See what I am confused about is right before the trade deadline it was reported that GMDM tired to work something out w/ DeMo, where DeMo wanted 2+ years and GMDM could only offer a single year. Now obviously we don't know the numbers, but even if it was a high $2m to low $3m number (would be a very reasonable guess) why wouldn't DeMo have taken it (in hindsight) his family and kids are growing up in the Valley and love living here. One of his kids even plays on a local travel team. All things being equal if your DeMo wouldn't you much rather to continue to play in the Valley? I suspect this is an instance where an Agent completely mis guessed the market for his client.
