The Washington Wizards are planning on offering Bradley Beal a max three-year, $111 million contract extension on Friday, the first day the guard is eligible to sign, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

“At the very first moment allowed, we are going to offer Bradley the full max extension,” Wizards GM Tommy Sheppard told Wojnarowski, while adding the team would also consider one- or two-year extensions.

Beal, 26, still has two years and $55.8 million left on his current contract and has until Oct. 21 to sign the extension, which would begin in the 2021-22 season. If he declines, Beal could be eligible for a four-year $155 million max extension next summer, or a five-year, $254 million super-max if he earns All-NBA status, according to Wojnarowski.

“There are moments in a career where there are big decisions to make, and Brad will work through everything and figure out the right thing to do,” Beal’s agent Mark Bartelstein told Wojnarowski. “There are nothing but great feelings for (owner) Ted (Leonsis), Tommy and (head coach) Scott (Brooks). They’ve treated Brad wonderfully.”

Beal, a two-time all-star, averaged 25.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and five assists last season, all career highs.
