Yes, he's worth ~9 mil / year more than DeMar. But DeMar isn't worth 9.5 mil / year so that doesn't say much.
In the end, I'm a bit surprised that they ended up giving him the Rose contract, if this is true. But in the big picture, 15 mil or 18 mil, you can live with it. If their choice was 18 mil / year or take a risk that George will sign a short deal / player option this summer and leave in a few years... Then 18 mil / year is the right choice.
