Right. Or, he could sign a short term deal for a couple more years. Under the new CBA it makes sense for teams to overpay players for shorter terms. Obviously players want to get both max salary and term...and as we've seen there are always dumb GMs who can't help themselves. But there has to be a price where a player would be willing to accept less years. How about 10M for 4 years for Hank? I guess the question is how much can he get when he's 36? Now I see why owners were pushing for shorter max contract lengths. It's hard to come up with two 4 year deals that will pay a UFA more than one 8 year contract.
