The Phoenix Suns’ star power just took a momentous leap.
Per The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Suns have officially traded for superstar guard Bradley Beal.
BREAKING: The Washington Wizards are trading three-time All-Star Bradley Beal to the Phoenix Suns for Chris Paul, Landry Shamet, a handful of second-round picks, and multiple pick swaps, league sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.

The deal will see Chris Paul and Landry Shamet in the swap, along with a number of second round draft picks and pick swaps.
The Suns, along with the Miami Heat, had become finalist to acquire Beal recently.
With Beal in the fold, the Suns’ salary cap issues will become more problematic. Dealing Deandre Ayton almost seems imperative now for Phoenix.
In the meantime, Beal joins a talented star duo of Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. Together, they will form one of the more lethal trios in the league.
