Danny O'Neil: Okung "By the Numbers"

The Okung deal and hold out is more interesting than I thought.  We were notified as benchmark contracts for Williams, Berry & Haden came in, and the imaginary slot system a lot of us seem to apply suggested the ballpark range for the contract had pretty much been outlined.

Really, looking at this, there's a greater range, between overall money, guaranteed money, for Berry and Haden, than most of the "slots" as I've noticed.  Relatively speaking it's a pretty big range.

Which partially explains why this contract hasn't gotten done sooner, but more interesting to me, is the opportunity presented to Idzik & Schneider to get a very favorable contract put in place.  

Or maybe Okung will get money on the bigger side, I dunno, but it will be an interesting study of this regime's negotiating acumen.  In the offseason they came off as poor stewards of non-liquid assets.  Here, they may put a little more polish on the coup of an inaugural draft they had.
