Bradley Beal on re-signing with Wizards: 'There were no teams in the market'

- by

Bradley Beal explained why he re-signed with the Washington Wizards during a recent episode of No Chill with Gilbert Arenas. (via No Chill with Gilbert Arenas): “But to have the pieces we have, we have enough to know that we can compete on a nightly basis with no BS. We know that we got a job, everybody’s able to be a star in their role, and we can go do that. On the flip side of it, the business side of it. There were no teams in the market, free agency-wise. I’m just being frank. There was nowhere else for me to go where I can be like, ‘Oh, I can go win.’ It was teams that strategically wasn’t what I wanted. So realistically, I wouldn’t say my hand was forced, but this was my best decision and best option on the table at the time.”

Bradley Beal, Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Kuzma are one of only 3 trios of teammates to average 20+ ppg w/qualified games played in the last 15 years. The other ones were pretty good.

(3/5) For the second error that hurt the Wizards, after Bradley Beal missed the potential go-ahead jumper, Kelly Oubre Jr. should’ve been whistled for fouling Kristaps Porziņģis as they went for the rebound. Porziņģis should’ve received two free throws.…6:01 PM

Bradley Beal had 33 pts, 7 ast and 6 reb against the Hornets. But he also had two turnovers late in the 4th that loomed large.
It seems like a good time to take stock of his season overall so far.…12:23 AM

Bradley Beal had two turnovers in the final 1:30 tonight. He leads the NBA in turnovers in clutch situations (9).
Beal had 33 pts, 7 ast and 6 reb and was instrumental in their near comeback, but will likely be frustrated with how things went at the end. – 9:49 PM

It’s 74-59 Hornets at halftime. Beal has 18 pts and the Wiz have 8 threes, yet they are down 15 thanks to Charlotte enjoying a 25-18 edge in rebounding and 38-24 advantage in PITP. – 8:11 PM

More on this storyline

“Not everybody gives you a voice in the organization. I have a voice here. I never had a chance to fully play a year with KP. That enticed me. He’s probably the best big I’ve played with. I like Kuz’s ability to be able to spread his wings a little bit more, develop into the player that we think he can be. I like the young core that we were developing. Rui is really good, had an awesome summer. Deni’s just gonna continue to get better. And then Corey’s a knockdown shooter, who is a Pro’s Pro. We still need to get better. I’m not sitting here saying, ‘We’re gonna hold up the Larry. We’re going to beat Milwaukee tomorrow.’ No.” -via TalkBasket / December 4, 2022
Anthony Chiang: Bradley Beal will play and start for the Wizards tonight vs. Heat. He was listed as questionable. -via Twitter @Anthony_Chiang / November 25, 2022
