    Definitely not but it's all about supply and demand. Kardasians say hi.

    Besides, why are we even concerned about how much money Lin DOESN't DESERVE? From this fan's perspective, I want the best team on the floor and frankly, bringing Felton back as a starter isn't exactly what constitutes a great off-season move.

    Melo & Chris Paul walked through media room here in Vegas & Melo said, referring to CP3, "You'll see him in NY in a couple years."(smiling).

    I'm Asian and I don't see why some guys really want Lin back. He wants big money for just 25 games of good basketball? Come on. He's gonna make more money than LeBron made in his first 3 year in the NBA. You have got to be ****tin me! Hahaha. I say let him walk. Felton just has to get back into shape and do that P&R with Stat and we're all good. If Felton fails, just let Kidd do it. You can already see that Dolan is building the team only to contend for only 3 years.

    I dont see why many Knicks fans are so riled up about how much Lin is getting.

    It doesnt matter if he is 1 mil/year or 15 mil/year, it has ZERO affect on our cap. The only difference is in Dolan's bank account. With this said, good for Lin and Novak that they will take Dolan to the laundry!

    Keep in mind, this (and Novak) is A FREE SIGNING! It doesnt cost anything cap wise.

    f*ck yeah coocoo! the money that Knicks will be forced to pay in luxury tax hell can be made up in spades through Linsanity marketing. Dolan would be an idiot not to make it happen. now that Knicks have Felton, either Lin shines and the Knicks are a better team, or he doesn't, and Knicks still have 3 quality PG's to run the show. LIN LIN situation!!

    I agree, except there is one small problem. 40 million isn't chump change, the MSG/Tiime Warner deal has already gone through, and season ticket prices for 12-13 have already been set and sold. Now is the right time for Dolan to sell on Lin, swindle the fans, and line his own pockets. If anyone would do this, it would be Dolan.

    but luxury tax penalties are aparently so absured that any owner would be scared of it....yet that view has holes because why would Prokorov or Dolan who are billlionaires really care about 50 mil or 100 mil a year?

    Lin makes more money in marketing than Dolan will lose from paying luxury tax penalities.

    Default Will Lin be resigned to be traded?

    This idea has come up with many reporters on twitter.

    What is the use of just letting an asset like Jeremy Lin walk?

    Even the rockets got something for Lowry, even though it was peanuts, atleast they got peanuts.

    For us to just lose a legit PG that has all the hype to be perfect trade bait is more baffling than anything.

    Why not just resign Lin...pay him 5 mil and then use him in a trade with Amare?

    We know Amare's contract is cancer, yet telling teams they have to take Amare with Lin...similar to the Magic's demands with Howard having to be pacakged with Turkoglu...would make sense for the Knicks to get out of cap hell.

    See how Lin works out with the team and if he doesn't fit or if someone's role isn't working out...we trade them in January when we are allowed to trade newly signed free agents.

    Thoughts?

    IF we match.. he can't be traded until a certain amount of time passes to my knowledge. And theres no guarantee a package of Lin and Amare is enough to get rid of Amare.. Also lmao at this picture

    Default Any reason to sign two PGs in the offseason unless Lin is gone?

    Can anyone think of any reason why the Knicks would sign Kidd and Felton if they intend on signing Lin? I can't think of any reason why they would. I hate the move, but I think it's certain that the Knicks are bringing back Lin next year.

    Aside from the skills he brings to the table, I can't believe the Knicks didn't think it'd be worth is financial. The kid had the #2 selling jersey last year and in terms of money he brings to a team he's probably top 5 or top 10 at least. I do not get this decision at all.

    Edit:
    The title of the thread should be "Any reason to add THREE PGs in the offseason unless Lin is gone?"

    I forgot we also added Prigioni.

    Maybe they just don't like how he fits in our new style

    If FelTON gets back in top shape I'd be fine but come on 25 million after 25 starts, would you do it

    Lin's situation is unique, which allowed Lin and Novak's contracts not counted against the cap. Even if Dolan wants to pay more in luxury tax by acquiring more star players, he can't. We dont have the cap space nor the other players' birds right.

    Every player we acquire, we have to make a trade in equal or less value in cap...except vet min player or by using exceptions. Those can be made without trades.
