“It’s hard to avoid it. I have a phone so I see it all,” Beal said. “I can post a picture of Deuce and someone will be like ‘man, he needs some Miami sun!’ and I’m like ‘ok?’
The Wizards offered Beal a three-year, $111 million extension over the summer, and he has until Oct. 21 to accept it. In the NBC Sports story, Beal said that he “hasn’t even thought about it.”
The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson reported that a source close to Beal would be surprised if Beal accepts the extension. Beal feels a measure of loyalty to the Wizards, according to the source, and will likely see how Washington’s season unfolds before making any decisions.
A lot can change in the NBA in a short period of time. For example, who knew that Paul George wanted out of Oklahoma City? It’s no secret that the Heat have great interest in Beal. For things to go their way, they need Beal to become disgruntled and tell the Wizards that he will only sign an extension with the Heat.
Will that happen?
