His deal also includes a fourth-year option. In addition, should they decide to trade him at any point, it includes a 15% trade kicker.

Wall will receive $37.1 million total through 2019, according to TNT’s David Aldridge. He will receive a total of $207 million through 2023.

On July 10th, Wall reportedly turned down a supermax deal from the Wizards. That offer was reportedly four-years, $156 million.

The 26-year-old has been with the Wizards since he was picked with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He has spent the past seven-years with the team.

This season, he played in 78 games, all starts. He averaged a career-high 23.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, a career-high 10.7 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.6 blocks per game.

In 500 career games, including 488 starts, he’s averaged 18.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 9.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.6 blocks. He’s averaged 36.1 minutes per game.
