Bradley Beal says Wizards were players were told at halftime Daniel Gafford wouldn’t return from his ankle injury. He had 5 blocks after coming back: “That just shows his toughness.” – 10:43 PM

Bradley Beal puts the turnover problems bluntly lol: “We’ve gotta stop turning the ball over, especially my ass.” – 10:36 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
The problem is with Beal playing way below his standards and Dinwiddie just kinda existing without doing much, there’s a play initiation vacuum that’s being filled by guys who aren’t meant to fill it. Those two just have to snap out of it. Everything else is just window dressing – 9:59 PM

More on this storyline

“I got time,” Beal told Haynes. “I kind of hold the cards right now, and No. 1, I’ve never been in this position. So I’m kind of embracing that, being able to, OK, kind of dictate how I want my future to be and where I want it to be. At the same time, I’m giving Shep [Tommy Sheppard] that opportunity to show that it’s working. But at the same time, I’m not gonna make that grand commitment and it doesn’t work. -via / December 8, 2021
“Ultimately you have to be selfish at some point, and for probably the first time in my career, Year 10, I am. My full commitment is to the team. I want it to work. I’ve contributed to being here. I’ve committed to being here twice. So now I want to see that commitment to me as well, you know, that we can create a winning team and a winning environment, and granted, I’m a part of that. So I’ve gotta make sure that I’m stepping up and doing my thing as well.” -via / December 8, 2021
With Beal’s decision on a contract extension looming, Washington and its General Manager Tommy Sheppard have made their pitch. On Friday, nearly two years after Beal signed a two-year, $72 million deal, the Wizards can officially present a four-year, $181.5 million extension. Sheppard said in an interview earlier this month the team plans to do so “at dawn.” Beal, however, will take slightly more time to figure out his future. “My biggest thing is getting us off going to a good start,” Beal said Monday, after noting the deal is for Sheppard, team owner Ted Leonsis and his agent Mark Bartelstein to figure out. “We worry about the contract money and all that later. I’ll let them deal with it when the time comes, for sure. I got all year to sign, too. So I’m not in a rush.” -via Washington Post / September 30, 2021
