Charlotte Hornets fans across the world have been drooling at the thought of Bradley Beal sporting a Hornets jersey ever since the news broke of the team inquiring about his availability in trades. It will be tough to pry Beal from Washington, but pairing Kemba Walker with another All-Star guard in the back court would be worth the troubles.

The Hornets seriously need a player that can take some of the offensive pressure off of Kemba Walker, which makes Beal a perfect fit. The sharp-shooter out of Florida is still only 25-years old, and is currently averaging 21.5 points this season.

It would be tough to deal a young player like Malik Monk, who was the 11th overall pick in 2017, but, you’ve got to take risks in this league. When it comes to trading for a player like Beal, the only player that should be untouchable in trade talks is Kemba Walker.

Even if you have to part ways with Miles Bridges, the high-flying rookie from Michigan State, it’s something you have to consider. It’s not every day that you get to add an All-Star to your team, so you must look at all the options here.

Nevertheless, seeing Beal in a Hornets jersey would be awesome. Fans will be following the drama in Washington very closely as the season progresses.
