$5m/year takes into account the fact that it's a 2 year deal without a no-trade clause
That's not great value for a 55-point player, but the contract takes into account knowledge about his injury situation and past history. If he can recover even a fraction of his former ability, he'll be a steal at $5m.
And his former ability was quite good. Putting up just under a PPG with mediocre offensive players on your line being the focus of every opponent is fantastic.
