Didn't they only draft him #1 overall in the first place because he agreed to almost 1.5M under slot value and not because they thought he was the best prospect in the draft?
They haven't shown a real willingness to spend any money on their big league product under the new ownership yet, AND they...

No reason to do 10 years. 1 under the current CBA.

Dirk is older, but I wouldn't call him "on his last legs."
He was still a 20/7 guy last year, though admittedly he's kind of gone back away from his attacking post game that was a huge part of the 2011 championship game as he's gotten older. He's relying on 3s more again, and his deadly midrange...
