Contemplating a hero call with A high

$250 multi-day tournament with $50 bounties. Level 12 with play concluding at level 15. About 20% of the field remains. Hero has recently moved form a broken table so only about 3 orbits with the villain, who has not made any particularly aggressive moves. Villain is younger guy in early 30s. Hero just won a moderate pot defending BB with K9o and calling turn and river with to pair.

Blinds 1k/2k/300
Hero 70K (35BB) Villain 50K
Folds to Hero in SB. Hero raises 6k Villain calls.
Flop (15K) 4d 4s 2d
Hero bets 6k Villain shoves

    Unknown passive player makes 2.33x pot 2bet, just muck it and move on.

    Here are my arguments for a call
    1) shove seems more likely to be trying to leverage maximum fold equity. If villain has trips he's much more likely to call or raise smaller.
    2) Preflop call makes it less likely he has a pocket pair. With under 30BB there's a lot of incentive for him to raise or shove better preflop. There's a really good chance I have the best nothing and he has a draw.
