John Wall Will Take Time To Consider Wizards' Extension Offer

Share

If you haven't been paying attention to the value of National Basketball Association contracts recently, prepare to spit out your coffee. According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, Washington offered Wall a "supermax" extension for four years at almost $170 million.

Yup. You read that correctly.

Wall is coming off the best National Basketball Association season of his career. He has two years left on his current contract, and this offer would bind him to the Wizards through the 2022-2023 season. That puts his salary at a relative steal of just $18 million for the 2017-18 season.

Just because a deal hasn't been reached doesn't mean much. But Wall apparently isn't rushing to sign the deal, and will take some time to consider it, Windhorst says, citing sources.

Wall has been vocal over the past few years about his contract, though it's only due to unfortunate timing that he's not making the same amount as some of his top-tier colleagues.

The Washington Wizards would reportedly have interest in a sign-and-trade deal for Paul George centered around Otto Porter and a future draft pick. Wall led the team to a 4-2 first round victory over the Atlanta Hawks, including a 42-point performance in Game 6.

KCP and Otto Porter would be good fits for the Sixers, and possibly Porter more than KCP, with Furkan Korkmaz officially said to be coming over from Turkey for this coming season.

Wall, however, is seemingly in no rush to ink the deal.
