Klutch Sports Group, which represents Wall, shared a photo of Wall signing the paperwork alongside his famous agent, Rich Paul. https://twitter.com/KlutchSports/status/890324502764236805 The Washington Post had a full explanation of the contract when it was agreed upon last week:
Wall, the 26-year-old point guard who has played all seven seasons with the Wizards, will be tied to Washington for at least the next five years – two on his current deal, and three on the extension before he can opt out.

Through the life of the contract, Wall will earn 35 percent of the salary cap. [The Washington Post]
