Mike Wise: John Wall 'as good as gone' without extension negotiation this summer

It's hard to separate fact from opinion in Mike Wise's column on the John Wall Max Contract Debate (which is understandable, of course: it's a column), but this line was interesting nonetheless.

If the Wizards don't attempt to re-sign Wall this offseason, he is as good as gone. They shouldn't run the risk of upsetting Wall and losing him for nothing, simply on principle that he might be worth less.

That seems hard to believe given the obvious advantage the Wizards would have in matching any offer if Wall hits restricted free agency, but the idea that the Wizards shouldn't overrated principle is one that has been noted by several here as well.
