I'm not a cp hater either. Wall has a higher ceiling.
CP is statistically a top 3 midrange shooter in the league (one of the best of the era easily), and in PPP is top 5 in the pickandroll (Wall is 16th and CP has no wing anywhere remotely on Beals level, as the roll man Gortat is not far off Deandre and can actually shoot) and one of the best 3pt shooters
Wall in place of CP really hurts the spacing and shooting of the team. Theyd fall off hard offensively and defensively CP is still better
Beal wouldve prolly made the AS team if he played with CP TBH
but ultimately Wizards have the same flaws Clips do, no bench/depth
