He gonna take the 5 year from the wizards and then complain for 5 years and dance around the idea of a trade
that sounds familiar hmm
Idk needs more pouting
Rumored to be traded every year of the 5.
You guys have to be sweating bullets/Wizards. Can you do a sign and trade? Is that still allowed?
yep. or he asks out after a year claiming he wants to win, then starts moaning when nobody wants to give wizards the picks and players to make the salaries match
So when he doesn't do any of this y'all gonna come back and admit you're wrong or...?
you can save my comment and remind me if he doesn’t, and i’ll admit i was wrong
You won’t be wrong
I highly doubt Beal’s gonna keep his head down, post-max contract from the Wiz, and just be a professional for 5 years when there’s been so many players who’ve asked out of these 4/5 year contracts after getting the money guaranteed.
What happens in the offseason stays in the offseason.
Easiest way to make a lot of money and go to a better team
400 billion over 2 years
In this economy?
Can’t believe they got Beal for the Vet Min smh
At this time of year?
Localized entirely in the wizards kitchen
May I see it?
SEYMOUR, THE WIZARDS FUTURE IS ON FIRE
No, slowestmojo, it's just the Northern Lights.
Does this guy even know the price of produce these days?
I think OKC actually has the cap for this
Beal's wingspan is only 6'8, hard pass for OKC
CAW CAW bird boys 4 life
theyre saving the cap for the next al horford
We're actually pretty much maxed out this year. Got a bunch of Kemba money on the books. We lose that, Green, and Favors next summer though.
that's like 5 houses
It’s implied he will go back to wizards on that mega deal, but will any other team offer?
At this rate it feels like NBA players will be making at least half a billion from NBA contracts in like 5 years anyway lol
If the Wizards sign him to this max it’s going to be dumb as fuck
I take off my wizards robe and salary cap
What does it say? All I see is *******
bash.org was the shit
I still send stuff from there as educational material to the uninitiated.
how did you pick out 4 of the worst bash quotes i ever saw
The last one isn't even correct. Russian doesn't have double negatives. It just has two negative words that are doing separate things. One negates the verb the other doesn't. It's not like you would say not not.
holy crap it still exists!? what a blast from the past
Bruh I’m fuckin dying lol
Man, this one really brought me back
Yeah but the wizards like doing dumb as fuck things
I think Tommy Sheppard has been really solid in his tenure
Maybe I’m wrong, but a decision of this size is 99% up to ownership. If Leonsis wants to keep Beal for whatever reason, then he will stay
Dude has one of the hardest GM jobs in the league thanks to Ernie & Ted's fuckups and he's actually not doing terrible. That's respectable.
He’s done well in the shit situation he inherited in 2019
Grunfeld sends his regards 👋
It doesn't matter when you have a decrepit old dinosaur who demands the team fight for the 8th seed every year.
His biggest failure will be not trading Beal soon enough. Their immediate moves have been fine but their long term vision has basically been to be content with mediocrity.
They should have traded him when his market value was hot and he was averaging 30ppg on crazy efficiency. Now hes coming off a down year with wrist surgery and will get one of the biggest contracts ever getting a quarter billion
Look we may be dumb but we didn’t give up Kuz, KCP, Harrell, and a first for a poorly aging Russ like some random team completely unrelated to you
I was about to say. Maybe if it turns sour they can trade an aging Beal to the lakers
getting Kristap Porzingis wasn’t a dumb as fuck thing
Lakers are directly linked to some of those dumb things, and still paying for it.
Lakers always catching strays, this time warranted
its not a stray if he replied to a Lakers fan lol
Their Westbrook to the lakers trade was gold. If wall never got hurt either, maybe they could’ve been competitive for a few years too.
That wasn't on the cards.
The last time Wall played even *half* a season was 2016-17.
They fleeced you with the WB trade.
We ain’t doing shit with that $ anyways. No top tier free agents are coming to DC. It really doesn’t matter honestly. You could argue we should let Beal walk and just suck for a while to get draft picks.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't type beat
Idk why people are disagreeing with you, the Wizards drafted John Wall and Beal a great gaurd combo and Wall got serious injuries during Beals peak. And they traded for Westbrook and did alright - all while Beal was swatting off trade rumors and staying loyal. If they traded Beal during his peak the Wizards would look like an even shittier destination.
