The trade window is about to close in about a month and a half and the rumor mill in the NBA is at its peak.
Many teams are looking for the missing piece to make a strong playoff run, while others are at a crossroads and still weighing their moves.
One of those teams is Danny Avdia's Washington.
The Wizards are trying to win as much as possible, as evidenced by the huge contract they gave Bradley Beal this summer, but right now they are ranked only 12th in the East and rebuilding is definitely an option they should consider in their situation.
In "Bleacher Report" they gave some advice to those teams whose futures are uncertain, and suggested that the Wizards first of all give more extensive credit to the youngsters: "There are many players on the roster who were selected in the top 15 in the draft - Danny Abediah, Roy Hachimura, Johnny Davis and Corey Kispert - But we still don't know how good they can really be. Their roles are unstable and 'bury' them behind veteran players who have not helped their development. Giving youngsters a wide role is the best way to know what they are worth. They urgently need rebuilding, with Or without Bill."

Regarding the star, who this summer signed a contract of more than a quarter of a billion dollars for the next five seasons, they wrote: "Bill and the team have to decide if staying is the best solution for both parties. Bill was given a veto clause on trades and he could be the missing piece for teams aiming for the playoffs like Toronto, New York or Miami, but the Wizards will receive several draft picks and players in return."
Also, in the article, the Wizards were called on in the coming weeks to trade two of the team's most prominent players - Kyle Kuzma and Kristaps Porzingis: "No matter what is decided with Bill, Washington should make it a priority to move them to the highest bidder. They can decide whether to become free agents this summer , and Kuzma almost certainly will."
