The star shooting guard was widely expected to return to the Wizards in free agency after turning down his player option earlier in the week. Last season in Washington, Beal averaged 23.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game. He shot at a 45.1% clip from the field, but recorded a career-low 30% 3-point field goal percentage. A wrist injury limited him to just 40 games on the year, so he'll be looking to bounce back in 2022-23 under his massive new contract.

Beal has been the subject of trade rumors over the past few years, but his new deal with the Wizards has cemented his place in Washington for the long haul. The new five-year, $251 million supermax deal will keep Beal in Washington through the 2026-27 season.

The 29-year-old has three All-Star appearances under his belt and was enjoying his best stretch of basketball the previous two years before 2021-22's wrist injury. In the 2019-20 and 2020-21 NBA seasons, Beal averaged 30.5 points and 31.3 points, respectively. His ailment certainly contributed to his decrease in production last year, so the Wizards are hoping he'll be back to his old form before long after signing his new mega deal.
