" In a way DD's contract is setting the market for Evans."
"As well...who is the better talent Tyreke Evans or DD?"
Some would call that debatable
, but that's not the topic. Evans got an offer of $1.5M/yr (another report had $2.5M/yr), but we'll not know if DD may have gotten equal or more. Not only different skillsets, but apparently very different personalities/characters, and some teams value the DDs of the world more. In any case, if you feel Tyreke is worth more, then you should be happy that he's getting more, right?
"it seems he is in play by MU."
Did I miss something? Where has MU put him in play? You're not talking the Bledsoe speculation are you? Because nothing about that story says anything of the kind.
