    Grunwald could have easily told Felton to spread that rumour, the rockets were also considering going hard for Felton if they did not get Lin. So we throw them off the scent of Felton and get him via S&T (Gadzuric), then the rockets are helpless as we match Lin's offer. Seem's a stretch but perfectly doable and Grunwald has come up trumps so far.

    Ball movement was pretty stagnant for most of last year but with Kidd, Felton & Lin all on the roster (with Kidd & Felton able to play the 2) we will have outstanding ball movement for our big 3 at all times. Grunwald could be looking ahead and seeing Shump may notbe able to retain his form by the playoff's and keeping us extra insured.

    Rockets are then stuck with TD as their pg hahaha, they threw us a curve ball with the backloading contract so whose to say we aren't doing the same to them?
    It would be genius and I hope you're right...

    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.

    25 million for a guy with 25 starts, basketball wise its not smart there is a reason guys get rookie contracts they gotta earn their money, not saying Lin should get a decent deal but really

    Kurt Thomas? The guy who called the Knicks a retirement home won't like that.

    Only seeing Chris Paul as the end of the tunnel makes this worth it but this is still BS

    I think CP3/Melo at the Olympics devised a plan to make him a knick.... (i have a funny feeling) and told the knick mangement CP3 will be a knick no matter what so just telling them "get ready"

    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.
