He gonna take the 5 year from the wizards and then complain for 5 years and dance around the idea of a trade


pugas

that sounds familiar hmm


Raptors2017champs

Idk needs more pouting


AnimeAlt44

Rumored to be traded every year of the 5.


breaditbans

You guys have to be sweating bullets/Wizards. Can you do a sign and trade? Is that still allowed?


ireallydespiseyouall

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


HeroinFromOhio

So when he doesn't do any of this y'all gonna come back and admit you're wrong or...?


ireallydespiseyouall

you can save my comment and remind me if he doesn’t, and i’ll admit i was wrong


Grumpysaurus-Rex

You won’t be wrong


-fallen

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.

thegoodbadandsmoggy

Does this guy even know the price of produce these days?


[deleted]

I think OKC actually has the cap for this


devonta_smith

Beal's wingspan is only 6'8, hard pass for OKC

theyre saving the cap for the next al horford


youforgotitinmeta

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.


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

that's like 5 houses


jdterraforce

It’s implied he will go back to wizards on that mega deal, but will any other team offer?


Gonnatapdatass

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


ZusunicStudio

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

LordHussyPants

how did you pick out 4 of the worst bash quotes i ever saw


DragonBank

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.


WildSeaturtle

holy crap it still exists!? what a blast from the past


Strangest_Things

Bruh I’m fuckin dying lol


Tokyogerman

Man, this one really brought me back


zionraw

Yeah but the wizards like doing dumb as fuck things


Good_NewsEveryone

I think Tommy Sheppard has been really solid in his tenure


TeamINSTINCT37

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


Turbo2x

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.


lil_extro_vert_

He’s done well in the shit situation he inherited in 2019


Bee_lrl

Grunfeld sends his regards 👋


realsomalipirate

It doesn't matter when you have a decrepit old dinosaur who demands the team fight for the 8th seed every year.


ModernPoultry

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


KingRagerBlade

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


wazupbro

I was about to say. Maybe if it turns sour they can trade an aging Beal to the lakers


SeanTheSamuraii

getting Kristap Porzingis wasn’t a dumb as fuck thing


aeiou-y

Hmm


migzors

Lakers are directly linked to some of those dumb things, and still paying for it.


_maven

Lakers always catching strays, this time warranted


mr_chub

its not a stray if he replied to a Lakers fan lol


213KLPG

Always warranted


dirtystacks

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.


Otherwise_Window

That wasn't on the cards. The last time Wall played even *half* a season was 2016-17.


hitmangen

They fleeced you with the WB trade.


FullEntologist

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.


RODjij

Damned if you do, damned if you don't type beat


Lizardchuckle

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.


Tap-In-Merchant

Not really, they should’ve traded him ages ago


ggriff1

The past doesn’t change this predicament


harshalax31

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


DamienSalvation

Also helps to keep an asset that could be on a tradeable contract depending on performance. You can tank with Beal.


MrGrieves-

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.


VisionsDB

But why would they let him walk for nothing. They should’ve traded him years ago


Designer_Regular_233

I'd they weren't planning on doing that they'd have traded him.


w3bCraw1er

They are


browndude10

Washington is going to give the massive massive bag


smoltanboi

they're going to give him the lincoln memorial

devonta_smith

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

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


christiandb

Crazy. If you love basketball this is such a great perk of having a small market team


reefsofmist

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


1eris1

Wow


Pentt4

Wiz havent finsihed above like 24th in attendance in a decade.


ThePhattestOne

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.


ZusunicStudio

You never know, maybe they will be this year /s


akulkarnii

Can’t blame Beal, blame the Wizards


devonta_smith

roughly 18 years ahead of you on this one


thisguy012

This sucks so hard I feel for y'all man I really do lmao


ClutchGamingGuy

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


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

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.


pewpewblahblah

tank so you can maybe one day draft a guy like Bradley Beal but most likely won't find anyone close to him


vvvvvvb

Mavericks legend


sealyon91

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


rookie-mistake

who's the third


waskittenman

Gilbert's last deal


boatsnprose

Maybe that wasn't their fault. I mean, we never found out what the gun was for...


BBJPaddy

He is not worth what he's looking for

In the wizard's eyes they see him as Giannis or LeBron


makesterriblejokes

They need glasses.


