 He really was asking for someone to do the math here. He said it will be similar to what Ross got for the Raptors. 3 years 33 million, however that was in 2015.

 Whatever the percentage of the cap was in 2015, figure out the cap increase and that's around what Smart will get. So what closer to 14 million per year.

If Smart can average around 34-36% on 3pt attempts, he's going to easily get an contract figured around in the ball park of $16-20 million per year, at the very least...

If Smart wasn't such an dreadful shooter already, he's easily eclipse what Harris is getting. Harris is an great upcoming player that just shot 43% from 3, and averaged 14.9 PPG.

If we get a similar percentage of the cap to the ross contract (aka 13-15 mil a year now) for Smart, I'm doing backflips. In a world where Evan Turner gets what he got, I'm absolutely fine with Smart for that number.

The thing is this isn't actually the same world as when Evan Turner got his contract. the cap is expanding much slower, there's not nearly as much money in the league.

Right.

A common misconception about Evan Turner, or Crabbe receiving said overloaded contracts, is because the cap was supposedly going to increase by a few million, thus freeing up extra room for other teams.

Unfortunately, for us, that isn't the case, and I fear the Mavs will look at DSJ/MS as an unstoppable backcourt and overpay, especially with Smart's ties to his hometown Dallas.

Here are the rookie contract extensions from last year:

C.J. McCollum (Trail Blazers): Four years, $106,633,450 (story)
Steven Adams (Thunder): Four years, $100,000,000 (story)
Giannis Antetokounmpo (Bucks): Four years, $100,000,000 (story)
Rudy Gobert (Jazz): Four years, $94,000,000 (story)
Victor Oladipo (Thunder): Four years, $84,000,000 (story)
Gorgui Dieng (Timberwolves): Four years, $62,800,000 (story)
Dennis Schroder (Hawks): Four years, $62,000,000 (story)
Cody Zeller (Hornets): Four years, $55,625,000 (story)

I thinking that it will be between 62 mil and 84 mil.

I mean, that would be a pretty great backcourt. But I think they've sold themselves on Seth Curry and they seem poised to make a run at Cousins in FA, they may not be as much of a factor for Smart as you fear.

The Turner deal won't leave my mind .   Smart is clearly a better younger asset.

As a function of how much money is free in the league the current environment is nothing like the year evan turner got his money. There was something like ONE BILLION dollars in available cap space that summer. This summer there is More like 300-400 million. Also that money is more concentrated between something like 5 teams. Smart is also a restricted free agent meaning teams with money would have to tie it up for three days, that will likely prevent many from offering a contract until they work through their primary unrestricted options. I'm offering Smart 4/52, he wants more than that and we play out the season. He plays well and earns more, than great. We have match rights.

I thinking that it will be between 62 mil and 84 mil.

Don't forget Gary Harris just got 4 years, $84 million.

If I had to guess, I'd say 4 years, $70 mil would be reasonably fair for both sides and if a final deal is agreed upon it will be within +/- 10 mil of that, which is in the same ballpark as what you said.

GH was actually "only" 74 million guaranteed

Harris’ $74 million guaranteed changes it to $18.5 million per year. My understanding is the incentives to get it to $84 are STEEP.