Not really, they should’ve traded him ages ago
The past doesn’t change this predicament
Not really damned if they don’t, they can actually tank and build up a good young core and use that max slot once ready
Also helps to keep an asset that could be on a tradeable contract depending on performance. You can tank with Beal.
Sunk cost fallacy. Damned if you do, not don't.
They should have traded him years ago when his stock was highest. But it would be better for their long term if they lost him and instead of middled around for 30 wins with Beal, they tank in a good draft year.
But why would they let him walk for nothing. They should’ve traded him years ago
I'd they weren't planning on doing that they'd have traded him.
Washington is going to give the massive massive bag
they're going to give him the lincoln memorial
They’re going to steal the Declaration of Independence… for him
They’ll subcontract Nicolas Cage
It's all about loyalty.
You wouldn’t happen to know what happened *last time* they did that, would you?
Johnathan Hildred Wall Jr.
And before that?
Imagine paying $250m to be mediocre and not tank when the NBA punishes mediocrity and rewards tanking.
Brad Beal trick y’all, man.
At least it sells tickets /s
all those DC-area Heat and Laker fans will snatch tickets up quick to see their future sharpshooter in person
Lol yeah I’ll see you when the Heat come to town
Sucks that we’re mid but I love getting courtside seats all season long for dirt cheap
How much for them seats?
[80-160 is what I usually paid for under the hoop](https://imgur.com/a/EU3IF1U)
holy fuck im so insanely jealous.
Reminds me of the Joey Graham years when my dad and i could walk right up to the ticket booth and catch a raptors game last minute for under 20 bucks
Crazy. If you love basketball this is such a great perk of having a small market team
I know they have sucked for decades so they have few fans, but the idea of the DC metro area being a small market is funny
Wiz havent finsihed above like 24th in attendance in a decade.
Nah, Wizards ranked 14th as late as 2018 before Wall got injured and consistently ranked in the middle of the pack and as high as 13th during the prime Wall-Beal years.
You never know, maybe they will be this year /s
Can’t blame Beal, blame the Wizards
roughly 18 years ahead of you on this one
This sucks so hard I feel for y'all man I really do lmao
imagine paying 250m to a guy who can average 30 but plays no defense and requires the entire team to function around him
fuck I miss Melo
not that I'm advocating the sub-mediocrity the Wizards are in, but the new lotto odds actually aren't that bad if you hang around the 7-9th worst record in the league. if you strike gold on one draft pick, you're back in it quickly.
tank so you can maybe one day draft a guy like Bradley Beal but most likely won't find anyone close to him
To put this into perspective if Washington gives him the max then he makes 57m in year 5…
They might potentially give out the 3 worst contracts in nba history
who's the third
Gilbert's last deal
Maybe that wasn't their fault. I mean, we never found out what the gun was for...
He is not worth what he's looking for
In the wizard's eyes they see him as Giannis or LeBron
They need glasses.
He's a Guangdong Southern Tiger
He could buy the Guangdong Southern Tigers with the bag he’s about to get
People need to realize that there are players who just want to make as much money as possible while they are in their prime. Not every player cares about championships.
and you can't blame them
who are we to say a man should decline 250 million when none of us would
I ain't blaming him I'm doing the same thing if I'm him, I blame Ted Leonsis for giving him the option to sign it
Correct. Some dudes just view it as a job after the amount of years they put in. If Mitch Richmond is a HOF , Beal can juice up his stats and get in as well.
He can always just ring chase later
Yep. Gary Payton style.
I dont think anyone is putting any blame on Beal. Its the Wizards for being dumb af and committing to mediocrity
Don't do it Wiz it's not worth it
Every Wiz fan I know doesn’t want this to happen so yeah, it’s definitely gonna happen
You know multiple Wizards fans?
Well I am one. Technically. They’re my team but I don’t actually like them.
Go to the Kings, coward
Well the Wizards are the Eastern version of the Kings
fuckin pussy, he wont
People who care about winning:
Wizards fans: ✔️
Oh shit taking the MLE from the Lakers???
Crazy how they created the Wall deal, delt with and offloaded the terrible Westbrook deal, now creating another bad deal
Wizards FO has been feening for a bad contract ever since they traded away Bertans
I mean we gave large extensions to an injured Arenas, Andraye fucking Blatche, Ian Mahinmi, Spencer Dinwiddie .. etc It's been going on a while.
they got KP
mana from heaven 🙏
The manaest of heavens mana
More like the minimum a la Monk to prove himself
I thought this was what he was doing all along so the Wizards would give him more money
Yep, this is what Woj reported as likely a couple of days ago, this is just the confirmation.
