John Wall May Take Less Money to Help Roster
Among the pressing issues going into the off-season with John Wall won’t be just about his health or his ability to build on his third year with the Wizards.
It’ll be center around whether or not he deserves, and ultimately receives, a max contract. The Wizards (29-53) can extend him up to five years though he has one year left on his rookie scale contract at $7.45 million.
“You never know how it goes. I just feel like … I’ll get what I deserve and those guys in the organization (will) give me what they think I deserve,” said Wall, who will train in Los Angeles during the off-season and link up with backcourt mate Bradley Beal. “The main thing with me is it’s not all about me. I’m not a selfish type of person, type of player. All I want to do is win. If we’re winning, I’m cool with anything. That’s all that matters to me.”
