His argument is just because there's nobody to sign to replace him
doesn't mean you need to give him a max contract.

But that's part of the gamble that GM's do all the time.
Overpay for a guy hoping that he'll reach his full potential.
And LaVine has shown growth in his game every season.

His defense has VASTLY improved next to Alex Caruso and Lonzo Ball.
Just the other day, LaVine was talking about how calm and relaxed DeRozan is in the 4Q, and that he's learned a lot from him.

And when LaVine gets even better at 28 and 29 years old,
that max deal is going to be one of the best contracts in the league.
