CollegeSpun explains this well...
quote:

This is because of the “Derrick Rose Rule,” put in place in the collective bargaining agreement in 2011. The rule allows players signed to a five-year deal to receive a higher percentage of the salary cap if they either 1. win MVP (as Rose did) 2. get voted as a starter to two All-Star teams or 3. make two All-NBA teams while on their rookie contract. Davis had not won MVP or been a starter on two All-Star teams, but he did make an All-NBA team last season. So, if he had made one this season, he would have qualified for the Rose Rule, which would have made his contract worth $145 million over the five years.
That would have been a nice bonus, eh?
