Charlotte is 8-8 on the season and is presently the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Wizards are 5-11 this season. They are presently the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference. Only the Top 8 teams would make the playoffs.

According to ESPN.com’s NBA Trade Machine, the Hornets could trade Nicolas Batum to the Wizards straight up for Beal. At this time; however, it is not clear who would be involved in a package to get Beal.

Beal is the most desirable trade asset the Wizards have. The former third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft has spent his entire seven-year career in Washington.

The 25-year-old St. Louis, Missouri native has made 16 starts this season. He is averaging 21.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 blocks in 33.8 minutes per game.
