sheridan's report, too, calling it "nonsense."

The Wizards have now won three of their last four, and if this short spell of success continues, there's little chance Grunfeld and Washington part with arguably their best on-court asset in Beal.
