Bradley Beal told Ben Golliver of the Washington Post that he is ‘open to signing an extension’ to remain with the Wizards.
Over the course of the past two weeks, Bradley Beal’s name has been a hot topic around the league. There have been rumors of the Pelicans, Celtics, and even the Knicks, landing Beal through either a trade or free agency.
Bradley Beal said in an interview with the Washington Post that he ‘wants to see what the Wizards do in free agency before making his decision.’ Washington does not currently have a GM which could factor into his decision if the team does not sign one soon.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Wizards are ready to offer Beal a 3-year, 111 million dollar extension. This is the maximum deal that the Wizards can offer after Bradley was snubbed from an all-NBA selection, causing him to be ineligible for a supermax contract.
Bradley Beal is coming off of a career season. He averaged 25.6 points per game, 5 rebounds per game, and 5.5 assists per game in the 2018-2019 campaign. Losing Beal would be a critical blow to an already slim Washington Wizards team.
