I think he should get around what Barbosa got or more seeing as how he produces more in all categories (ast, rebs, pts) and will have another solid year or even better than last.... that being said: 5 years - 30-40 mil
i think 5 for 50 sounds with 10% increases sounds good. Better to get the contract issues out of the way before the season starts
I agree. Lock up Diaw and this team is set. Nash, Marion, Amare, Barbosa, Banks and Diaw is the core now. Lock up Diaw and you have all of them on long term contracts, then get ready for the next draft.
Here's to hoping that the Hawks finish with the 4th worst record next year. How sweet would it be to add a player at the 4th pick with the pick ATL owes the Suns?
5 years for 50 is probaly what Diaw will get. He is worth the contact though. If we can lock him up then we will be set for a championship run.
At this price, I think he's overrated. He can be worth it in Phoenix, in a year without Amare where he's asked to do a lot. But outside of Phoenix or teaming with Stoudamire, he will have a lesser role. Should Amare play most of next season, I predict his value will go pretty down.
And he's not sure he'll find another coach able to get all Mike got from him.
IMO 7-8 mil a year should be the right value.
