Turned down max to get Jefferson gets $65M deal from Wolves. Jefferson is good but going to offer him max that is CRAZY. or is it just me? He was probably so stunned by the 65m offer, he wanted to take it before they came to their senses. Why so much?

I assume a 6-year contract? If so, it's not bad. That's Brad Miller / Troy Murphy money.

The think it is 5 years but the big story is, they were going to give him max! But, decided to take this deal, in the middle of the season against his agent's request.
