Bradley Beal explained why he decided to re-sign with the Washington Wizards for another two years.

Under his new contract, Beal will remain with the Wizards until the end of the 2022/23 season.

“Ultimately, I felt staying, the positives outweighed leaving. The reason being is because I had more control here. I have an organization who basically gave me the keys. ‘We’re gonna build around you, we’re gonna get guys around.’

If I go anywhere else, granted, it may be a good team, but I would be a piece. Who knows if my role would be the same? My role here, I love what it is,” Beal said during his appearance on the Lowe Post podcast.
