The Washington Wizards fined All-Star guard John Wall for unloading a verbal barrage at coach Scott Brooks in a recent practice session, league sources told ESPN.

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 did apologize to Brooks shortly afterward, and to his teammates the following day, league sources said.

The disconnect between Wall and his teammates has increased throughout the Wizards’ struggles, league sources said. Washington is 5-11, and underachieving this season.

For the first time, the Wizards are willing to start listening to trade offers on their All-Star backcourt of Wall and Bradley Beal, ESPN reported on Monday.
