The Washington Wizards will not have to worry about whether to pay Bradley Beal this summer.

Beal was not named to any of the three All-NBA teams when they were announced Thursday, meaning the 25-year-old guard will not be eligible to sign a four-year, $191 million extension this summer. If Beal had qualified, the Wizards would have had a major decision to make about their two-time All-Star, and likewise, Beal would have had to seriously consider whether to accept it.

Beal was coming off a career year in which he averaged 25.6 points, 5.5 assists and 5 rebounds per game.

Stephen Curry, James Harden, Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook and Kemba Walker were the six guards named to All-NBA first team.
