If the Wizards would have finished with a slightly better record last season Beal would have been named to one of the three All-NBA teams. Beal averaged 25.6 points per game last season.

A Quick Glimpse At Bradley Beal’s Contract Situation
Bradley Beal currently has a flexible contract by today’s NBA standards. He currently has 2 years and $55 million left on his current contract. However, come July 26th he can sign a three year contract extension worth $111 million. This will bring his contract to a total of 5 years, $167 million if he signs the extension that will be offered to him on July 26th. It is looking like Beal will be unlikely to sign that extension. There is good reason why he may opt out of doing so. If Beal makes an All-NBA Team next season, he will then be eligible for the Supermax from the Wizards. The Supermax would bring that contract to around 5 years and $200 plus million dollars.
