As it is now, Ersan will be Henson's expensive backup in a few years. Changng Millsap for Ersan is costing you probably only an extra million per year. I don't see why all the fuss.
Also, I am not so sure I see Larry and Henson averaging a combined 25+ ppg 2 or 3 years from now, if ever. You typically want 30 ppg from your front court starters. Else, it's the typical back court high-power offense style Bucks that annoys us all by making us live and die by the long jump shot against any given team. I am tired of living through that for most of the past decade.
It will be more then one million, Millsap could easily get 11 million a year.
Also, you really don't think that in 3 years that frontcourt won't combine for 25 ppg?
Larry will get his 10 ppg, maybe he will improve on the offensive end and average 12-13.
I seriously think it's near a lock that Henson will average at least 15 ppg in 3 years. He has an extremely solid post game for a rookie, and has a good knack at getting to the rim, not to mention his incredible length.
Either way they will be good enough on the defensive end to more then make up for any possible scoring problems.
