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. Jul 1 - 10:49 AM

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.

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

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.

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.
Apr 11 - 6:41 PM

Bradley Beal (pelvis) is questionable for Monday against the Nets.

He's probably a little closer to doubtful in the final road game in a back-to-back set. The Wizards will likely want to get a longer look at rookie Kelly Oubre, but it's still tough to trust him in fantasy. Garrett Temple should also play a lot.
Apr 11 - 3:57 PM

Bradley Beal (sore pelvis) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

Not good. Beal missed a few games in March with a similar injury, so the Wizards may want to shut him down for the final two games of the season since they have nothing left to play for. He finished with three points, one rebound and one steal in eight minutes. Marcus Thornton started the second half and would be worth a look for the final two games of the season if Beal misses more time.
Apr 10 - 1:34 PM

Bradley Beal scored 25 points with six rebounds, three assists, six turnovers and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes against the Pistons during a Friday loss.

It'll be interesting to see what the Wizards do with Beal now. He's been healthy for almost a month now, but they might be careful with him now that they are out of the playoff hunt. His fantasy owners should plan on him playing the rest of the way, but keep an eye on his status in the final three games.
Apr 8 - 11:53 PM

Bradley Beal scored 25 points during a 121-103 win over the Nets on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He was terrific with a 11-of-15 shooting line. Obviously not having John Wall (knee) tonight helped Beal in a favorable matchup. It's unknown what Wall's status will be for Friday night, but Wall did have a limp on Wednesday. The Wizards are clinging to their playoff lives and will be knocked out with their next loss or the Pistons' next win. The Wizards play the Pistons on Friday.
