How does a rookie contract do that?
Just signed a SG who can do 2 things on the court to 9-10 million/year. I really really really hope there is a team or two willing to accept that price tag. I think we're stuck with this guy. So much for drafting Ross to push him. Flexibility has been lost.
Also how the word Drogba uses about that officiating is the word that's appropriate for that extension.
