One of good guys gets paid.
Putting to rest any trade speculation, the Washington Wizards have extended Bradley Beal's contract for two years.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN spoke to Mark Bartelstein, Beal's agent, who confirmed the agreement. The contract includes a player option for 2022-23 and has a total value of four years and $130 million. If Beal declines the option, he would be eligible to sign a five-year contract worth $266 million, which would be the biggest deal in NBA history, per Wojnarowski.
"Brad has always made it clear to me, that in a perfect world, he would never leave Washington," Bartlelstein told Wojnarowski. "He has felt an obligation to be the focal point in turning the Wizards into an elite team. He's thrilled about all the resources that Ted is pouring into the franchise and thrilled how committed (Wizards owner Ted Leonsis) and (general manager Tommy Sheppard) are to building something special."
