What makes this development very surprising is the fact that Bradley Beal was reported to be extremely unhappy with the losing culture of the Washington Wizards. It was even speculated that Los Angeles was where the star wanted to go as he has recently made some real estate investment in the city.

With the LA Lakers' apparent interest in Bradley Beal now quashed by the player himself, the franchise would look at other options in the market. In this regard, it has been speculated that Chris Paul could be a potential third star who may be brought in by the Lakers.

Regardless of the LA Lakers situation, Washington Wizards fans will breathe a huge sigh of relief knowing that Bradley Beal has every intention to stay in Washington.
