Should the Washington Wizards use the Stretch Provision on Ian Mahinmi?

In the summer of 2016, the Washington Wizards signed Ian Mahinmi, a 29-year-old center coming off the best NBA season of his then eight-year career. As a full-time starter, his first time ever filling that role, Mahinmi averaged 9.3 points and 7.1 rebounds with a field goal percentage on 0.589 for the Indiana Pacers during the 2015-16 season. The jump in production led to a jump in salary, and Mahinmi soon signed a four year, $64 million contract with the Washington Wizards. He made just $4 million a year during his four seasons in Indiana.
