Kendrick Perkins rejects initial Celtics offerPosted by Inside Hoops
A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE reports:
Kendrick Perkins is still focused on remaining a Boston Celtic after he becomes a free agent this summer.
Just as important, he wants to get a contract that he deems fair market value.
And the preliminary offer made by the Celtics, according to Perkins, won’t cut it.
Perkins told CSNNE.com prior to Boston’s 94-89 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats that the offer made to him was for four years around $22 million.
An earlier report by the Boston Herald cited two unnamed sources that indicated Perkins turned down a contract extension that was for four years and worth slightly less than $30 million.
“That wasn’t it. They offered me four years, but it was closer to like $22 million,” Perkins said. “You talking four years, $30 million! Shoot, that’s different. That’s a big difference.”
