To me, all this means is that their expecting us to give them the entire mid-level. I know he's a "cash cow" but I wouldn't do it. He's a good player but there are some scary parts of his game still and his summer, like Amare and Melo's was last year, will probably be filled more with rehab than working on correcting his game. I'll take a guy like Delonte West for $1.5 and spend my money elsewhere. Not the end of the world if we do but I'd rather go in another direction. If we do give the MLE to Lin, we better not bring back Fields. That Fields/Lin combo CANNOT be our backcourt next year.
