The Washington Wizards finally got a bit of good news which is rare for a team in a rebuild.
Bradley Beal will be signing a two year-$72 million maximum extension that will kick in prior to the 2021-22 season.
The deal makes sense to all parties involved. For the Wizards, it delays Beal’s eligibility for three years. This will give the club time to get John Wall back and healthy along with getting some of the young pieces much needed experience.
For Beal, he gets some stability along with a player option in 2022-23.
According to ESPN, if Beal opts out in 22-23 and then re-signs with the Wizards he could get $266 million. If he decides to go elsewhere, he’d be in line for a four-year, $198 million maximum payday.
