From Kelly Dwyer at Yahoo!
"If all of this seems a bit much, let's focus on a pair of moves basically vetted out by a pair of writers you should trust implicitly, Steinmetz and Kawakami. It seems that Chris Mullin and Baron Davis were pretty close on a three-year, $39 million extension for BD, which seems shocking in its reasonability. You don't get a lot of that in the NBA.
That wasn't enough for Rowell, apparently, who decided to work on Mullin's proposed deal after the negotiations and took a year off the thing. That was enough for Baron, as he jumped back to Los Angeles soon after surprisingly (to us, at least, on the outside) opting out of his contract."
Certainly sounds reasonable for the best player on the team, the reason the W's had so much success the past two years.
