Would you prefer a 7 year 49 million contract? I'd rather have the lower cap hit personally. And I don't think he has a "burning desire" to play in Philly, he's a professional.

I never said he had a "burning desire." My original point is there and still stands although Jester apparently thinks I'm censoring people by making them think.
Actually if you consider the time value of money and interest/inflation rates a frontloaded 8 year 52 million dollar deal is probably much more appealing than an evenly disbursed 49 over 7.
