3 years, 4.5M though? Sign me up!
He's getting paid a total of $32.667 million over the next 14 years, which amounts to an annual payment of $1.76 million. So, as long as he's given a decent paycheck, I think he'll be more concerned with fit and whether the team can contend as opposed to making as much money as he can. He's pretty set for the next 15 years.

Doesn't mean a team will overpay so that he simply can't refuse. If Brad May's report is true, though, it means two of his biggest contenders are already out of it (Toronto and Montreal).
