John Wall Fined For Cursing At Scott Brooks: All-Star Leaving Washington Wizards?

John Wall was fined by the Washington Wizards for unloading on head coach Scott Brooks during a recent practice, according to a report.

Wall did apologize to Brooks shortly afterward, and to his teammates the following day, league sources said. There has been an obvious disconnect between the franchise point guard and his teammates as the Wizards have struggled early in the 2018-19 season, with a 5-11 record through their first 16 games. Washington's star backcourt of Bradley Beal and John Wall are clearly frustrated with the start, and both are reportedly no longer untouchable in trade discussions as the Wizards consider retooling their roster.

"We've got to just play with more enthusiasm, more effort, more energy", Brooks told reporters Sunday.

USA crude oil inventories drop slightly last week: API
US West Texas Intermediate ( WTI) crude futures, were up 70 cents, or 1.3 per cent, at US$54.13 a barrel. The worldwide benchmark fell as much as 5.1 percent to $63.36, the lowest since early March.

Brooks expressed his frustration this weekend after double-digit losses at home to the Brooklyn Nets and the Portland Trail Blazers.

Washington has made the playoffs in four of the last five seasons. Green, who has attempted to be a vocal leader within the Wizards locker room since signing with the team this past summer, challenged Wall, which led to the players exchanging words. Wall is under contract through 2021-22 and Beal's deal expires the year prior. That being said, Bradley Beal could be a very attractive acquisition for another team if the Wizards are happy with what they could get in return.
