You are way over-valuing a player who will quite possibly not be a regular starter his first 4 years of his NBA career, you can also include his 5th year as Miami(if they matched) will still have Lowry, Butler, 90 million dollar Robinson and quite possibly Oladipo in front of him. With at least 3 of those guys probably in front of him, do you think Miami may get out bid in keeping this backup in 2 years with Miami in the tax with Butler, Bam, Lowry, Robinson and probably Oladipo on the books? I think they will, even if they do want to keep him so you trade him in the next year for a younger front court player and/or some assets to continue to build around Bam in 3 years.
I'm not trading him when everybody in front of him has or is about to have 1 foot in the washed column. You want to have the argument against him that was made against Harden. Don't play talent off the bench because of "balance" then look at them and say you're getting bench money when they clearly have starter talent.
Saying Duncan is "ahead" of him is a joke. How many games did Duncan close out compared to Herro?
Only thing Duncan is a ahead is contract year.
