John Wall looks to remain a Wizard for life

The Washington WIzards spent a significant amount of money this offseason in the hopes of locking in their young core and eventually develop to reach the NBA finals. This offseason they matched the Brooklyn Nets offer sheet for Otto Porter with a four year 106 million dollar contract that made Porter the highest paid player on the Washington team. But that was short lived as The Washington Post reported that John Wall has agreed to a 170 million dollar contract extension that now makes him the highest paid player, the contract also integrates a trade kicker that will likely save the same purpose as a no trade clause.

John Wall now has a total of six years in Washington and has expressed his interest in staying a Wizard for life. John Wall came off, arguably, his best NBA season so far by averaging 23.1 points, 0.6 blocks, two steals, 10.7 assists, and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 45.1% from the field and 32.7% from beyond the arc. (Career highs in points, steals, assists, and field goal percentage) No doubt that Wall has been a great asset to the Washington Wizards on the court but his involvement, bond, and the impact he has to the Washington community have been outstanding.
