Yeah, IIRC, Simmons predicted $50 mill over 5 years if another team tried to sign him. He thought another team might try to outbid the Nuggets. It looks like Denver got lucky by avoiding having to match any offers. Perhaps the other teams knew Denver would match anything in the $45 mill range and just didn't want to pay the 50.
