He is a 16-10 player with kevin love shooting at 60% ts. He doesn't just shoot well fg% he is also a good free throw shooter. If he qualified, he would be number 3 in OREB to kevin love and demarcus cousins. Marc Gasol is getting 57 million in 4 years. Getting Pekovic for 60 and 5 is a bargain. Unless he decides to say 'f' it and get fat
DeAndre Jordan deserves 7-8 mil for what he brings. Marc Gasol has established himself in this league as an all-star and is better than Pekovic. Pekovic to me is a very nice complementary piece but not a legitimate number 1-3 option. He's more like a 4th IMO.
As others have mentioned, Perkins/Gortat money is what Pekovic should look to get.
Kendrick Perkins is awful. He averages 6 points and 6 rebounds on 55% shooting and 60% ft shooting. Pekovic is averaging 14 points and 7.5 rebounds in his second season on 56% shooting and 74% ft shooting. Pekovic is the better player. Gortat is going to get 5 for 60 too.
