Doan's at 4.5 right now, and I wouldn't have a problem keeping that amount, maybe going to 5. 6 is definitely too much.
This is where DW could really come in handy. Family is super important to Doan, and DW is a player's GM. I can see Wilson making some tweaks with his contract in non-monetary ways to help with that- maybe assuring him time off during the season between games to see family or something like that. Even if we don't offer higher dollar, I can see Wilson doing a good job of selling San Jose as a great total package- perennial contender, close to family, exciting changes in coaching staff, great centers to pair with, amazing place for family to come visit, etc.
And as for leaving AZ, I doubt his family will leave. Beyond the photography business, Shane and his wife own a horse ranch. I can't see them dropping that. His kids are also school age, with his oldest highschool-ish, so I don't see them wanting to move, especially for just a few years. How important is it to be close to them during the season? We'll just have to see.
