Sure, but I don't think it's a stretch to say that he's going to top $100M over 4.

Another thing to keep in mind...His current deal is heavily deferred. He's owed $100 million for the next four seasons, but by the end of the deal he'll only see $60M of it. $40M of it is paid over the next five years after the deal. So it's worth a lot less.

It's an easy opt out for him.
