follow up

This is a follow up to my initial post on this blog, regarding Ersan Ilyasova's contract. As is often the case in the modern media, the initial reports of the contract were incomplete. The initial report was for 45 million over 5 years, which is correct but incomplete. Full details are still not available but recent reports posted on JSonline state that 5 million of the contract is paid in difficult to reach incentives. The 5th year is also not guaranteed. There were some reports that the 4th year of the deal were not guaranteed or was only partially guaranteed, but there was no further reports about this yet. JSonline is reporting the deal is basically 4 years 32 million guaranteed.
If this turns out to be the case I still think this is a bad contract, but not as bad as it looked initially, especially if the 4th year is only partially guaranteed. Even 8 million a year is too much for a role playing starter on a low seed playoff team.
I hope Ersan turns into a much better player than I think he will ever be. If not, the Bucks will be back to contract dumping in a year or 2.
