You can come up with all the reasons you want to like he's exceeded expectations at every level, or whatever you wants to say. Nothing justifies holding out as a 21 year old with a combined 52 points your first two seasons, and insisting they pay you like a 25 year old that has had numerous 55 point seasons.
Insisting they pay you on faith at that age is ridiculous, whether he becomes what he says or not. You're coming off your ELC as a 2nd round two way forward. You're not a friggin rock star, just sign a fair $3.5M per contract and prove your worth like everyone else.
i've said it constantly that 3.5 mil is too much for him. he should be making 2.75-3.25 realistically. but that's not going to happen as you're paying slightly for potential so 3.5 is about right due to what he should be at the end of the deal.
