Re: Earl Boykins opted out of 3.2 million for 07-08
Hard to say if the decision was a poor one. It's clear by now that he will not get another offer worth $3 million, so he surely regrets the decision. But I think his goal in the first place was to find a longer term deal that pays well over 3 million for the whole length (such as 6 million over 3 years) - he wasn't assuming that somebody would offer him 5 mil a year or anything.
He took a gamble that wasn't neccesarily a stupid one, and it didn't pay off.
