Former No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft Andrew Bogut, thinks Washington Wizards forward, Bradley Beal wants to join forced with James Harden and Joel Embiid to form a new Big 3 in the NBA.

Speaking on his Rogue Bogues podcast Bogut says he has heard a pretty big rumor regarding Beal from people pretty close to the situation.

"Big 3 to Philly," Bogut said.  "Brad Beal is trying to get to Philadelphia in the offseason to team with Harden and Embiid. Philly is desperate to try and get off (Tobias) Harris anyway - they have been for awhile and are even more desperate now to free up that cap space somehow.  It mist likely would have to be a sign-and-trade with Philly, but don't be surprised if a Big 3 forms in Philly - that's the word on the street."

Obviously this would be a huge and makes plenty of sense considering the reporting around Harris at the trade deadline. The Sixers were looking to move Harris at the deadline and it has been reported that the deal will look to move him this offseason.

“I’ve talked to league executives because I’m asking league executives a lot about Philly and everyone’s seen them for just a brief period of time,”Brian Windhorst of ESPN said on his Hoops Collecrtive Podcast. “But they’re already speculating what Tobias Harris trades they might look at this summer.”

There has been some speculation that Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey might pursue another star and Beal certainly fits that description.

If Beal is watching Harris in this edition of the Sixers offense, he must be salivating at the amount of open looks Harris has been getting since the arrival of Harden.
