Washington's star backcourt of Bradley Beal and John Wall are clearly frustrated with the start, and both are reportedly no longer untouchable in trade discussions as the Wizards consider retooling their roster.
After Wall and his teammates had been challenged to raise their intensity in the practice by Brooks, Wall fired back and swore at Brooks, Wojnarowski reported.
"I'm not going to be naive to it, you know", said Beal, who saw the report.
Though Wall, the number one pick in the 2010 draft and a five-time all-star, is a favorite of Washington ownership, trading him away would be hard for financial reasons. Wizards have been very unstable so far this season and while Vegas odds give them a -1 spread, don't expect them to beat the odds as the Clippers will get away with the road win one way or another.

The Wizards snuck into the playoffs last season, a 43-39 campaign that finished with an eighth seed, but have tumbled out of the gate at just 5-11. Amid the slow start, trade rumors have begun centering around both John Wall and Bradley Beal. They are presently the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference. In addition, it would clear significant cap space, but the Wizards front office will have receive significant salary in return.
Los Angeles Clippers have a 11-5 record (10-6 against the spread) so far this season and are now tied with three more teams in the first place of the West. He will be under his new team's control for two more seasons after the 2018-19 season.
Wall and Beal once again are having fine seasons. He is now earning $38.2 million this season and a four-year contract extension will kick in next season that will see him earn an average of $42 million. The 28-year-old Wall is averaging 20.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 7.9 assists, while the 25-year-old Beal is averaging 21.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists.
Wall is a five-time All-Star.
