Default did the Knicks make the right move in letting Lin go for Felton?

and did they make the right move when they traded Gallo/Mozgov/Chandler for Melo?

They didn't let him go for Felton. They let him go because he went behind their back and asked for more money. The tax penalty for him in the third year would have been 50 million dollars.


And yes they made the right trade by getting Melo. Those guys wouldn't be with the team by next year.

Jeremy Lin betrayed us and trading for Melo was definitely the right move.

Wait... did Lin really betray you guys? I didn't hear the story. The last I heard he was just offered more and NY were expecting him to take less to stay.

= NY fans


fact is,
1)Lin did not get a formal offer from the Knicks. Since he was a restricted FA, the knicks thought they can be clever and match any offer so they just waited until he got one to match.
2) Little did they know, the Rockets were smart and used the Knicks pragmatism against them and offer Lin a big contract that they knew the Knicks couldn't have matched.

NY should be blaming their own organization for letting Lin go.

You never let an asset go for free unless that position is totally covered, which it isn't.

Although I dont think Lin is as good as some may think, he was an asset.

The Melo was and is totally justified.

This team would be lotto with just amare.

Pretty much. Guy is always hurt. Knicks were a .500 team even with him playing on MVP level.

Good to see you have barely watched the Knicks before. Remember the big issues between Lin and chemistry with Melo and other members of the team? Lin was going to get a big offer regardless, to think his agent would have let him sign with the Knicks for cheap is laughable. Lin doesn't fit this team as well as Felton does for the contract he was on, was totally not worth it financially or basketball wise.

Felton on 3 Mill year > Lin's big contract, for the Knicks

I read more into it and apparently there's only that one ny post story about the back stabbing and everything points to that story. From all other accounts it seems like Ny was playing games with the offer sheets and what not and was hoping other teams would low ball him so he would take whatever it is they wanted to pay him. It sounds like NYK fans are angry because he gave a number, found out he could get more, and didn't take the original amount. He's a backstabber for testing the market like the Knicks wanted him too, then finding a team that would pay him more than the Knicks would.

Lin didn't betray you

Since when is it betrayal to accept more money? Not like he signed with a rival team...even then, I would take the big money offer. Get real.

It's a pretty smart move. As long as he's a borderline starter level player a crappy team can take him on as an expiring and try to milk at least a little money out of the novelty. 15 mil expiring with some marketing potential isn't actually that horrible

They were a .500 team because the team was new, young and had significant cap room to spend in the offseason... and then we panicked and got raped in the Melo trade despite Denver having no leverage what so ever.

Now just imagine getting a max level FA to that team and with all the multiple picks..
