Wizards Reportedly Finalize Max Deal with Bradley Beal

WASHINGTON — The Washington Wizards have finalized a five-year maximum deal with Bradley Beal, according to multiple outlets.

As was the case early Friday morning, the final price tag for the Wizards depends on which report you’re reading. ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reports Beal’s deal is for “about $130 million,” while The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski says Beal is set to earn $128 million.

Skills consultant Drew Hanlen — with whom Beal has worked for several offseasons — congratulated Beal, along with another NBA client, on Twitter for his five-year, $128 million.

The difference could be in incentive based bonuses.

Most reports have noted the deal will not include any options. By all accounts, Beal will wait for the Wizards to attempt to lure other high-dollar free agents before signing his contract, which would afford the Wizards the ability to sign another player to a max deal.

Beal, 23, averaged 17.4 points and 2.9 assists in 55 games this past season for the Wizards.
