I don't understand the hate for this contract. In a couple seasons the salary floor will be like $73million. What else are they going to spend the money on? Are any top free agents going to sign with a rebuilding team in Salt Lake City? With Hayward, Burks, and Favors locked up, how else would they get to the floor? Hell, they could even afford to overpay Kanter and still be fine (I'm not sure if they will keep Enes though).
I thought Alec would re-sign for about $10 mil, and I'm glad he did. He definitely would have gotten a bigger offer on the market.
I like Burks at $10 mil a lot more than I like Klay at $17 mil. Klay is the beneficiary of the amount of defensive attention that Steph Curry commands.
Actually, think you are underrating Klay. I was very impressed with in in the World cup. He played a lot better than Curry. I don't think he is worth $17 million but he is a great shooter and an underrated defender.
