Giving Tyreke Evans a max deal: Does it make sense?

Tyreke and a max contract: Pretty tough thing to answer, yes? Or, no, depending on where you stand on Tyreke.

Where I stand? Let's start there. I don't think Tyreke is worth a max deal based on production. I think a 4 year 44 million dollar deal is probably as close to fair value as you could realistically offer him. There's no way he doesn't get that unless that's all he's being offered. (The 4 year 44 million is what Stephen Curry got FWIW in his extension he signed with the Warriors.)

As a result, Tyreke will probably get overpaid by quite a bit this summer as a result of being a restricted Free Agent.
