There's many question marks regarding the offseason for the Washington Wizards, including on what's gonna happen to their star point-guard, John Wall, who reportedly wants out.
Still, the Wizards are trying to run it back and make the playoffs for the 2020/21 season, especially after being only one spot away from making it at the NBA restart in Orlando. In order to make this they will try and get all the help they can, including keeping some of their most important players.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed Davis Bertans has opted to stay with the Wizards and signed a five-year, $50M deal with the organization.

From Latvia, the 27 year-old had a career year with Washington last season. After participating in the MTN DEW 3-Point Contest during All-Star Weekend, Bertans finished the season averaging 15 points per game on 42 percent 3-point shooting.
Also, Washington was able to pick-up Center Robin Lopez from the free agency. The Center, who spent last season on limited minutes with the Milwaukee Bucks, signed a one-year deal with the Wizards.
