The key will be if Richards wants max $$$ or lion's share of max $$ and increased cup chance by giving team more cap compliant options.
I don't know they'll do it, but the fair thing would be to make a very, very easy base of 3.5m just to show up, another 1.5m is easy to earn bonus and additional bonus of another 4m or so, but those are harder targets to earn.
Still, if earns it, great.
If he turns into Drury 2.0, then under this scenario we'd have him at only $4m or under per, half of what he may actually sign for.
Personally, if we could get him to sign for such a short term deal (4 years) I'd be fine with us giving him 7m/per. That's a totally fair deal for both sides.
