Consider the economic change, shift in his viewing as a player. What kind of deal do you think he couldve gotten last year? Over the next 5 years from that optout opportunity does he make more or less?

Obviously. He was coming off another spectacular season numbers wise.

He could have gotten a nice deal, maybe not regressed so much so fast as well.

last year he would have gotten about 12mill/yr over 5 yrs. That 60 mill. At this point he has his 21 or so mill from lst yr and he'll probably get about 4.5-5.5 mill after incentives this year. That's lets say around 26mill for his first 2 comparable yrs. It all come down to this yr though. A good yr and he's back in for a good contract, a bad yr and he's nearly done.

I don't think he'll ever come back from last year. For one, he's just not a good enough player to have a great season. Second, his style of play isn't worth investing in. He definitely should have opted out last year.

If Corey Maggette got $10m/yr last season, AI would've gotten around 3yrs/$36M. He would've had a lot more offers from GOOD teams.

Iverson was coming off a great year, where his team won 50 games and his stats were great, yet efficient. He probably would've landed a $12 million/year for maybe 4 or 5 years. But now, if he bounces back, teams may spend from 5-10mil on him for 2 years tops, just because most have cleared cap. He had an atrocious season in Detroit and even if he fully bounces back (25+ppg, 7+apg and 2+spg, not likely) he would be 35 at the end of the season, which would scare most owners and would limit the number of years in his contract.

Who would have offered him a 10 mil deal? Nuggets already wanted to trade him then.
