John Wall agrees to monster extension with Wizards



It was reported a few weeks back that the Washington Wizards had offered John Wall a huge contract extension, but he had decided to think it over before deciding to agree to those terms. Well, here we have it, late on a Friday night, news is breaking that Wall has agreed to stay in Washington through 2023.

Wall’s extension is for 4 years and $170 million. And to think, some people think he should’ve stayed four years and received his college degree rather than going one and done. I think he probably got the better end of that situation.

Quick shoutout to our own Jack Pilgrim for the number crunch and the subtle jab at the haters. Even more impressive than that number is what Wall could potentially be making per game in the final year of his contract.

A huge congrats to Wall and his family. This is exactly what Coach Cal is always talking about when he says he wants to change lives for these kids. It won’t be long until we’re hearing about deals like this for a bunch of former Kentucky guys.

    I hope Reggie Jackson doesn’t sign for $171 now!

    Love that Jack Pilgrim shade!

    To put John Wall’s numbers in perspective, he’ll be making more *per game* in his final year than Bobby Knight made *per year* at his final coaching job.

      LOL, Knight’s Ohio State degree in history/government didn’t quite get him there.

      For every John Wall-caliber college player who leaves early – there are 100 who shouldn’t…

      He is the exception – NOT the rule…

    Seems like he learned enough to get by in his one year of college

    Good for John Wall to get that money. $570,743 per game is ridiculous.
