The Washington Wizards have been an absolute mess this season, and on Monday night, the world finally saw it spill over. Turns out, the team may have a good reason for making everyone available in trades.

Several Washington players were recently involved in verbal altercations during a "volatile practice", according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources. It hasn't involved just the players either.

The mess in D.C. keeps getting worse: John Wall was reportedly fined for shouting an expletive at Wizards head coach Scott Brooks.

The Wizards may finally be ready to blow up the team, which they were rumored to have been considering for the past nine months or so, dating back to lsat season's trade deadline.

"I've been dealing with this for seven years", star guard Bradley Beal said. He is now earning $38.2 million this season and a four-year contract extension will kick in next season that will see him earn an average of $42 million. 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. This caveat could make moving either player - especially Beal - more hard. Since Wall joined the team, it has finished no higher than fourth in the Eastern Conference.

On the court, both Beal and Wall have performed up to their usual standards this season.

Word is the Wolves did try to engage Washington - another team falling well short of expectations - in trade talks for the sharpshooting guard Bradley Beal.

The Wizards are frustrated after a slow start.
