Bill Simmons suggests that PP might sign a three year deal for 51M or 17M per year. I would suggest that PP could command a 10m/3year contract after his present contract expires. So I agree with the 51M but over 4 years (21M+30M=51M).
So if PP was to accept a 4 year deal starting at about 10M this year with approximately 2M year increases(assuming this is allowed under the salary cap) then PP gets his money, remains with the Celts and the team receives salary cap relief starting July 1st and therefore it puts the team in decent position to sign a talented player.
