Okay, so before you all get after me for suggesting Rubio is worth max money...He isn't right now, I believe 14 million a year is great money for what he gives us.
My question though is...What else would we spend that money on over the next two years? If we give him the max now that locks him up especially when TV deals are supposed to raise the salary cap in 2016. The salary cap is projected to go up by a max contract from what I've heard.
So we have a few expiring contracts still, a lot of rookie contracts, Martin, Brewer, Budginer, and Pekosaurus. Are we expecting to bring in any top talent? Bring in new talent to play over our guys that we want to see on the court?
If we have to give him the max, sure let's do it and enjoy some great passing and defense and pray his jumper can become a weapon...(maybe not a sharp knife, but as damaging as a butter knife! ) We have 4 years of Wiggins and LaVine, 3 years of Bennett. The odds of all of them getting huge money is rather slim. Pek has 3 years I believe left to his contract.
