Ok so there is other bonuses also in the package. But also consider this. Barnes would have to pay state income tax. In California the cost of living is on a totally different scale. On 5 million it's over 600,000 a year. Where as in Tennessee there's not state tax per say.

 

Factor in cost of living adjustment of say 200,000 a year and you're really around 4.2 - 4.4 million a year. 

Tennessee step up to say 3.9 million plus assistant coach increases and he stays. 

Just my two cents opinion.

Tennessee has made a counter offer. Barnes is praying about it. Honestly, praying and wanting to go to the most liberal crazy ass area the country should be a duh. You couldn't pay me 20 million a year to go to California. That place is all screwed up. That's just me

Funny, I feel like I've lived all of my adult life in the most conservative crazy ass area of the country.
