Bradley Beal isn’t leaving the Washington Wizards.

The Wizards re-signed the All-Star guard to a five-year, $251-million contract as free agency opened Thursday, his agent told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Beal declined his $36.4-million player option for the 2022-23 campaign before inking the new mega-deal with Washington.

The Florida product has spent his entire career in the nation’s capital.

Beal has averaged 22.1 points, 4.2 assists, 4.1 boards, and 1.1 steal over 10 seasons with the Wizards. He finished second in the NBA scoring race in 2020 and 2021.

Washington has been reshaping its roster around Beal this offseason. The club reportedly acquired guard Monte Morris and wing Will Barton from the Denver Nuggets in exchange for sharpshooter Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and guard Ish Smith.

The Wizards also added veteran guard Delon Wright on a two-year, $16-million contract, his agent told Wojnarowski.