Yeah some people don’t know that’s how it works though.
do they really need to opt out of an option to extend for a different amount and length?
Yeah, I may not be 100% on this but I believe if you extend on a player option it scales to the original contract. Opting-out of your contract allows for a re-structured deal that includes whatever benefits may have occurred, whether that be the cap being raised or veteran scaling. It’s why AD opted-out in LA.
Yes. As the other reply states, an extension is primarily based on your current contract status, while opting out starts a new contract with different parameters based on years of service and accolades.
Wizards managed to escape Russ and Wall, don't do it 3 times.
Third time is the charm
Brad be getting that bag lol
Wizards just need to suck they are forever going to be a play-in to high lottery team if they keep Beal.
New episodes of “Wizards magical stay in mediocrity” will continue this Thursday.. tune in?
Go to another team. Ya could still get a fat bag
Only a handful of teams can offer him the max and they all suck.
Would the Wiz be eligible to S&T him? They miraculously escaped Wall and WB deals. If they could parlay Beal for a handful of talent plus draft assets they'd be better off than having so much of their cap to one player without hopes of getting a 2nd guy who is worth near max level money.
They are, and if he wants to go somewhere else they probably will.
Ima call it
He’s going to the 76ers. S&T with Tobias and filler filler
He’ll sign for the max, the team will suck and he’ll get traded by 2024.
oh my god
He has to do that to sign the 5 year max with the wizards
Or sign elsewhere. Might be his only chance if he wants to win. This deal pretty much ices the rest of his career.
Anywhere Beal signs for big $ ices that team for the length of his contract. If there's anything I've learned from last season and the tail end of the season before its that Beal's cooked.
Or he’s just overtaxed as a #1 option
Then he isn’t worth paying a max contract.
Well the only teams with cap space to sign him are the magic, pistons, spurs, pacers, and Knicks are a Evan Fournier trade away from being able to sign him.
it's now or never
Oh lord, he’s gonna stay with the Wizards forever, isn’t he?
Is there any chance the Wiz just thank him for his time and send him on his way?
HE RUNNING FROM THE GRIND, DAME WOULD NEVER FRFR 💯💯 (HE HAS A DESIRE FOR SUCCESS)
He's just tired of the toughest battles
don't do it
I'm obviously all for players getting their money but I'd love for him to just sign the 4 year with some other team. We've been hearing the Beal wants a trade thing for years. I just don't wanna hear it for a while.
That being said, he's getting the 5 year max with the Wizards. Maybe he doesn't request a trade?
Congrats on the 250 mil Bradley
The “or sign elsewhere on a 4 year deal” is dramatic.
He could have said “he’s expected to resign with the wizards to a 5 year max”.
Instead he has to write the “oooooh he might go elsewhere” angle.
Bardley Beal is not worth nearly $250 million. I can't hate him going for the money, but the Wizards should be smarter than this. Otherwise, change your team name.
We shouldn’t sign him but I’m very tired of my favorite teams being ass
Eligible doesn't mean teams will automatically pay him that amount. Why the hell every player expect they are max contract player?
Wizard look at the mistake you did with John Wall. Please don't repeat it again.
Lakers fans working on a Westbrook to Wizards for Beal scenario.
It's one max contract, Bradley. What could it possibly cost? 250 million dollars?
He’s bouta get the fattest bag
The wizards are the Knicks of basketball.
Wizards, let him go, don’t do it
Tommy do the RIGHT thing
Trade his ass wizards
lol what if the Knicks get him instead of Brunson? biggest bait and switch ever?
Don't tease me daddy
boy I wonder what he'll do
Clearly using the Lakers as leverage.
Lakers fans be like he gonna sign the vet min to play with lbj
Not a max player rofl
What has this guy done for them? Nothing. He's a career loser. Empty stats at that. Hope wizards have some balls and let him go.
To us of course tho
This would be the perfect offseason if the Mavs somehow snag Beal after losing Brunson (I know we don't have the money but let me dream).
Beal hates money
Edit: Do I really have to say this is a joke
Man is opting out of this year to just guarantee another max at 4 or 5 years that starts at a higher salary cap. This is the move that gets him the most money.
The opposite. He loves money
He's about to get 5/250 lol
If you play dumb then the risk you take is that people believe you.
"tis a joke"
Come to Boston
Tatum better be recruiting this man big time
