In Beal’s case, a $36.4 million player option is much more certain to be declined. Even if Beal simply re-signs with the Wizards, he can increase his 2022-23 salary to the projected max of $42.7 million.

Paolo Banchero is just one of many to have all these three generational talents on his all-time top 5 players list. Recently, the newest Orlando Magic forward was asked to answer a few rapid-fire questions in a video with Complex Sports. When asked to reveal his all-time top 5 players list, the former Duke Blue Devil revealed (“in no order”): Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The 6-foot-10 forward even named his top 5 players in the NBA currently, naming – LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, and Stephen Curry. It’s only about time that Paolo starts earning his way into various enthusiasts’ such lists.
