we will in fact never know, but somehow his presumed MW will play into his next contract
in 2013/14 Dirk was not a top 10 player any more, but close. PER, wshares etc. saw him round position 10, he was an all star and receives all nba consideration. the 15th highest paid player made round 18mn in 13/14. that is my benchmark.
however the two prior seasons Dirk was not closely as valuable and he turns 36 before the next season starts.
As rival GM i d offer him 15 for 1year, the salary of the 22nd highest paid player in 2013/14.
in 15/16 Dirk turns one more year older. his best case is still top 30 player but the worst case is already 15-20 min of role play in 50 games or so. i go inbetween these 2 scenarios and offer 10.
with similar logic i offer 5 for the 3rd and 3 for the 4th if Dirk wants more guaranteed money.
Dirks MV comes out at 15/25/30/33 for 1/2/3/4y.
i think Dirk will give a generous discount and will come back for 2y 20 or 3y 25 maybe with some player option for another year
