Sources: Thunder Asking Price for Steven Adams ‘too high’

Sources told Heavy.com that the [Oklahoma City] Thunder are seeking a draft pick, a young player and salary relief for [Steven] Adams.

“They set the price too high,” one league executive said. “That’s what you’d expect and maybe it will drop as the year goes on. It’s tough to take on his contract (two years, $53 million remaining) and give up picks and players. Most teams are pretty well set at the center spot now, you have a big guy and you have your small lineup. You can’t just take on a contract like that. There isn’t a big number of teams who could take him.”

In a commitment carrying leaguewide ramifications, Washington Wizards All-Star guard Bradley Beal has agreed to extend his deal for two years on a $72 million maximum contract, agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports told ESPN on Thursday morning.

Beal’s extension, which will begin with the 2021-22 season, includes a player option for 2022-23 that keeps him out of free agency for three more seasons and guarantees him nearly $130 million over four years.

Assuming that Beal, 26, declines his player option upon reaching 10 years of service in 2022 to re-sign with Washington, he would be eligible to sign the largest contract in NBA history: five years for $266 million.

To leave Washington in three years, Beal could sign a four-year, $198 million deal with a new team.
