  • Wizards Sign Bradley Beal To 2 Years $72 Million

    Bradley Beal, Wizards agree to 2-year, $72M extension

    Washington Wizards All-Star guard Bradley Beal has agreed to extend his deal for two years on a $72 million maximum contract.

    Beal's extension, which will begin with the 2021-22 season, includes a player option for 2022-23 that keeps him out of free agency for three more seasons and guarantees him nearly $130 million over four years.

    Beal's deal includes a 15 percent trade bonus on the extension years and 50 percent advance payment of the $34.5 million and $37.3 million (if he opts into the 2022-23 years) annual salaries.

    Beal is coming off his best statistical season for Washington, averaging career highs with 25.6 points, 5.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. The Wizards drafted Beal with the third overall pick out of Florida in 2012. He has been part of four playoff teams in Washington and has made two consecutive All-Star appearances.
