Report: Rockets to offer Lin 4-years, $30 million in poison pill contract. http://cbsprt.co/MJd1Ju Dolan's wallet better have PEDs.

This would take Nash off the table IF Knicks match

I personally am a linsanity fan. But this is ********. Played like 20ish games and no one knows how consistent he will be.

But if we do sign him for sure I guess lowry is out for good?

I'd match that if I was New York. Lin got so much upside. He is young, has good size, intelligent, and is very marketable. He has a chance to be a good player for years to come. New York would make a huge mistake to not match that.

Knicks will absolutely match. This deal only hurts them in year 3, by year 4 Amare & Chandler both come off the books.

Knicks were prepared to offer Lin their max of 4/25m, looks like HOU will make them pay an extra $5m, but not the end of the world.

More like WTF are these other GM's doing.

Hibbert - max deal

Gordon - max deal

Fields $20m!

Asik $25m!

Lin $30m!

Insane deals... even a new CBA can't save these owners from themselves.

IndyRealist
07-04-2012, 11:26 AM
It's pretty simple, really. He's worth 10x that in international TV rights alone. And it look like Houston may lose Goran Dragic, so they still need a PG if they're intent on trading Kyle Lowry.

I don't think Lin is a restricted free agent. If Lin signs with Houston, that's where he's going.

Honestly, I'm from Toronto a fan of only the Chicago and Toronto, kinda hoped Lin could get over here so they can bring the nerd pre game hand shake here too, but yeh WTF is Houston thinking....? they got goran + lowry now they want Lin too? WHY!?!?!?
honestly a couple days a go reading lin was gonna get 40 mill i was like wow rly jumping form 700K to 40 mill?
30 mill still seems like a lot of money for Lin, but he is one of my favourite players and NO im not a linsanity bandwagoner nor is it becuz im asian, just becuz i like his game. But yeh 30 mill still to much for what he has proven to be, Id say 20-25 would be good for him for now. :o

07-04-2012, 11:36 AM
When all the big names flock together to the bigger markets it leaves the other teams to make these types of offers so they can fill the seats. They have a ton a cap space so why not? Worst case, they get to screw with the Knicks a little bit.

Win-win for Houston.

It accomplishes the same thing. Years 1 and 2 the same if it was 40 and Knicks screwed big time in year 3.

Rumors had Rockets offering 32-40 mil so i guess 30 mil is somewhat better if the knicks want to match. The knicks will probably match.

1st year- 5 mil
2nd year- 5.2mil (?)
3rd year- 10 mil?
4th year 10 mil?

not sure the logistics

07-04-2012, 11:41 AM

Not worth matching, But doaln only cares about money. Lin will be back

ccg34
07-04-2012, 11:42 AM
It should be matched. Lin, Shumpert, Melo, Stoudemire, and Chandler will be one of the most talented starting lineups in the league. They will most likely add Jason Kidd and JR Smith on the bench too. If they remain healthy, I can see this team being the the 3rd or 4th seed in the East.

If the Knicks match this basically means they have to break up their "big-3" in 2 years and we all know the 1 guy they can't trade.

cssdmark
07-04-2012, 11:49 AM
Okay Knicks lets figure out how we can get Nash, if not lets get Lowery and let Lin go to Houston. Houston is so desperate they just offer any player they see too much money. Please Knicks lets get Nash or Lowery then we can sign 90 year old, Jason Kidd to be a backup. I am all in.

But everyone knew that Lin was going to get offered that type of money, Why is everyone shocked. As much $ as linsanity brought in , He will fill the seats in every arena. I can remember about 7 or 8 away games that they cheered for him louder then the home team.

The source said the Rockets will offer Lin $5 million, $5.2 million and then plan to jack up the third and fourth years to as much as $10 million.

The poison pill just ****ed the Knicks. 5 million and 5.2 million is pretty cheap in all honesty (considering the amount of marketing potential coming with Lin). Will the Knicks even match this if they have to eat $10 Million in the last 2 years.

John Walls Era
07-04-2012, 02:39 PM
This is a really dumb move. 30 million is way too much for him.

