John Wall has a lot of money in front of him. The Washington Wizards franchise player and former Kentucky star point guard has been offered a four-year extension worth about $170 million, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
The Wizards star still has two years left on his current contract and will sit down with his agent and family to discuss the extension offer, Windhorst reports.
Wall will be entering his eighth NBA season, all with the Wizards. He was voted an All-Star in each of the last four seasons.
Wall is coming off the best NBA season of his career. He led the Wizards to the Eastern Conference semifinals where Boston edged out Washington in seven games. For the season, Wall averaged a career-high 23.1 points per game and 10.7 assists per game. He also notched a pair of steals per game.
The lightning-quick guard was named SEC Player of the Year in his lone season at Kentucky in 2009-10. Wall averaged 16.6 points per game, 6.5 assists per game and nearly two steals per game for John Calipari and the Wildcats.
