    Bradley Beal has yet to receive a contract extension offer from the Wizards, according to Candace Buckner of the Washinton Post.

    Beal will be eligble to sign a three-year contract extension worth $111 million with the team on July 26. It's reported that the team intends to make the offer and that Beal has expressed in staying a Wizard for the rest of his NBA career as long the team would have him. He's a young star that established himself as an elite talent last season, but the Wizards are in a half-baked rebuild holding pattern right now and there's some speculation that they could move on. That said, it's unlikely that they will not lock in their best talent for the long haul.

    After winning the NBA Cares Community Assist Award on Monday, All-Star guard Bradley Beal said that he is “definitely” open to discussing a contract extension with the Wizards this summer.

    The 25-year-old shooting guard was snubbed from the 2019 All-NBA teams and therefore missed out on being eligible for a so-called “supermax” contract extension, but he remains eligible for a multiyear extension in July. And while his name surfaced in trade rumors following John Wall’s season-ending achilles’ injury in February, Beal said that Ted Leonsis and coach Scott Brooks have each independently told him in recent weeks that he would not be moved.

    According to Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington, the Pelicans have a “sincere interest” in exploring a trade for Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal.

    The Wizards seem to be determined to keep Beal, but they currently don’t have a general manager, and perhaps their stance could change. The basis for trading Beal centers on maximizing his asset value with two years and $56 million remaining on his original five-year contract signed in 2016. Washington will likely struggle next season with fellow guard John Wall out and an evolving roster that currently has only five players with guaranteed contract. Beal is coming off an outstanding season in which he averaged a career-highs of 25.6 points and 5.0 rebounds, and almost single-handedly kept the Wizards in a chase for a playoff spot until the season’s final weeks.

    Bradley Beal will be among the players present at Team USA training camp ahead of the FIBA World Cup.

    Beal was snubbed for the All-NBA teams this year but his play deservedly caught the eye of Team USA. The latest batch of invitees features some big names, including Damian Lillard, Kevin Love, Jayson Tatum, C.J. McCollum, Brook Lopez, Kyle Kuzma and Eric Gordon. James Harden, Anthony Davis, Kemba Walker and Donovan Mitchell are also expected to play for Team USA this summer.

    The Lakers are looking at adding a litany of veteran players via trade this offseason, including: Kyle Lowry, Derrick Favors and Bradley Beal according to Sean Deveney of Sporting News.

    The Lakers acquiring the fourth pick in the 2019 NBA draft will make them all the more competitive on the trade market. It has been well documented how LeBron James' teams have preferred established players over rookies, and that should be no different after coming off of the disaster that last season's Laker team was. The connection between the Lakers and Beal has been established for months, but it's worth keeping in mind as we get closer to the draft. Aiming to add vets like Lowry and Favors also makes sense, but obviously Beal would be the big get of that bunch.

    Bradley Beal tallied 16 points, five boards, four assists and three 3-pointers in 17 minutes of action in Tuesday's season finale defeat to the Celtics.

    Beal was expected to not log very many minutes in this meaningless game for the Wizards. He had a career year averaging over 25 points, five rebounds and five assists per game while playing in all 82 games for the second season in a row. He'll finish right about top-15 in 8 and 9-cat formats, benefiting from another John Wall injury. With Wall expected to miss almost, if not all, of next season, Beal will have high expectations going into next season.

    Scott Brooks said that Bradley Beal will not play a lot of minutes in Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    Chasson Randle should benefit from a few extra minutes, while the Wizards can also deploy Troy Brown Jr. at shooting guard for stretches. Beal can still put up numbers against a Celtics team playing without none of their starters tonight, but this news does cap his ceiling.

    Bradley Beal scored 13 points, adding two 3s, five assists, three boards and a steal on Sunday night against the Knicks.

    Beal was not at his sharpest tonight going 5-of-17 from the field, but can be forgiven at this point in the fantasy season. Beal has been a top-10 value in 8/9-category leagues and should pick up next year right where he is leaving off this year. His backcourtmate Tomas Satoransky did not fare much better, chipping in seven points, seven assists and two steals in 32 minutes on the floor.

    Bradley Beal scored a team-high 25 points on 9-of-19 shooting with two rebounds, two 3s and five assists in a tough loss to the Spurs on Friday.

    Beal really took his game to another level this season, especially after John Wall went down to injury. With Wall expected to miss most of 2019-20, expect Beal to be a hot target in the corner of the first and second rounds of most standard-league fantasy drafts.

    Bradley Beal on played just 22 minutes on Wednesday against the Bulls, finishing with 19 points (9-of-18 from the field), four rebounds, two blocks, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    This was the third lowest minutes total Beal has played all year, but was still able to put together a fantasy friendly line, even if it is below his standards. In other news, Beal added that he plans to close out the year by playing every game, eliminating the shutdown risk many expected with the Wizards' season effectively over.

    Bradley Beal (potential rest) will play on Wednesday night against the Bulls.

    Last week Scott Brooks hinted at some upcoming rest for Beal, but so far so good. We'd be surprised if he doesn't get at least one night off the rest of the way but fantasy owners have to be pleased that he's been playing even after Washington was officially eliminated. Beal's turned in a fantastic season and gets bonus points for playing out the string.

    The Wizards fired president Ernie Grunfeld on Tuesday, but they are not planning to change their head coach, according to multiple sources close to David Aldridge.

    Wizards will be conducting a GM search immediately and a lot will depend on who they hire. Front offices usually get a fresh start and are allowed to bring in their own coach so this report is preliminary to say at least. Washington will have to make a choice on whether to rebuild and trade away their main assets or stick to the current plan and build around Bradley Beal.

    Bradley Beal scored 34 points on an efficient 13-of-25 from the field on Friday night, adding six assists, two steals and two triples in 39 minutes against the Jazz.

    Scott Brooks hinted before the game that Beal might rest, but he certainly had no restrictions tonight. Fantasy owners should be wary of Beal sitting out on the weekend, as it does seem likely that he'll get at least one game off with Washington's season over and Beal having carried an immense load all year.
