Let him walk
Resign him and keep him long term
Resign him and trade him January 2013 with Amare
Everybody just calm down and let this thing play out.....The knicks can do whatever they want as far as trades go and still match Lin's offer. The decision is entirely up to them because of the early bird decision.
what i don't get is why fight for and win early bird rights if your going to let the guy potentially walk?

The Knicks have acquired Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas from Portland for Jared Jeffries and Dan Gadzuric, sources tell the Daily News
Im sad but you know what since this is going to happen I can only wish CP3 is at the end of this dark....dark tunnel. Better be or the NYK only have Shump and Melo? to look forward to in a few years then hopefully someone new would.... o what am i kidding Ill wait till dolan dies/sells then maybe we can be a good franchise. At least the Nets are just as bad NYC bbal is a bad one...

Another source insists #Knicks won't match Lin's offer sheet.

1m Tommy Dee @TommyDeeTKB
can confirm @FisolaNYDN report of felton deal... he will get 3 years 10 million w Kurt thomas. Seems clear now that Lin is a goner..#Knicks
Tommy Dee @TommyDeeTKB
but if they are paying Felton 3+ per with Kidd and Prigioni... LIn is a goner. #knicks
Felton's PER is a good six points lower than that of Lin........ Kidd's PER last season was comparable to Felton..........
If the Knicks use Felton as a "budget alternative" to Lin and not match the offer, this could explain why this team has been a perennial doormat under James Dolan.
