Report: Suns also get F Isaiah Todd in Bradley Beal deal


The Phoenix Suns are getting forward Isaiah Todd from the Washington Wizards in the Bradley Beal deal, ESPN reported Monday

Todd, 21, has played in just 18 NBA games but his contract for 2023-24 is guaranteed at $1.8 million, per the report. Todd was selected No. 31 overall by Milwaukee in the 2021 draft and has averaged 1.6 points and 1.3 rebounds over 7.5 minutes played per game.

The Suns also are getting second-year guard Jordan Goodwin, who averaged 6.6 points and 3.3 rebounds in 62 games (seven starts) this past season. He played in just two games in 2021-22

The clubs are finalizing a trade that will send Beal from the Wizards to the Suns in exchange for veteran point guard Chris Paul, shooting guard Landry Shamet and multiple second-round draft picks and pick swaps

The Wizards are expected to flip Paul to another team, with the Los Angeles Clippers reportedly at the top of the list

Beal, who turns 30 this month, played in just 50 games (all starts) last season. He averaged 23.2 points, 5.4 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game and shot 36.5 percent from 3-point range. Injuries and multiple stays on the COVID-19 reserve list have limited Beal to just 90 games over the past two seasons.

In his 11-year career since the Wizards made him the third overall draft pick out of Florida in 2012, Beal has averaged 22.1 points, 4.3 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game over 695 games (661 starts). He was an All-Star in 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2020-21 and finished second in the NBA in scoring twice (30.5 points per game in 2019-20, 31.3 ppg in 2020-21)

Paul, 38, averaged 13.9 points, 8.9 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals across 59 starts for the Suns in 2022-23. He has career averages of 17.9 points, 9.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals in 1,214 games with the New Orleans Hornets (2005-11), Clippers (2011-17), Houston Rockets (2017-19), Oklahoma City Thunder (2019-20) and Suns (2020-23)

Paul led the NBA in assists just two seasons ago when he averaged 10.8 per contest in his second campaign with the Suns
