Well considering his injury, It makes sense they didn't extend it. When he's started, bayless has shown potential, and I think if something can be made from jose, either by dealing him for another positional need, or amnestying and signing for another position of need, why not give bayless the reigns at 4.1 million? Going based on his statistics as a starter, it is worth the risk. It's not like he's played 5 games as a starter, so it's a valid enough investment. Considering we gave Amir 5 mil a year, and he averages 10/8 or so, and we don't complain about his contract, why not bayless at 4.1 million?

DanH if you could help us out with some stats it'd be great, im working from my phone so it's tough to pull these things out.
