Whenever it happens, Beal believes he is worth the maximum. “I would say, yeah. I’m not going to sell myself short,” Beal said Thursday in a telephone interview from his home town of St. Louis, where he was hosting a youth basketball camp. “I feel like I am. But it is what it is. If I get offered, I get offered. If I don’t, I don’t. I’m just going to continue to be the player I am and not let money really have any effect on me like that.”: 3 more rumors
“I can. I can,” Beal said when asked if he envisions himself in the District for the long haul. “It’s just a matter of what the front office wants to do. I love D.C., I love being there. I love playing for the team. I was part of helping build this team so I wouldn’t just leave that easily. I’m definitely looking forward to playing next year regardless of what happens this summer. I’m still going to be wearing a Wizards jersey.”

Q: Big news this week for your team was when the Los Angeles Clippers stole Paul Pierce away. What did Pierce mean to the Wizards last season? Bradley Beal: He was great for us. Definitely a mentor who was a great vet for us. He was the first one in the gym and the last one to leave. He was a professional with everything that he did. That passion and that drive I think really helped to get us to where we got to. I think his swagger and his approach to the game as well as his confidence in this team is what really pushed us all to the next level. It was great for me to be able to play with him. He’s a future hall-of-famer so I’m glad I was able to have the opportunity to play with him. I wish him nothing but the best (in Los Angeles).
