Paul has received interest from many teams, such as the Bucks, Knicks, and now, Lakers.

With LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Lakers are one piece away from building a “super team”.
Throughout the year, the Lakers struggled to find a solidified third scorer.
The answer to their problem may be Bradley Beal.
Recently, on Snoop Dogg’s appearance on FS1’s morning talk show, Undisputed, he sparked rumors that Beal might be on his way to the Lakers after purchasing a new home in the LA area.
“Aye you know Bradley Beal just moved to LA”, Snoop referenced on the show when discussing the future of the Lakers.
Beal’s wife, Kamiah Adams-Beal had an intriguing response.

The Lakers have many moveable pieces, most notably, Kyle Kuzma.
Kuzma has been involved in many trade rumors since LeBron’s arrival in LA.
Beals’ Wife, Kamiah, Is From Los Angeles
One reason as to why Kamiah is giving the stamp of approval for this trade to happen is because she is from the area.
After the Lakers won the championship, she sent out a tweet congratulating the team.

There is no denying that the Lakers were destined to win this NBA Title after the tragic passing of Kobe.
Now, Beal purchasing a LA home is certainly cause for speculation.
But, I am not sure how much to read into this.
Beal signed a 5 year, 127 million deal with the Washington Wizards.
He has one year left on the deal.
His average salary is about $27 million, so he does have a little extra money in the budget to purchase another home.
Whatever it may be, it will be interesting to see how this NBA offseason plays out.
Many teams will try to make a splash to improve their roster to compete with the Lakers.
While the Lakers are looking to improve and build a super team.
