I don't think the original offer is so unreasonable. That is a TON of savings for a team that has lost a lot of money in recent years. It also means that should the opportunity arrise they can use that cash to sign/resign other players.
You are correct, but I think it might be 7 years. That's why so many people warned Wang about this deal. Insurance won't cover a 15 year contract. It's far too long.
