Washington Wizards Discussing Contract Extension With John Wall

We already know where John Wall stands on the issue — he’s looking for a max deal. The Washington Wizards are negotiating with their star point guard’s agent Dan Fegan on a contract extension. Per CSN Washington: “Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in 2010, is eligible for up to a four-year, max contract with the Wizards in addition to the final year remaining on his deal that will pay him $7.45 million next season. If he’s named the franchise’s designated player, Wall can get five years. If the Wizards cannot reach an agreement with him by Oct. 30, talks will have to be tabled until after the 2013-14 regular season. Despite missing the first 33 games because of a stress injury to his left knee last season, Wall had his best statistical output with 18.5 points per game and 44% shooting. He also averaged 7.6 assists. Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld wouldn’t comment on the situation or whether or not he expected an agreement to be consummated quickly. But if how quickly he moved in free agency is any indication, Grunfeld would like to get a deal done sooner rather than later.”

    He’s not worth max but he deserves whatever he gets.

  • Vince

    Very solid player but Wall is most definitely not worth a max contract.

  • spit hot fiyah

    if they don’t extend him he will most likely get a max offer as a restricted free agent any ways, assuming he can stay somewhat healthy and builds on the play at the end of last season

    What was Washington’s record with him last year?

    And that is why he’s eligible for a max deal.

    if you can’t tell why he is worth a max deal, you didn’t pay any attention to this season.

    Question, why is it that Wall is going to get a max deal and Stephen Curry didnt? Just out of curiosity.

    Wall seems to affect winning more significantly then curry did at this point. And Wall definitely has a larger impact in the performance of his teammates. .
    His potential is still much higher as well. Specifically on the defensive end

    Ah ok i gotcha. Makes sense.


    he should get the same amount as Derozan, 4 years 40 mil is more then enough

    Wall is 22, averaged 18/9 in 33 MPG last year, had a PER north of 20, and helped his team win.

    Derozan is 23, averaged 18/4 in 37 MPG last year, had a PER of 14.7, and scarcely helped his team win.

    Most importantly: Wall’s stats took a huge jump last year, while Derozan’s per 36 output and advanced stats have barely changed in 3 years.

    Derozan could still be a good player, but Wall deserves the max.

    all i have to say is that if you are not an elite player in the NBA you do not deserve a max contract and Wall will never be an elite point guard in the NBA to me he has be a HUGE BUST not in the sense of Mateen Cleaves as far as being washed out of the league but just being someone that has not improved his game since coming into the league that has been a mediocre player that has had mediocre numbers&stats and no F’N team success and also been the worst shooting point guard since 2010 in the NBA since his arrival Wall has not lived up to the massive hype that he had since high school all he has done in Washington is run Glibert Arenas out of town and a couple of stupid dances and he will never be an all-star point guard in the east

    Don’t comment in this thread please, that was a whole mess of stupid.

  • RKJ92

    If they don’t extend him the max I’ve honestly lost all hope for the Wizards.. this kid is a game changer, especially on the defensive end.. I mean c’mon this kid is a SOLID 6’4 point guard as well!

  • Nathan Shane Long

    what has he done in his career of any significance besides the “dougie” or the “john wall dance”
