Even though John Wall is two years from free agency, the Washington Wizards are trying to lock up their All-Star point guard by offering a massive contract extension. 

On Friday, ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst reported the Wizards offered Wall the supermax extension worth $170 million over four years, but he hasn't accepted and "will take some time to consider the offer."

Wall signed a maximum rookie-contract extension with the Wizards prior to the 2013-14 season. He will make roughly $18.1 million next season and $19.2 million in the 2018-19 campaign, per Spotrac

Adding four more years to that deal would keep Wall locked into the Wizards through his age-32 season. Windhorst noted the 2010 No. 1 overall pick will meet with his family and agent as he ponders whether to accept the offer. 

In seven years with the Wizards, Wall has been named to four All-Star teams and was a third-team All-NBA selection for the 2016-17 season after averaging a career-high 23.1 points and 10.7 assists per game.
