Bradley Beal could take 20 shots per game this season.
"It’s just me just getting out of my shell," Beal said about the possible shot increase. "Just getting out of this boy stage a little bit. This young mindset of mine. It’ll come out eventually. I have a monster I need to unleash." Beal only had nine games with at least 20 shots last year, so that's a tall order. Plus, the Wizards should be limiting him based on his leg injury. He's still a decent option in the middle rounds. Sep 26 - 6:57 PM

Bradley Beal's longtime shooting coach Drew Hanlen said that he doesn't believe there's a rift between Beal and John Wall.

"I think both were saying that they’re just leaders and very vocal leaders, so at times both of them want the stage," said Hanlen regarding Wall's recent comments that the backcourt duo sometimes don't like each other on the court. "I don’t think there’s any beef between them because they are friends off the court." Beal and Wall have a complicated relationship, and there are reports out there that suggest Wall was a bit perturbed by the amount of money Washington handed to Beal during free agency.

Bradley Beal said that this summer is "probably the best offseason" he's had in terms of taking care of his body, and he hasn't experienced "any soreness" in his troublesome right leg.

Beal was on the stage for his presser Wednesday morning, announcing the official signing of his five-year, $128 million deal. Head coach Scott Brooks was also in attendance and said that he believes Beal can develop into one of "the best two-way players in the league," and that his jumper is "flawless." These are true statements, but Beal will need to stay healthy to realize his potential, something he hasn't managed to do throughout his four years of NBA experience.

The Wizards officially announced the re-signing of Bradley Beal on Tuesday.

The contract is reportedly for five-years at $128 million, and while the talent certainly is there, Beal's ability to stay on the court is a serious concern. Stress reactions in Beal's right leg have constantly put him on the sidelines for prolonged stretches throughout his career, and last season he only managed to get out there for 55 games. He did, however, produce averages of 17.4 points, 2.9 assists, 1.9 triples and 1.0 steal per game last season, so he's on the radar as a risk-reward, late-round target.

According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, the Wizards deal with Bradley Beal is done.

The deal is expected to be worth around $128 million over five years, so Beal got the max deal that he demanded. While his talent is undeniable, the contract is pretty risky considering he's had some serious durability issues and has never played in more than 73 games in a season. Beal averaged 17.4 points, 3.4 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.9 treys in just 55 appearances last season.

The Wizards and free agent Bradley Beal are reportedly "nearing" agreement on a five-year, $128 million maximum contract.

Washington has long been expected to offer Beal a max deal, despite recurring leg injuries that forced him to miss 27 games last season. By quickly reaching an agreement but officially signing Beal late in free agency, they can also proceed with roughly $30 million in cap space to spend elsewhere. All signs point to the Wizards locking up Beal for the long-haul.
Jul 1 - 12:31 AM

The Wizards "will try and hammer out framework of new deal" for Bradley Beal early Friday morning, according to's David Aldridge.

The Wizards are not going to be able to get Kevin Durant, so they're going to lock up Beal for a five-year, $133 million deal. Talent isn't the question for the 23-year-old Beal, but his oft-injured fibula has been a major concern. The Wizards might want to dial down his minutes to the low 20s.

Bradley Beal will not participate for Team USA this summer.

Beal announced it in a statement on his Twitter account: "I could not be more grateful for the invitation to represent my country, as it is the ultimate honor, however it is with deep regret that I have declined the opportunity to participate with Team USA this summer in Rio. I have made the decision to dedicate this summer to getting in the best physical shape of my life and feel it is imperative that I stay true to my plan so I can be at my very best supporting my coaches and teammates for the upcoming season." This is good news for the Wizards due to how Beal has so many injuries to his leg.
Jun 24 - 3:22 PM

According to sources of the Washington Post, the Wizards are expected to offer Bradley Beal a five-year max deal.

We already knew the Wizards wanted to re-sign Beal, but he's been adamant about receiving a max deal and it sounds like Washington will give it to him. His durability issues are a major red flag, but the Wizards don't really have any alternative options and the rising salary cap will allow them to take some risks. He's a restricted free agent, so the Wizards will still be able to match any opposing offers if they change their mind about giving him the max. Free agency begins on July 1st.
May 27 - 10:37 AM

The Wizards are reportedly determined to keep their core of John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat intact.

Beal will be seeking a max deal as a restricted free agent this offseason, and given that Beal is one of the higher upside guys in the upcoming free agency class, he'll likely find a team out there willing to pay him big money. The Wizards will have the right to match any offer that Beal receives on the open market, and early indications are that they will do whatever they can to retain him, despite his constant struggles with staying healthy.

Bradley Beal said he's looking for a max contract this summer.

"I feel like I’m a max player and that’s what I’m looking for," Beal said. "If Washington can’t meet that requirement then I may be thinking elsewhere. I’m pretty sure that they probably won’t [let me go]." Beal would be looking for a deal of around $92 million over four years. His leg injury concerns make him a big risk, so there may not be a big market for him at that price.
May 23 - 3:31 PM

Bradley Beal is hoping to use the summer to get his troublesome right leg back to full strength.

"I’m thinking of different methods, if I want to stick to the routine I’ve been on the last couple years, if I want to start lifting more or lifting less, do more running. I definitely have to change my diet," Beal said. "I’m very unique. Nobody else has this injury but me. It’s hard to reach out and research anybody else who has it and what they’ve done for it. It’s like I’m a guinea pig and just testing out things and see if they work or not. I trust the doctors." Beal has developed a stress reaction in his lower right leg in four straight seasons, so he's going to be a risky pick in fantasy regardless of where he lands in restricted free agency.
Apr 18 - 10:11 AM

Bradley Beal said that he and John Wall should've had a much better season together.

"As far as us two together it wasn’t anything unusual. There was no beef or anything like that," Beal said of his relationship with Wall. "We just didn’t play as well as we were supposed to. I think sometimes we put a lot of pressure on ourselves and we tried to overdo it especially if one’s not playing and the other one is. There’s a lot of things that factor into it. Overall, it’s no excuse. We both should’ve had a better year than we had." injuries only allowed Beal to play in 55 games this season, so the durability concerns will once again make him a risky pick in fantasy drafts next season.
Apr 17 - 12:25 PM

Bradley Beal (pelvis), Markieff Morris (rest) and Marcin Gortat (rest) will all miss Wednesday's season finale vs. the Hawks.

John Wall has already been ruled out so it'll be an all-hands-on-deck situation for the Wizards tonight. Beal played in a career-low 55 games this season and he's conceded that he may have a minute-limit for the rest of his career, so his stock will tumble in fantasy drafts next year.
Apr 13 - 7:24 PM

Bradley Beal (pelvis) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

This isn't really a surprise with the Wizards out of the playoff hunt. Beal probably won't play in the season finale either, as the Wizards have no incentive to play him at less than 100 percent. Marcus Thornton and Garrett Temple should pick up most of Beal's minutes.
