Why wouldn't he sign it? It likely gives him a higher salary then he might otherwise get on a one year deal by a significant degree and then if he has a good year he'll be free to negotiate a longer term deal worth more next summer.

It's simply business when a GM makes such an offer and it's simply business when a player signs it.
