I’ve seen people talking about signing Barnes for 14-16mil/year and idk any reason why this man, in the prime of his career about to sign likely his last big contract, would take anything less than the 4yrs and $80mil he’s coming off. If anything, he’s probably gonna want $100mil, no?

Good point, I just don’t think he’s going to get 100M and I’d be pretty surprised if he got 80M, too.
