He's definitely the best big that's been available the last two off seasons (not including Dwight's "availability" the last year or so), so though he's certainly not worth a max contract, I can understand the reasoning to overpay him, considering guys like DJ get $10 million dollar just to sit on the bench in the fourth quarter and lose minutes to the likes of Reggie Evans in the playoffs.
He should get paid. Just not paid like he's a first ballot HoFer.
So we agree
. You disagree with me about his potential but the idea that he will be far overpaid is something we agree on. I understand the whole big man premium deal but he should still be under max. What is the exact number for this contract anyways with new CBA? Like 4 years/60 mill or something?
