Default Lin agrees to terms with the Houston Rockets

Sam Amick ‏@sam_amick

Per source, Lin's offer sheet is worth $5 mil in first season, $5.2 in the second, $9.3 in the third and $9.3 in the fourth (team option)

Sounds fair could very well have been higher.

The fourth year team option will be pretty good for the club.

Default Re: Lin agrees to terms with the Houston Rockets

we can resign lin to a deal after the 3rd year if he plays well

if Toronto were smart, they would have done the same in case plans backfired

knicks would have matched that fields contract if there was a team option

Default Re: Lin agrees to terms with the Houston Rockets

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

Default Re: Lin agrees to terms with the Houston Rockets

I think it was a back door type deal between the GM's.

It's basically a three year deal.

We'll match, 100% assured of that.

So turns out the Rockets may be upping the deal to a 3 yr deal where the third year is 14.9! Thats a lot of dinero He would be making more money than Chandler in his third year

Default Re: Lin agrees to terms with the Houston Rockets

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.

Default Re: Lin agrees to terms with the Houston Rockets

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.

Default Re: Lin agrees to terms with the Houston Rockets

Why would the team not match? Not matching doesn't free up any money.

They very well could have negotiated a smaller deal, but chose to allow lin to set his price.

Nothing but a formality imo.