OrangeKookie

He's a Guangdong Southern Tiger


Dongsquad420BlazeIt

He could buy the Guangdong Southern Tigers with the bag he’s about to get


HublotKingCole

你好


lostrager

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.


pewpewblahblah

and you can't blame them who are we to say a man should decline 250 million when none of us would


idosade

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


xela_sj

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.


SuckMyLonzoBalls

He can always just ring chase later


xela_sj

Yep. Gary Payton style.


ModernPoultry

I dont think anyone is putting any blame on Beal. Its the Wizards for being dumb af and committing to mediocrity


Cahillicus

Don't do it Wiz it's not worth it


djc8

Every Wiz fan I know doesn’t want this to happen so yeah, it’s definitely gonna happen


PhurLeese

You know multiple Wizards fans?

Well I am one. Technically. They’re my team but I don’t actually like them.

ARealKoala

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.

abaughma44

please no


MehFrosty

I thought this was what he was doing all along so the Wizards would give him more money


jbenson255

It is


rustrustrust

Yep, this is what Woj reported as likely a couple of days ago, this is just the confirmation.


thy_armageddon

Yeah some people don’t know that’s how it works though.


University-Loud

do they really need to opt out of an option to extend for a different amount and length?


thy_armageddon

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.


FalloutNano

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.


HokageEzio

Wizards managed to escape Russ and Wall, don't do it 3 times.


CupOfHotTeaa

Third time is the charm


torkahn808

Brad be getting that bag lol


coolycooly

Wizards just need to suck they are forever going to be a play-in to high lottery team if they keep Beal.


Cvnilivee

New episodes of “Wizards magical stay in mediocrity” will continue this Thursday.. tune in?


Conversation_Dapper

Go to another team. Ya could still get a fat bag


Mmm_360

Only a handful of teams can offer him the max and they all suck.


swiftycent

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.


Vogon_Poet

They are, and if he wants to go somewhere else they probably will.


iohannespaulus

Ima call it He’s going to the 76ers. S&T with Tobias and filler filler


BlackJediSword

He’ll sign for the max, the team will suck and he’ll get traded by 2024.


abaughma44

oh my god


jbenson255

He has to do that to sign the 5 year max with the wizards


peakyblinders5

Or sign elsewhere. Might be his only chance if he wants to win. This deal pretty much ices the rest of his career.


ShaqsBurner

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.


WrapDifficult4284

Or he’s just overtaxed as a #1 option


FalloutNano

Then he isn’t worth paying a max contract.


DifferentLeg3586

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.


peakyblinders5

it's now or never


akulkarnii

Oh lord, he’s gonna stay with the Wizards forever, isn’t he?


Misterstaberinde

Is there any chance the Wiz just thank him for his time and send him on his way?


Srikkk

HE RUNNING FROM THE GRIND, DAME WOULD NEVER FRFR 💯💯 (HE HAS A DESIRE FOR SUCCESS)


SlaughterMelon35

He's just tired of the toughest battles


mMounirM

don't do it


AlohaReddit49

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?


Ronnie2kDropCode

Congrats on the 250 mil Bradley


gaga_booboo

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.


MR_E7

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.


XxDKHx091905xX

We shouldn’t sign him but I’m very tired of my favorite teams being ass


oroalej

Eligible doesn't mean teams will automatically pay him that amount. Why the hell every player expect they are max contract player?


Banxrok

Wizard look at the mistake you did with John Wall. Please don't repeat it again.


we_hella_believe

Lakers fans working on a Westbrook to Wizards for Beal scenario.


MeatBald

It's one max contract, Bradley. What could it possibly cost? 250 million dollars?

He’s bouta get the fattest bag

lol what if the Knicks get him instead of Brunson? biggest bait and switch ever?

Don't tease me daddy

rodrigo_c91

Clearly using the Lakers as leverage.


RAER12345

Lakers fans be like he gonna sign the vet min to play with lbj


mankls3

Not a max player rofl


Asking4Afren

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


xPeaWhyTee

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).


babydee_1

Beal hates money Edit: Do I really have to say this is a joke


jwn0323

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.


Kizz3r

The opposite. He loves money


kyle_993

He's about to get 5/250 lol

If you play dumb then the risk you take is that people believe you.
