If Kevin Martin gets $55 Million, & Monta Ellis gets $66 Million then I'm pretty sure that James Harden is getting just as much.

Both of those players start. Harden will probably get paid similar to Ginobili.

Ginobili got paid at 32 by the Spurs.

Harden will be 23.

Are you really going to play stupid right now that his value is going to be high when he becomes a Free Agent?

I'm not playing stupid. Teams can't overpay for him if he's signed to an extension before becoming a RFA. And, like Westbrook, I think he'd rather chase titles and win games than take a huge contract to play for a lottery team.

But he could have waited a little longer and been eligible for the Derrick Rose rule bonus and decided against it.

Yes he could have been eligible for said rule, but only if he resigns with OKC... if he was a free agent, other teams couldn't offer as much as OKC could.

As per the new CBA, a free agent can make the most by resigning with his current team.

He couldn't have made MORE money by playing for a lottery team.

True.

However, hes a young All Star PG and his contract isn't a matter of perception for his value. You pay him $16 Million or $18 Million. What's the difference? OKC was going to match it regardless.

Harden's contract will be a matter of perception as to what OKC values him at and what other teams value him at.

Only lottery teams would overpay Harden, Harden gets to play with a championship contender and his best teammates with Durant.

Poor, fat, ugly, Clay Bennett. Durant and Russell don't play well together and now he's gotta pay him $80+ do do so. That is until he's forced to trade him. By then OKC will be the Wizards.
