$16 Million for a Title

Is $16 million too much to pay to get a ring?

Kurt Thomas is not worth $16 million for one year.  He's not.  But that's not the issue.  Is it worth $16 million to have KT around for the playoff series against the Spurs?

I'd answer yes, but I'm not going to argue that here.

What I want everyone to do is consider this and answer the following questions for yourself.

If the Suns hit the Spurs in the playoffs next year, do you want KT on the roster?

Now, do a decision tree analysis.  What are the chances that he helps the Suns win a title?  Multipy that by the value of a title.  Compare that to the value of no title by the money saved.

The decision tree says you keep Thomas.
