This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things XLV

On October 20, 2006, Boris Diaw, after one strong season replacing Amar'e Stoudemire for the Phoenix Suns, signed a five-year, $45 million early extension. Had the Suns not signed Diaw then, he would have become a restricted free agent in 2007, meaning the Suns could match any offer.

Diaw's averages fell substantially as Stoudemire returned and become the offense's top finisher again. Diaw would have less than half as many points and rebounds per game as Amar'e in 2006-07.
