Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 12/13/15

Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal has said in the past he has no desire to play for any other team as he approaches restricted free agency next summer, even after Washington didn’t sign him to an extension. Yet now Beal is sidelined once again with another leg injury.

The prevailing thought is that Beal will still re-sign with the Wizards in the offseason. After all, the first-round pick in 2012 is still only 22 and is averaging 19.8 points per game this season. But what will be the cost? The Wizards might be able to bring back Beal at a lower rate because of his history of battling injuries. Beal will likely see a minutes restriction when he initially returns to the court, but what happens if Beal’s injury lingers the rest of the season, though? It appeared Beal was in line to receive a max offer at the start of this season, but that might be in jeopardy now.

That leads us to the question for today: What effect will Bradley Beal’s injury history have on his restricted free agency in the summer?

    Considering the premium teams put on outside shooting, I don’t think his injury issues will have an effect. He’ll get a monster contract from a team that believes its training staff can keep him on the court.

  2. Chuck Myron

    He’s averaging far more points than he ever has so far this year, and he’s still a potent long-range threat, so unless this absence turns out to be much lengthier than two weeks, I can’t see him not getting the max.

    I’m using the trade rumors app and my username keeps showing up as json-api. That’s not my username, how can I fix it?

    I can’t see beal getting a max he gets injured to often

      Hmm, that’s odd. We’ll look into that issue. Sorry you’re running into that trouble.

    Even if he is out for a prolonged period beal will still receive an offer for close to the max. The Wizards have no alternatives if he chooses to sign elsewhere and will match any offer beal receives in my opinion.
