does that mean that its houston or ny for Lin? or could lin be involved in a s+t to a team like dallas or milwaukee or whoever
why would Lin be foolish enough to sign with a team that doesnt think he can play enough to even make their roster last season? shouldnt he see that he is just a pr move for them or does he really believe a coach that didnt want him before will want to help him now?
if ny does let him go to houston does it benifit them at all to do a trade? give the Knicks Motiejunas in a sign and trade and its all good

This would normally be the point where I say I told you so but Id rather just ask you guys if youre still as certain about resigning him. Not even trying to sound like a hater. There are point guards that Im actually a bigger fan of that Im not willing to give that money. 15 mil in the deciding year for our "big three". That a whole heap of money for even an established player let alone a guy we cant even definitively say will be a top 10 pg in the league. At the very least, our decision just became less of a no brainer.

If Lin can average 14/7 in the first two seasons, then he's underpaid in those two.
The backload is Dolan problem, and his money isn't my concern at all.
It would be different if the team wasn't with a high payroll prior to.
But no way Lin doesn't get matched, no need to debate.
Everyone knows hes getting matched. The debate is about whether he SHOULD. I would have let him walk regardless but I wasnt totally against the original deal. This new one however is a bit much. I think Houston is just trying to stick it to us now out of spite. Theyre trying to screw us over like Toronto did because they know we will match any deal. We are gonna pay for making decisions based on marketing...ironic.
