will after every full rookie contract the player is always a restricted free agent, it was a rule put in after the last CBA in an effort to force those young guys to stay with their 1st team instead of jet off to somewhere else the 1st chance they get because a lot of those early pick teams are usually the bad teams which are usually the teams that players don't want to stay in either

but i think demar is a 3 year contract with a 4th year team option that was picked up, something like that, either way its a 4 year total contract which means he has 2 more season after this one before we most likely sign him again, which is why i say he needs to develop in the next 1-2 years because i don't want to see another big $ contract based on the assumption that the player will live up to it by continual improvement in their game, i want to see the player earn the right to negotiate that price before its given to them
