Bradley Beal scored 19 points with two rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer on 9-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's easy preseason win over the Sixers.
Beal and Otto Porter looked fantastic tonight, and it would be surprising if neither of them are in the starting lineup on opening night. Beal's going to be costly (fourth round?), while Porter should be available in the later middle rounds of your draft. Oct 6 - 11:24 PM

Bradley Beal is trying to take fewer long 2-point shots this season.

"As a team, that’s what we’re doing now," said Beal." As one of the lowest-percentage shots in basketball, it's no surprise coach Randy Wittman is making long 2-pointers an emphasis. The Wizards launched 17.2 shots from the 15-19 foot range last year, second-most in the NBA behind the Hornets, and they connected on only 39.8 percent of those attempts. Beal himself shot 33.8 percent from that range, so a reduction in volume can only help his fantasy value.

Bradley Beal said the Wizards have not offered him a contract extension.

That's different than what has been reported, so it's certainly an interesting piece of news. Regardless, Beal also added that he wasn't worried about it and that his agent was dealing with the process. It's looking increasingly unlikely that he'll get an extension before the October deadline comes around.

Bradley Beal was at a team workout this week.

He could be getting a contract extension next month and that issue is clearly not affecting Beal's offseason plans in a negative capacity. With Paul Pierce gone, Beal could have a big year. With The Truth on the court last year, Beal posted a 22.4 usage rate. On the other hand, he posted a 25.1 usage rate sans Pierce. If Beal can stay healthy, he could be a steal in drafts.

The Wizards have not made substantial progress in extension talks with Bradley Beal.

The two sides have until Oct. 31 to reach an agreement, but there is no reason for the Wizards to rush into a decision. Beal would be an obvious candidate for a max contract if he didn't have durability concerns, so it will be interesting to see what he ends up getting with the salary cap set to expand soon. Despite the injury risk, Beal is worth a gamble in the middle rounds after a phenomenal performance in last season's playoffs.

The Wizards have not made any progress in reaching an agreement on an extension with Bradley Beal.

Beal wants the max, but Washington seems to be hesitant to give that kind of money to a guy that has suffered the same injury (stress reaction in lower right leg) for three consecutive seasons. Beal can improve his stock by making it through an entire season unscathed, so restricted free agency may be his best bet for receiving that max-money deal that he desires. A prototypical risk/reward player, Beal is worth a gamble during the middle rounds on draft day.
Sep 3 - 7:12 PM

Bradley Beal reportedly wants a max contract from the Wizards.

According to J. Michael Falgoust of CSN Washington, the two sides aren't close on a deal just yet. "Bradley Beal has made it clear he thinks he's a max player and that's what he wants," Michael said. "I've talked to people on both sides all offseason about this. It seems to be Bradley Beal's decision. The Wizards are willing to make him an offer, an extension, but they're not going to offer him the maximum extension right now simply because they don't have to." While Beal has struggled with injuries during his three-year career, he's worth a pick in the early-middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

The Wizards and Bradley Beal are still not close to reaching a contract extension, according to CSN Washington.

Despite two reports within a month from the same source that the two sides aren't close, there is really no rush at all to do this. Neither side has shot down negotiations, and usually deals only happen when each faces a deadline. We're nowhere close to that happening, so expect the stalemate to continue.

Bradley Beal praised the Wizards' acquisitions of Jared Dudley, Gary Neal, Alan Anderson and rookie Kelly Oubre this summer.

"I like them. We have a great group of guys," Beal said in regards to Neal, Dudley, Anderson and Oubre. "I think Jared is going to help us out tremendously. Alan is going to help us out. ... I'm excited. We still have a great team, still have our core together and it's just a matter of going out and getting the job done again." The extra depth on the wings may allow Beal to have a little more rest during the season which could help him avoid another injury, and it looks like the Wizards are primed to make some noise in the Eastern Conference.
Aug 9 - 10:04 AM

The Wizards and Bradley Beal are still talking about a contract extension, but are not close to reaching terms just yet.

It's still likely the Wizards and Beal come to terms before the season starts. While Beal's injury history is a major concern, he still has superstar potential and complements John Wall very well. Fantasy owners can roll the dice on Beal in the early-middle rounds.
Jul 29 - 3:44 PM

Bradley Beal, Gordon Hayward, Mike Conley and Mason Plumlee are reportedly planning to attend Team USA's minicamp in August.

The United States has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to international basketball, so the camp battles for the remaining roster spots will always be a lot of fun. The U.S. is the heavy favorite to take the Gold in Rio during the summer of 2016, but teams such as Spain and Brazil will always pose a threat.
Jul 26 - 1:09 PM

Bradley Beal and the Wizards are still in talks regarding an extension but are reportedly not close to reaching a deal just yet.

It's believed that Beal and the Wizards will eventually strike a deal before the 2015-16 season begins, but if they are unable to come to terms, they will have to table the conversation until next year's offseason when he'll become a restricted free agent. The fact that Beal has dealt with three stress reactions to his lower right leg, in the same non-weight bearing bone, in each of his three seasons in Washington outlines the apparent risk here, but his mid-round upside is alluring. He's the epitome of a risk/reward pick.
Jul 22 - 11:24 AM

The Wizards and Bradley Beal are reportedly set to begin "serious" talks regarding a contract extension.

"We had to get past that first nine or 10 days of free agency. With that chaotic period over, Ernie [Grunfeld] and I will talk and see where we are," said Beal's agent Mark Bartelstein. With Wesley Matthews securing a max-deal from Dallas despite coming off an Achilles injury, it's likely that Beal will also be looking for that kind of money. However, if the Wizards are unable to come to terms with Beal this offseason, they'll be able to match whatever offer he receives on the open market as a restricted free agent next offseason. Beal carries quite a bit of risk, but his mid-round upside is tantalizing. He’s about as risk/reward as they come.
Jul 12 - 9:33 PM

Bradly Beal said he's working on staying injury-free for the 2015-16 season.

This is music to fantasy owners' ears as Beal has missed 54 out of 246 games in his three NBA seasons. "You just gotta get with a program," Beal said. "You got to figure out a program that’s good for you. I’m getting together with some of our trainers soon to do do that. We’re going to talk about what kind of things I need to eat, what I should stop eating and what I need to do to stay injury-free." If Beal can indeed stay healthy next season, he should be able to provide his fantasy owners with early-mid round fantasy value.

Bradley Beal said that he'll continue to take midrange jumpers.

"That’s definitely a shot that, even though a lot of people in the NBA don’t like, I’m going to continue to work on it. It’s an open shot and I think you’re probably more open shooting that shot than a lot of other shots," Beal said. Kobe Bryant is nodding his head in approval. Beal is also spending time this offseason working on his handles as well as creating offense for his teammates
