I could see him finishing around 30-points this year; we should be able to get him for $15M/5-years which doesn't seem unreasonable. If he slumps harder, you should be able to get him dirt cheap ~$2M. If he goes on a tear, that's what worries me. I'm a huge DD fan and while I think his defensive problems are overblown, he's definitely no Plekanec. Even if he finished with 40-points, I'm not sure I'd go over $3.5M-$4M.
I don't see how you can call $4.5M per year for 4 yrs a discount...
