John Wall would be 'hurt' if he didn't sign extension this summer

Yesterday was apparently John Wall Max Contract Interview Day. On the heels of a CSN Washington report that "signals point" to Wall getting a max contract, Wall told Michael Lee of the Washington Post that he would be "hurt" if he didn't receive a new deal this summer.

"I would be hurt. I feel like anybody should that feels like they are a franchise guy and proven themselves and still working to develop and get better. But this is a business and you have to deal with the stuff that comes with it and goes with it. I leave that up to those guys, but I love playing for D.C. I love this team, my staff, my teammates."

Wall is eligible to receive an extension this summer that would kick in before the 2014-15 season. Because of NBA rules, the Wizards have exclusive rights to negotiate with Wall from July 1 to October 31. If the Wizards and Wall cannot work out a new deal before then, he will become a restricted free agent after the 2013-14 season.

Lee reports that the Wizards have "budgeted to keep Wall with the organization for a long time," but that's not exactly news. Of course you would plan on keeping Wall for a long time. As discussed yesterday, the question is price (max or no max) and timing.
