WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Wizards say they have re-signed shooting guard Bradley Beal.

The team did not announce the terms of the deal Tuesday, but the AP reported this month that Beal agreed to a five-year contract worth $128 million.

Beal, 23, was a restricted free agent.

The No. 3 overall draft pick in 2012, he averaged a career-high 17.4 points in his fourth season, pairing with John Wall to form one of the NBA’s most dynamic young backcourts.

The biggest question mark about Beal is health. He has never played more than 70 games in a season and has been bothered by stress fractures in his right leg.

Last season, he made only 35 starts and 55 appearances as the Wizards went 41-41 and missed the playoffs.
