Based on the previous CBA and what we know of the latest offer, the most we can offer DD starts at 25% of 58 million and stretches over 5 years (including his final year of his rookie salary) - as the designated rookie extension player - with 6.5% raises. So that amounts to:
He would have to be extended prior to the start of the 2012-13 season. So we'd have to decide if he is worth this amount after either this shortened season or with only the info we have now.
No way he signs for less than 4 years. Would he sign for Bargs
money? Would we go above that if we won't? All very good questions.
