John Wall Thinks He Deserves a Max Contract

by March 11, 2013

The Washington Wizards are 15-13 since John Wall returned to the lineup following a left knee injury (Wall also missed parts of his rookie season with knee and foot problems.) The young, confident point guard thinks he “definitely” deserves a max contract extension from his employer once the current rookie deal expires — the Wizards have until the end of October to make a decision. Per Grantland: “Have you started thinking about your contract extension talks yet? JW: ‘I haven’t started thinking about that.’ Really? The deadline isn’t that far away. JW: ‘That’s true. Look, I’m just enjoying D.C. This hasn’t been going the way we wanted it to, in terms of winning, but I think we are building something here.’ Do you feel like you deserve a max contract? That you’re a max guy? JW: ‘I feel like I am. I do, definitely.'”
