IDK man, Parsons, Lin and Asik are gonna make well over 40 million combined next year. Ariza at half his salary is a much smarter move and will make them a better team in the end.
People have compared Parsons to Lance, but at that salary try comparing him to Paul George, or James Harden, or Russell Westbrook.
And I'm not discrediting him at all, he's a nice player. But he is not even close to 15 a year.
