Not bad not bad, looks like he is staying put in Denver now. His contract is around the same as Bargnani at 14.5mil/year

Bargnani makes nowhere near that. Bargs deal if i'm not mistaken was 5yrs/50Mil.

THIS is overpaying. How Gasol only got 4 years when hes 4 years younger and Nene got 5 baffles me. Its sad how teams continue to give guys in their 30s with injury histories 5-6 year contracts.

Mehh, i see guys in their 30's in other sports getting 10yr contracts. Look at Pujols getting a 10yr deal at 31 (32 in january). Now that is fucked up. Plus NeNe just turned 29. He'll be 34 when the deal ends, not that bad imo.

Gasol may have wanted that 4th year out so he can sign another big contract in his prime.

Agreed on the long contracts though.

crazy ain't it.

nene will be (maybe) worth the money for 2 years. Then from then on ur starting to massively overpay. They know this of course but they decide they need a big-name C, so give him the contract he asks for.
