The Washington Wizards have been linked to Domantas Sabonis, opening up the question whether they should seriously pursue the Indiana Pacers star or not.
It has already been two months since the core of the Pacers have been put on the trading block. The asking price for Sabonis, Myles Turner and Caris LeVert does not come cheap, so other teams are challenged to formulate a package that would entice Indiana in pulling the trigger. The problem for the Wizards is that the Lithuanian big man is generating the most demand, and they might need to pay a hefty price to get him.
For what it’s worth, former NBC Sports Washington reporter Quinton Mayo reportedly that Bradley Beal gave a “ringing endorsement” for the organization to pursue Sabonis. After all, even if the Wizards have three talented centers and a surplus of forwards, none of them are as skilled as Sabonis.
With Spencer Dinwiddie and Raul Neto having trouble facilitating the offense, Sabonis is a tremendous secondary playmaker. With a player option for 2022-23 for Beal, Tommy Sheppard must surround the high-scoring guard with the assets that would put him in position to advance further in the playoffs.
