We should say hell no to that deal. Giving Rubio that much more than the full MLE (-$9 million) is like giving Favors $16.9 million last summer. It's just bad business to give a player that much more than any other team would give him in the open market. I'm all for appreciating our players, but if the full MLE is Rubio's top market (which I believe is the case maybe less), then you give Rubio $9 at the most. The difference between $11 and $9 isn't a ton, but it's more than what Niang is scheduled to make next year. We need everything we can get to find another solid contributor.
