Bradley Beal becomes eligible for a contract extension this offseason with the Washington Wizards, but doing so would compromise their cap space for 2016.

The Wizards intend to pursue Kevin Durant next offseason if they have sufficient cap space.

The Wizards are committed to giving Beal a max contract eventually, but hope to time it in a way that is similar to what the San Antonio Spurs did last offseason with Kawhi Leonard.

Beal would become a restricted free agent in 2016 and could become unrestricted in 2017 if he were to play for the qualifying offer of $7.5 million.
