Wizards ink Bradley Beal to two-year max contract extension

Published

on

The trade rumours can be put to rest, because Bradley Beal will be staying in the nation’s capital for a little while longer.

The Washington Wizards announced Thursday that they have signed star guard Bradley Beal to a two-year, $72 million max contract extension that includes a player option for the 2022/2023 season. The deal also has a 15% trade kicker, and a no-trade clause during the regular season.

The 26-year old still has two years remaining on his current contract, so the total value of his two deals combined is close to $130 million over a span of four years.

Beal, who was selected third overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, has averaged 19.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in seven seasons and 488 regular season games.

He averaged a career-high 25.6 points last season on a 47.5 field goal percentage.
