C. He's always hinted at wanting to play in Canada.

If the money was equal i'd definitely think he'd join another team, but the fact that he took that 2 year 22 mill deal from Phoenix knowing they weren't going anywhere and then demanded a subsequent 3 year deal out of them knowing that they STILL are going anywhere, shows that in the latter stages of his career he's going for as much money as possible rather than a ring.

This. It doesn't hurt that Grant Hill has stated he's interested in perhaps joining the raps... I wonder if someone knows something we don't?
