does anyone know how things like this affect contracts going forward? for ex, does dd permanently get and added $600M/yr, are wages accrued on a % basis, do the bonuses reset (and therefore must be re-attained each season), are bonuses cumulative (for ex, can one get say an allstar bonus one year, and again the second year compounding the raise? things like this can make a substancial difference in the value of a contract over a longer term
I tried to explain that above, but perhaps I didn't make it clear.

Incentives apply to each year of the contract independently. So in the years DeMar makes the allstar game, for example, he will get that 600k bonus. In the years he doesn't, he won't, and will be paid his standard 9.5M. It's not a raise - it's a bonus.
