TheScore app sent me an alert an hour or so ago saying he was signed, but the terms were not known yet.

Shoe to tell us why this is a terrible deal in 3...2...1... :lol: Just kidding.

Actually, I think it's fine. Don't know what he is getting paid, but I doubt overpaid.

You should read this article and also see my comment down below

Sean tends to allow his fandom to push him towards the optimistic high side in many cases. He's not nearly as cynical as I am . :oops:

But good stuff there to understanding this player....(from both of us if I might say so)

2 years, $8.25 MM with a possibility of .5 M in incentives. Good value.

The projection for him was 2 years, $16 MM.
