Bradley Beal will not participate in Team USA training camp or play in the World Cup as he's expecting the birth of his child in late August or early September.
Amidst a wave of players withdrawing to focus on the upcoming season, Beal brings a far more legitimate reason to the table. It's widely expected that the Wizards will offer up a three-year, $111 million extension the second they can, though whether Beal wants to sign up for a long-ish term future in Washington remains to be seen. With John Wall out of the picture for next season, Beal is looking at another monstrous fantasy season and will be a surefire early-round pick.
