Washington Wizards star John Wall found himself in a bit of a hot water after getting into it with head coach Scott Brooks.

Wall was fined after he allegedly shouted an expletive at his coach during a recent practice. Adrian Wojnarowski reported the following details of the altercation:

After teammate Jeff Green and Brooks pushed Wall and Wizards teammates to raise the level of intensity in a practice last week, Wall fired back with “F— you” toward Brooks, league sources said.

Wall apologized to Brooks shortly afterward and to his teammates the next day, league sources said.

It’s unclear how much the fine was for, but it should also be noted the team is apparently willing to trade the star point guard if necessary.

The Wizards are trash right now. They’re absolutely garbage, and if I had to guess, I’d say that probably contributed to the situation and tensions. Winning teams rarely get themselves into situations where the star player is cussing out the coach. That’s generally reserved for teams that struggle. (RELATED: LeBron JameSigns With The Lakers)

Perhaps, it wouldn’t be the worst thing possible for Wall to find a new team. The man is incredibly talented, and he can play.

It looks like his time in Washington is quickly coming to an end. Trust me, there will be plenty of suitors lined up if the Wizards want to ship him out of town.
