Would Oden HAVE to accept full salary next year?

Hey everyone, quick question. The Oden article talked about his salary offer next year having to be in the $8million range due to his draft status or he becomes a restricted free agent. Could he reject it, become a restricted free agent and then accept a much lower offer from us to stay in Portland? I realize Portland would have the option to match any other offer but he doesn't HAVE to accept a larger offer from somewhere else does he? Just seems like if he's the quality guy he seems to be and wants to thank Portland for its patience (and money), he stay on for far less than he's worth healthy (like league minimum) just to see how it goes.
