This really puts his insane extension into perspective, doesn't it?
- Extended him 1 year before it was even necessary (much like Derozan). Thus, BC outbid himself.
- Player option
- Trade kicker
The only thing missing was a clause that explicitly states "You are never going to get rid of me over the length of this contract".
