“The good news is he’s back, he’s working out now, he’s playing for the Turkish national team. We expect him to come back in basketball shape and ready to play. For us to be good we need him to have a good season, we need him to be the player he was a couple of years ago. We feel like he can do that. I think he’s going to put in the work. We had a really candid end-of-the-season meeting, and we’ll see when he comes back in November. But we expect him to come back in good shape.”
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.
