Re: Raps offer sheet to Landry Fields
The whole point of this signing is to get Nash away from NYK. PHX was interested in Fields, and for Knicks to acquire Nash they needed to sign and trade Fields as part of a deal to get Nash. With this deal, Knicks either match Fields, try to throw in Shumpert for Nash if Nash agrees to take less than 9 mil/yr. This move effectively takes NYK out of the running for Nash regardless of if they match or not.
As for Raps getting Fields... really hoping NYK matches...
