I've seldom seen so much nonsense in such a short space. Because he got hurt, which you think is their fault, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, It's their duty to offer him a 5 yr max? If he opts in, they're bound to pay him $31MM not to play next year, that's what their duty is. Beyond that, it's whatever two sides agree on. No one is obligated to do anything. And, no, it won't change the NBA landscape, whatever that means. He's not the first player to get hurt, you know.
David Aldridge cites league sources as saying several teams including Warriors will still try to max him out because even at 80%, he'd be a 20-25 PPG scorer.
Sure, that's possible, but if the Warriors offer that it won't be out of any sense of duty, it will be because they think it's the best way to build their team. And he might not take it. They were going to offer that much before and most everyone said he wasn't going to take it. If he gets another max offer he could still be gone. Everyone's going to do what they think is best for themselves, as usual.
