I think it's still in the neighborhood of a $875K base salary and an additional schedule A and schedule B set of personal and team bonuses that can reach a total base and bonus salary of ~$3.9M/yr, pre tax. That's the maximum permitted. To get all of it, you basically need to go deep in the playoffs, I think.

That's a mandatory three-year entry level deal, based on age, and that is subject to the US tax structure.

So conceivably, he could be giving up a good bit of cash, if Ufa, for example offered him $7M/yr, post taxes, for at least three years.
