No max deal for Bradley Beal?

Bradley Beal wants a maximum contract extension, but the Washington Wizards reportedly won’t give him one. They plan to make him play out the 2015-16 season then hit restricted free agency, according to CSN Washington’s J. Michael Falgoust: “Bradley Beal has made it clear he thinks he’s a max player and that’s what he wants. I’ve talked to people on both sides all offseason about this. It seems to be Bradley Beal’s decision. The Wizards are willing to make him an offer, an extension, but they’re not going to offer him the maximum extension right now simply because they don’t have to.

Word is the Wizards and Beal have been talking extension all summer and while a deal has not been finalized, there is a sense that both sides will agree to something before the October 31st deadline. There was talk of a deal in the max range, but given the deals that have gotten done, namely Lillard’s $120 million deal, the bar on absolute max might be a little too high to get a deal done without a trip through restricted free agency.

Ideally, Bradley Beal won’t have to log as many minutes in his fourth season with the Wizards. This will be the most backup he has had on the perimeter which could allow him to be more effective in the long run and avoid recurring injuries to his ankles and lower right leg. “I like them. We have a great group of guys,” Beal said about new acquisitions Gary Neal, Jared Dudley, Alan Anderson and Kelly Oubre in a phone conversation last week. “I think Jared is going to help us out tremendously. Alan is going to help us out. … I’m excited. We still have a great team, still have our core together and it’s just a matter of going out and getting the job done again.”
