“At the very first moment allowed, we are going to offer Bradley the full max extension,” Sheppard said.
Beal’s extension would be worth three years and $111 million.
Meanwhile, agent Mark Bartelstein told Candace Buckner of the Washington Post it’s too early to say if Beal would accept the offer.
“We haven’t even gone there yet,” Bartelstein said. “There hasn’t been a decision to make as of yet. When we get there, we’ll actually start thinking about it more seriously.”
Beal, 26, was the third overall pick in the 2012 draft. He has played in all 82 games in each of the past two seasons — and averaged career-highs in points (25.6), assists (5.5) and rebounds (5.0) in 2018-19.
He did so most of the year minus veteran point guard John Wall, who missed the end of the year with an Achilles injury. Wall could be out all of next season too.
“There are moments in a career where there are big decisions to make, and Brad will work through everything and figure out the right thing to do,” Bartelstein told Wojnarowski. “There are nothing but great feelings for [Wizards owner] Ted [Leonsis], Tommy and [coach] Scott [Brooks]. They’ve treated Brad wonderfully.”
