We got lucky with Porzingis that the Knicks knew they were signing Durant and Kyrie and priority #1 was to clear space before the deadline (also that KP publicly wanted out). And even then we had to include 2 firsts and a recent lottery pick.
Yeah if Washington decides it's time to rebuild they're going to want assets we don't have for Beal. Using him to take on Wall's contract doesn't benefit them unless they're clearing cap space for superstars which they aren't as they aren't a free agent destination.

The main competitor for Beal's services is Miami and Pat Riley.
They can offer Winslow and Adebayo. But they don't have any picks anymore and they can't take on John Wall's deal.
Dallas is one of the few teams left who can do that. I think Beal is leaving Washington in two seasons. They need to get something out of him otherwise losing him for nothing is like Kawhi leaving Toronto with nothing. To be able to rid Wall's contract along with Beal is a plus. It's a new regime there after Grunfeld got fired and they want a clean slate. The same way the new guys in New York had to fix what Phil Jackson did.
Mavs would probably (have) to do it. It's Bradley Beal. No brainer.
Wiz maybe 50-50. If they're losing him like Kawhi or AD, they might prefer to get something out of it.
