That's the going rate for scorers off the bench who don't defend. Do realize that Crawford had a very good contract until Ballmer lost his mind and paid him 14 million, at which point we were lucky to get him out of here.

Lou is playing at a career high level. He's so much better than Crawford, but he's not worth what we paid Crawford on that last deal. That deal was just a big mistake.

Everything started with Doc or might be Ballmer I don't know, when they gave 12 million to Austin who played like a High school JV. Of course Jamal was a better player that time than Austin, why would he will agree a lesser salary when Austin is getting more.

Sure. The only factor in Austin’s favor is that he’s significantly younger with more upside. Players over 30 usually have to take a discounted salary.

As long as both sides are happy that's all that matters. I'm happy to have him back, that's for sure! So much flexibility going forward.
