Rowell: "Basically with respect to Monta, he's started his rehabilitation and we think he's following it and doing a good job of getting back onto the court. We feel he is going to be healthy.
"The only reason that provison is in the document that we gave him was to protect the team long-term. We haven't spent more than the time you and I have spent talking about it now thinking about going forward with that."
We've been talking to Stephen over the last year about an extension and all the basketball guys in the organization were aware of what we were doing.
"They were aware." That's great that Rowell notifies the basketball people about his long-term contract negotiations with players.
"It's important to note, there are 130 players in the NBA that make more money than Stephen does over the next two years. It's not as if we've gone crazy with out extension with Stephen. He's paid for what he's delivered to the team."
