The Wizards are reportedly making all players available in trade discussions, including All-Star guards John Wall and Bradley Beal, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Per Wojnarowski, Washington is not actively shopping either member of its star backcourt and prefers to "reshape the team" around the pair. However, offloading other members of the roster has been difficult due to poor play that's ultimately limited their trade value. Forwards Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre, specifically, have been garnered "minimal interest" among teams.

WOO: Should the Wizards Trade John Wall?

The Wizards are currently 5-11, fourth place in the Southeast Division.

Wojnarowski additionally reports that Wall and Beal were held out of past discussions surrounding potential deals for Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler.

According to Spotrac, Beal's contract runs through the 2020-21 season, with caps hits of $27 million and $28.7 million each of the next two years. Wall's contract extension will average $42 million annually over the next four years, per Wojnarowski.
