The NBA season only ended a couple of days ago, but teams around the leagues have already been busy reshaping their organizations.

There have been quite a few coaching changes around the league.

The Phoenix Suns are already preparing to release Chris Paul and try to find his replacement.

The Dallas Mavericks have been at the center of some rumors centering around Kyrie Irving and LeBron James.

Nearly half of the top ten in this year’s draft is trying to offload their picks.

There have also been some big names rumored to be trade candidates.

For a little while, Damian Lillard was the big name in trade rumors, but it seems the Trail Blazers are intent on keeping him and trying to build a contender around him.

That leaves Bradley Beal and surprisingly Zion Willamson as the biggest names being linked to trade.

Today, there were some big updates on Beal’s trade options.

Earlier in the day it was revealed that the Miami Heat were going to pursue Beal thanks in part to the expectation that he’ll carry a lower price tag for a trade. Now it looks like they’ll have some competition from another top contender in the Eastern Confernce.

According to NBA insider Shams Charania, the Milwaukee Bucks are a potential dark horse to land Beal.

The Bucks already made one big change this offseason after a disappointing playoff exit, firing their head coach. Now it looks like the next big change might be a new star playing alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Khris Middleton currently has a player option for next season and it is unclear if he will be returning to the Bucks.

Bradley Beal could be a strong replacement for Middleton that would give the Bucks another scorer. If Middleton stays, the combination of him and Beal would allow them to better stretch the floor and keep the middle of the court open for Giannis.

Beal should have plenty of suitors this offseason and it looks like he could spark a competition between two of the East’s best teams.
