    By hiring Scott Brooks in late April, the Washington Wizards completed one of their major tasks for their offseason. Now the Wizards can turn their attention to Bradley Beal, who will be a restricted free agent this summer.

    Beal has said all along that he wants to re-sign but only if the money is right, and according to Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post, the young Wizards guard believes he deserves max-level money:

    "I want to be valued the right way," Beal, 22, said from Japan, where he visited as part of a promotional tour for the NBA and attended a playoff viewing party with fans. "I feel like I'm a max player and that's what I'm looking for. If Washington can't meet that requirement then I may be thinking elsewhere. I'm pretty sure that they probably won't [let me go]. At the end of the day, that's where I want to be. I think a deal will probably get done but you just never know."

    He's talented but way too injury prone, but still very young. Reminds me of Eric Gordons situation.

    I think they end up paying him, they have no choice anyway...

    He's still very young but imo a bit overrated and he seems to be a bit to much injury prone for his age...

    I wouldn't even care if the rockets through the max at him. Play harden and beal in the backcourt together and just go with it.

    To be fair, no one thought Klay was a max guy at the time either.

    This is right up Mark Cuban's alley. What's another max contract to him when he's got Parsons and Matthews - an all-star lineup of scrubs making top dollar. The trifecta would be complete.

    Beal has been in the league for less than 6 years. He has 0 all star games and 0 1st/2nd/3rd all NBA teams. That would put him at just less than 25% of salary cap or $22-23 million for first year and small increases there after.

    Lilliard was initially signed for a rookie max extension contract. It was estimated to start at $21,000,000 which becomes $120 for 5 years.

    However, if Lilliard was smart, he would have actually made the contract "percentage based as the max contract is based percentages of the salary cap. That way when the cap estimate increased, it would increase his salary.

    Also, in this past year he made his 2nd all star game and will more than likely be voted to at least his 2nd all-NBA team. Both of those accomplishments actually should retroactively bump (if he was smart with wording of the extension) into 5th Year 30% Max" criteria. That would effectively make his contract just less than ~30% of the cap or $26-8 million the first year. It would total in the range of 5 years for $150-5 million.

    Didn't the Wizards get offered to trade him for Harden and they turned OKC down? Whoops.
