Lin - Only one offer to sign
Lin apparently now claims that he did not have a choice; that there was only one offer. For the reasons stated in an earlier post regarding the "statute of frauds," I do not buy it. There is very substantial evidence that Houston improved an offer already made and accepted. it is unlikely that the offer was not "memorialized" in some reasonably formal way and was simly awaiting legalistic details.
It was clear that the Knicks and apparently everyone else anticipated that the formalized offer would reflect the originally announced offer. I firmly believe that Lin could have held Houston to the first offer. In any event, it would have been a public relations nightmare for Houston to have refused a Lin request to complete the first offer.
