Well, you never just pay for the last single year. In a summer where Hudler gets $16M over 4 years, I think $7M for one year on Semin, especially for a team that still has to spend to reach the floor like Carolina, doesn't seem too bad.
Also, if there isn't a big signing bonus involved, this could be a bit of a gamble on the date for the new CBA. If the season starts in January, he'll just see like 4-4.5M of that. But even if it's the full year, I don't dislike this deal for them, given their situation.
