Wall fined for cussing out Brooks at heated Wizards practice

The discord in the organization has been obvious, but instances like these may have been the nail in the coffin as the Wizards have struggled through their early season.

The Clippers were without second-leading scorer Danilo Gallinari, who was ill.

Following the Wizards' latest indifferent performance that resulted in a loss, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday that Washington's management has signaled to other teams "an impression that every player on their roster" could be available for trade discussions.

The situation in the capital became even more toxic when Wall turned on coach Scott Brooks, for which he has been fined an undisclosed amount, according to ESPN. Wall then yelled "f- you" to Brooks, according to multiple reports.

Since the heated practice, the Wizards have lost two games to the Brooklyn Nets and Portland Trailblazers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and JR Smith part ways
But he doesn't intend to end his tenure with the team that way. "And I'm not on the team", the Lakers forward added. He reiterated Monday that he isn't interested in being a part of what the Cavaliers are doing.

The Wizards more than likely will not part way with either, but if they get an offer they can not refuse, the Wizards' front office will more than likely send one or both on their way. "That's embarrassing. It's embarrassing". They also have better percentages both in field goals (47.2% to 45.3%) and in 3-pointers (38.3% to 32.7%).

Washington is 5-11, with the second worst defensive rating in the National Basketball Association at 112.2 and a bottom-10 offensive rating to match - a numbers heavy way of saying they allow a lot of points without scoring very many. We went into the season knowing rebounding would be a concern but it has been worse than expected (like at the end of the Hornets' game, when Charlotte was getting key offensive boards to keep plays alive).

The Detroit Pistons are one of several potential trade partners that could look to take advantage of the Wizards' disastrous situation.

Center Dwight Howard (a recurrence of his gluteal soreness) was limited to seven minutes against the Trail Blazers.
