It was a free agency contract, not an extension.

A lot of people went nuts over it, partially because the media misreported the value at first (5 years, 35M instead of 5 years, 30M), and partially because so many people undervalue Amir. I tried to get the right numbers out in the open, but it was hard back then to be sure quickly what the right numbers were. I thought it was a fair deal - and now I think it's a steal.
