Washington Wizards Discussing Contract Extension With John Wall

by July 16, 2013

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.”
