The Wizards have made a habit of re-signing their key players, so how will paying Bradley Beal one of the largest contracts in NBA history work out?

Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Bradley Beal will make $50M a year. The NBA’s highest paid player. He has won 3 playoff games in the last 5 years. – 7:31 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Bradley Beal re-signing all but ensures he will be the Wizards/Bullets’ all-time scoring leader. He’s only 1,320 points behind Elvin Hayes and is likely to pass him this season.
h/t @Chris Miller for that note – 7:16 PM

I think an interesting question now that the Beal deal is done is whether it will create some natural urgency for the Wizards in the trade market, now and in the years to come. He’s entering his Age 29 season, so there’s a logical window to capitalize on. – 6:38 PM
Wayne Cole @waynec0le
Everything pointed to Bradley Beal returning to the Washington Wizards on a Supermax $251M Contract. With being near the organization, especially in the last month, the team felt confident in retaining his services. – 6:33 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Bradley Beal is staying in D.C. once again. His 5-year extension will run through his Age 33 season and his 15th year in the NBA.

I’m still chuckling that people said and thought Bradley Beal wasn’t re-signing for a quarter of a billion dollars – 6:22 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Your Bradley Beal fake trades were not correct. – 6:15 PM
Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Bradley Beal is 1,321 points away from becoming @Washington Wizards All-Time leading scorer trailing the great Elvin Hayes. Beal has scored at least 1300 pts. in 5 of his first 10 seasons. – 6:12 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards re-signing Bradley Beal continues a yearslong trend of the organization keeping players they want to keep. They have essentially batted 1.000 in re-signing their own players, from stars to key role players. – 6:07 PM
Anthony Puccio @APOOCH
Nikola Jokic and Bradley Beal now become the only players to ever sign a $250+ million contract. Insane. – 6:07 PM

All-Star guard Bradley Beal has agreed to a five-year, $251 million maximum contract to stay with the Washington Wizards, his agent Mark Bartelstein of @Priority Sports tells ESPN. – 6:01 PM

Will be interesting to see the fine details of Bradley Beal’s new contract
Presume he gets the same player option in the last season and 15% trade kicker that Otto Porter Jr. and John Wall had – 5:32 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
I wonder if the Wizards will even use the full MLE (or 15th roster spot) because if Bradley Beal re-signs for the max, they may not be able to stay under the $150.3M luxury tax with two minimum contracts barring further moves. – 8:11 PM

More on this storyline

Chase Hughes: NBA free agency begins today at 6 p.m. While all eyes are on Bradley Beal’s decision, I’m told Thomas Bryant is likely to sign with another team and is expected to have multiple suitors. That would leave the Wizards in the market for a third center. -via Twitter @ChaseHughesNBCS / June 30, 2022
Wizards All Star guard Bradley Beal declined his $36.4 million player option but has not requested a sign-and-trade to another team. The Heat would have interest in Beal if he asked to be traded to Miami. But as of Wednesday, he had not. -via Miami Herald / June 29, 2022
NBA Central: “Bradley Beal has indicated all along that his loyalties and wanting to see it through in Washington.” – @Adrian Wojnarowski (h/t @The Jump ) -via Twitter @TheNBACentral / June 29, 2022
