I don't think that was ever the intention, Zards. I think the intention was first to trade Beal, and then to panic. :)

What's it sounding like?

Is it the usual "overrated player" comments from non-Wizards' fans?

Mia Heat fans are sick to their stomach.. :lol: :lol:

Does that trade kicker mean anything - considering he's making the max? Isn't it rendered ineffective because it would push him over the max, and by definition you can't go over the max?

I don't think he is making the max, the 30% max that is. His current contract is based on a 25% max and I think he is simply having that extended with maximum raises (8%, I think). But that's a little less that what he would make if he waited until 2021 and then signed a new 1+1 contract (rather than an extension of his existing one). A new 1+1 contract signed in 2021 could be a 30% max deal.

I think you are right that that trade kicker in his 2021-22 season would be limited by the 30% cap. However the kicker for his 2022-23 (when he is a 10-year vet) could presumably bring his contract up to 35% of the cap.

Sheesh, this stuff is hard. So even though he's signing it now, because the new contract doesn't take effect until 2021, the max to be used for whether or not the trade kicker should be tacked on would be the max when the new contract kicks in - if I'm understanding that right. But it'll probably end up costing less than the 15% - if he does get traded.

Yes. I think that's right. The trade kicker is a non-zero raise, but probably not the full 15%, at least not for the 2021-22 season. It might balloon his 2022-23 season salary a full 15%.

Trade to bring in players around him maybe?

15% or not, would still love to see him in a Wolves jersey. Take any player(s) and picks you want. Your team was wise to get him to sign something at least. Great skills, better competitive spirit.
These are my opinions.

Jalen shouted out Tommy Sheppard - apparently they were in Denver at the same time

Bradley Beal signing a two-year deal with the Wizards sounds like an amazing deal for the wizards. At least that's what these analysts for the Washington Post are saying.

Congrats Wiz fans! I love that he’s staying and I hope Wall comes back strong and ready to play.

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis expanded on his personal relationship with Beal and how the organization was able to convince him to sign an extension (via Matt Wyrich of NBC Sports Washington):

“Brad and John are way closer than the media portrays,” Leonsis said. “They are also deeply immersed in the culture of the NBA and history of the NBA. Having a great backcourt is priority one and why would you want to, if you’re a great player, be a sidekick, if you will. And is that leading to happiness? I mean that’s the amazing thing that you see. You’ve never seen as many unhappy people as you’re seeing in the NBA.”

Leonsis believes Beal has bought into the new identity Washington is trying to develop. He pointed to other stars around the league and pondered why they’d sign with teams that aren’t prioritizing them as their No. 1 players.

“If you get a young player and they’re a part of building your culture and the team, the culture really becomes theirs,” Leonsis said. “That’s the key thing and so if you’re gifted, and you’re gonna get paid in the NBA, why go play and be the third wheel? It’s counter-intuitive to me. Like, it’s LeBron’s team in LA. How’d it go last year? Did anyone look happy in LA? So Brad and John and the players here, they’re a part of something and it’s gonna be really, really hard. But [they’re] in it together.”
