No doubting Deng has talent, but I don't think he'd be commanding $72 million unless he had a breakout season, which might happen this year.

I truly believe this season will catapult him to the elite of the NBA. He will be the new Scottie Pippen....

Paxson will let him become a restriced FA and then see what his market value is and pay it, thats his style. I love Deng but 72 mill is out of the question just right now, one day he may be worth that much tho.

No way.. that would be absurbed. Wait and see what Josh Howard gets and I think that would be comparable to what Deng gets.

I also don't see Deng getting $72 Million. The only person that deserves that would be Michael Jordan or any big name player we got that helped us get to the Championship (then again maybe not).

I agree about waiting to see what Josh Howard gets and go from there. But I believe that Pax and Luol's agent might get something done before the season is over and still have enough for Kirk, Andres and B-Jizzle (thank you Scott Skiles) to sign them.
