Agent: Wizards, Beal agree on 5-year, $128M contract
The Washington Wizards have agreed to terms with shooting guard Bradley Beal on a five-year maximum contract worth $128 million.
Agent Mark Bartelstein says the two sides came to agreement on Friday morning. The contract cannot be signed until the free agent moratorium ends on July 7.
Beal averaged 17.4 points in his fourth season for the Wizards. He has teamed with John Wall to form one of the most dynamic young backcourts in the NBA but has had difficulty staying healthy. Beal has never played more than 70 games in a season and has been bothered by stress fractures in his right leg throughout his career.
Yahoo Sports first reported the deal's completion.
