The Wizards have made it clear they are committed to signing Beal to the max, but the timing is everything from the standpoint of preserving cap room to chase free agents such as Kevin Durant in 2016. CBSSports.com

If the Wizards don't do the extension this summer, Beal would have two options: Become a restricted free agent next summer (assuming the Wizards extend a qualifying offer, which of course they will), or sign his $7.5 million qualifying offer and become unrestricted in 2017. Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld and Beal's agent, Mark Bartelstein, have yet to initiate extension talks, but they will soon. CBSSports.com

Korver was matched up with Beal for 9:32, and he was 1-for-4 for just three points, according to the NBA's SportVU player tracking data. And consider that Beal is doing this after rolling his troublesome right ankle so badly in Game 1, when he led all scorers with 28 points, that he left the court in the fourth quarter in tears. And without John Wall, who fractured his left hand and wrist and has missed the last two games and is unlikely to play again this series. "Don't let my face fool you now. It was tough," said Beal of chasing around Korver after Game 2. "I was trying to do whatever I could. It wasn't easy. A lot of treatment the last couple days but I was out there, no excuses."

Bradley Beal started Game 1 against the Toronto Raptors nearly reduced to tears by an inspiring pregame speech from Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman. "I almost cried," Beal said. "Witt almost had me teary-eyed before the game. He said make sure you cherish each moment, because you never know, this may be your last game playing. He looked at Paul [Pierce] and said, 'Paul, this may be your last time ever making it to the playoffs.'" "You have to embrace each moment that you are out here on the floor and live in each moment each and every second." ESPN.com

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal, who played for Billy Donovan at Florida, thinks that his former college coach will make the jump to the NBA. Beal appeared on the Dan Patrick Show on Friday, and he was asked what kind of pro coach Donovan would make. "I think he'd be great," Beal responded. "I agree with the rumors, I think he'll definitely leave. I think he won't pass that opportunity up too many times, and I think he'll be a tremendous coach. He loves playing in pick-and-rolls, he loves to space the floor and he gives his players freedom, so I think he'll definitely, he'll excel well in the league. CBSSports.com