Yes if it was in equal increments. But its not. First 2 years, 5M is actually cheap since he sells tickets and has shown he can at least play [small sample]. Rockets can easily eat his 3rd year away after making all the endorsement money and then use him as an expiring in the 4th if he doesn't pan out.

He won't be selling any tickets as Houston isn't an overreaction fan base like New York that they get their dicks hard about everything. Second, I think Lin was exposed to those couple of weeks before he got injured, starting with that game on national tv against Miami where he looked like a 5th grader.

Competitive wise I HATE it.

I was never a Lin fan during the Linsanity situation. Maybe because of all the hype ESPN had about hi, but I dont know how this team is going to be good next year. Since were losing Dragic and Lee and most likely trading Lowry this is our roster:

Lin/Lull???(love his game)
Martin/Lamb
Parsons/White
Scola/Patterson
Asik/Camby

Not the BIG moves I expected this summer. Its just beginning but still...I like the Asik signing even though we overpaid a bit.

That being said, Knicks fans are one of the best fan bases and I respect the hell outta them. But the New York fans who get caught up in all the fake stuff like stock market value, media, papparazzi and all that crap are all phonies.

You are so dis-informed...Lin has nothing to do with Nash do you realize that?..sign and trade with Nash doesnt take away from signing Lin..its all about Tax which Dolan has tons of money to pay with..he's been doing it for over a decade now. Not only does it have anything to do with Nash , the Knicks can get both AND go out and use their MLE on someone else..get your facts right man...Knicks plan is to get Nash in S&T AND match Lin..not one or the other..only way it would be one or the other is if PHX wanted Lin in the deal which they apparently dont wan't

This won't even be about screwing NY at this point.

Mavs have no serious PG right now, and Dirk's clock is ticking.

Houston is losing Dragic/Lowry. They'll have no PG.

Toronto has no Marquee player to show for their trouble, and now that they have Fields, I wouldn't put a big run at Lin past them.

Lin will get bank, and even though alot of fans THINK that Grunwald will match all comers, according to Forbes even just matching the Current Houston contract of $30M will cost the Knicks $35M in Luxury Tax... that's $65M out of pocket.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/allenstjohn/2012/07/04/houston-rockets-make-play-for-jeremy-lin-with-50-million-poison-pill-free-agent-contract/

It seems inevitable that Lin will get higher offers... I wouldn't put it past Grunwald to let Lin walk if the price tag gets dear enough, then making a play at a PG like Ramon Sessions, Felton or even Kidd and trying to make do.

Not possible.

You can't match under Arena's then S&T.

Lin has to AGREE to a normal S&T. And with the Knicks over the Cap, the MOST they can offer on a S&T is 4 years, $25M.

The Houston offer is Already going to be 4 years, $30M. SO unless you think Lin is going to take a $5M+ PAY CUT just to be Traded, it just isn't going to happen.

Lin isn't going to be S&T'd. Anyone who thinks he is is living in fantasy land.

Lin isn't going to be S&T'd. Anyone who thinks he is is living in fantasy land.

guess knicks are just going to be stuck way overpaying him

knicks need to be thinking sign and trade, lin for dragic...now that would be a great move for ny

well Dragic is UFA, he is demanding a 10 million a year contract, and it seems that the talks between the Rockets and him have fallen apart, after signing Beasley today and Gordon to an offer sheet, PHX apparently has gin up, he is now meeting with the 'Cats

so I don't think a S&T with Dragic will be possible, maybe Lowry, but I doubt the Rockets would do that, they could get better value for him

Agreed. The Knicks don't have enough to get Dragic.

And I'm not sure the Knicks have enough of the RIGHT pieces to trade for Lowry, not without giving up someone like Shumpert (which just trades one problem for another), and if they were hesitating on giving up Shumpert for Nash, no way they do it for Lowry.

Not to say a Lowry trade would be impossible, but with the PG shortage going around, I wouldn't put them as a favorite for Lowry, and certainly not Dragic.

LOL at the Rockets and Raptors. All these moves, all this money, and both will just end up with the 11th or 10th seed in their conferences.

If you don't have a star, don't bother overpaying for role players. Just build in-house until you can get that star. Apparently, Houston and Toronto didn't get that memo.

The Knicks are also losers here, as they'll either end up overpaying for a PG, OR they'll end up with no real PG.
