Watching the Sixers dismantle that awful Wizards team last night made me really salivate over somehow trading for Beal. While the 76ers don't match up with Washington straight up, I think a three team deal might work. The Suns have been reported as being interested in Fultz. The Wizards are looking to dump salary. Maybe something like this could work in a couple weeks:
The Suns send Josh Jackson and Trevor Ariza to the Wizards The Wizards then waive Ariza.
The 76ers send Fultz and Korkmaz to The Suns.
The 76ers send Wilson Chandler, their first round pick plus the 2021 unprotected 1st rounder they got from the Suns to the Wizards.
The Wizards send Beal to the 76ers. The 76ers then sign the waived Ariza (it would be an under the table agreement).
Suns get two young players and get our of Ariza's salary. The Wizards, get a young SF, Chandler (who's contract runs out at the end of the year) and two first round picks. The 76ers would end up with Beal and Ariza essentially for Fultz, Korkmaz and Chandler. That would make them the favorites in the East and a legit championship contender.
