If he doesn't, I'm sure Presti won't try to re-sign him and let him walk in the summer.
In all fairness, if he's not worth exactly $10-12 million, he's very close to it. The guy is averaging nearly 18 ppg in about 30 mpg and has a PER of like 25 right now. When you compare his numbers to the numbers of other guy's making $10-12 million at the 2/3 position, it's pretty obvious that he's worth at least $8-9 million a year.
