Beal's name has come up often in the rumor mill dating back to last season, especially with point guard John Wall potentially set to miss all or most of the 2019-20 season with a torn Achilles.
Washington has Beal under contract for two more seasons at an average annual salary of nearly $28 million.
The 25-year-old is a seven-year NBA veteran who has been named an All-Star in each of the past two seasons. With Wall missing much of the 2018-19 season, Beal enjoyed a career year.
Beal set personal bests across the board with per-game averages of 25.6 points, 5.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals while shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from beyond the arc.

Despite his big-time production, Washington went just 32-50 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2015-16 and just the second time in the past six campaigns.
Without a healthy Wall, Beal's supporting cast is questionable, to say the least. Washington has six restricted free agents, including guard Tomas Satoransky and big men Bobby Portis and Thomas Bryant. It also has a $20 million club option on forward Jabari Parker for next season.
There is a great deal of uncertainty regarding who will be with the team in 2019-20 and who won't, but Goodman's report suggests the Wizards are committed to keeping Beal for now.
That could change if things don't turn around for the Wiz soon, especially since Washington could potentially lose Beal for nothing in free agency come 2021.
Beal is undoubtedly the most exciting aspect of the Wizards heading into next season, and unless the Wizards hit it big with No. 9 overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft, Washington fans may not have much to cheer for next season beyond their All-Star shooting guard.
