Two contracts worth considering according to one league executive, are the one signed by Omer Asik last summer and the one signed by Al Jefferson in 2013. Asik’s deal is considered a mistake leaguewide, but it went for five years and $58 million, almost $12 million per year. Jefferson signed a three-year deal worth $40.5 million, or about $13.5 million per year.
