    About what the production calcs had. Wonder what took so long, or if there were other conversations that fell through so they went ahead an finalized this?

    Given the way the market has gone thus far over the first day or so, that is a very reasonable cost. $17.5mil per year.

    He was a UFA. If he felt he was being underpaid, he didn't have to sign.

    Feels like an over payment just like with Ant but guess call it the small market tax.

    Was expecting 75, but 70 means a starting salary around 16.2 mil.

    This gives us about 4.3 mil of space to work with before hitting the apron.

    If Mitchell Robinson is getting 4/60 i think 2.5M more a year is a good deal for Nurk...not to mention I am guessing Year 4 has some partial guarantee or incentives in it.

    That is fair. Has not proved that he can stay healthy and is not an elite center even when. Hopefully he can continue the progress he showed last year.

    When he forces his way out, will you go with him?

    Not a nightmare to have a deal with Nurk that starts out under 16M.

    Or, and hear me out, he won't? They didn't under pay him, his track record kinds speaks for itself.

    Has injury issues, is inconsistent and soft. He got what he deserved.

    Which means he was sulking Nurk before....and hence, part of the reason he wasn't worth more money.

    Big Boy $$$ require Big Boy production and attitude.

    It's good deal for him especially when he took a team friendly contract last time.
