John Wall Wants Out of Washington, Demands Trade from Team
The Washington Wizards openly admitted that they hope to build around Bradley Beal.
That did not sit well with superstar point guard John Wall, who is slated to make his return to the court after an extended absence this coming NBA season.
Now, Wall wants out.

According to numerous sources, Wall has demanded for a trade. Easier said than done, as the guard is coming off a string of series injuries and also happens to be the fourth-highest paid player in the league, making just over $41-million this upcoming season. Wall initially signed a four-year extension worth $170 million back in 2017.
He has since suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon while also undergoing hip surgery.
Crazier things have definitely happened in the NBA, but I suspect that if interest for a Russell Westbrook are lukewarm at best, I can only imagine what the vibe surrounding a John Wall could be on the market.
But then again, crazier things have happened.
