Beal, who has spent his entire seven-year National Basketball Association career with the Wizards, is coming off the best season of his career.

It appears the New Orleans Pelicans don't intend to stop with the Anthony Davis trade or the No. 1 overall draft pick.

The Washington Wizards are planning to offer Bradley Beal a three-year, $111 million extension this offseason. That includes the fourth overall pick in Thursday's draft.

Meanwhile, the Wizards were said to be determined to keep Beal, but they now don't have a general manager, and perhaps their stance could change.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, several teams are monitoring the situation of Beal and if the Wizards will eventually put him on the trading block. Signing a max extension now would essentially give him a five-year, $167 million contract, which works out to an average of more than $33 million per year.

The Washington Wizards are willing to add a lot more money to the contract Bradley Beal is now playing under, but the two-time All-Star is in position to take a gamble on himself if he wants to go that route.

Beal, 25, averaged a career-high 25.6 points per game last season to go along with 5.5 assists and 5 rebounds, while earning All Star honors and playing in all 82 games for the second straight season.
