    Default Calling LJ & OT!





    CALLING THE CAP GURUS

    I am looking for your expertise on the following scenarios regarding Jeremy Lin's upcoming contractual situation.

    Is the following correct?

    - Linsatiable agrees to a qualifying offer next year. The following year, he will become a FA able to sign with any team @ X salary over X years.

    - Grunwald offers him the average salary of $5M next season, with annual increments of 7.5% over 5 years throughout the prime of his career. PREFERABLE!

    - Head Office offer him the MLE for 1 season then he becomes a full Bird rights player and will thus be applicable for max money.

    - We can offer the MLE for 2 or 3 seasons and Lin subsequently becomes a Bird Rights contract in this scenario also.

    - Grunwald puts the biannual deal on the table next season @ for $1.9M again making Lin a full Bird Rights player.

    - Question 1: What if another team were to offer Lin a lucrative deal in the off-season prior to our re-signing of Lin.

    - Question 2: Are players able to restructure contracts?

    1.) He will be a restricted free agent this offseason. We will be able to match any offer, regardless of our cap situation.

    2.) Only contracts signed under the new CBA are permitted to be restructured. Melo and Amare's contracts cannot be restructured. Chandler's can though.

    1. Brilliant

    2. Gay - and presumably, even if either were miraculously willing, there is no flexibility, loophole or otherwise in this regard?

    Thanks very much, LJ.

    A round of applause for our resident capologist.

    Chandler's contract is untouchable though!

    Boy he derserves his $14 million!

    We simply should have cut Billups and used the amnesty on Stoudemire or Anthony.

    Would have had enough money to sign Chandler AND about $20 million in extra cap space next offseason, could have used that money on Fields, Lin and 1 or 2 solid free agents for the SF and SG position.

    Whats the story with Fields contract ?
    again do the Knicks have the ability to match any offer ?
    was picking up TD's last year option a mistake in regards to any cap effects ?

    Fields will be out of contract next season as far as I know, I don't know whether we can match any offer on second round picks....

    I hope so. He's a keeper, either at the SG or even better imo at the SF position with Shumpert playing SG.

    My understanding is Landry qualifies to become an RFA after this season. All what we have to do is to submit a qualifying offer by a certain date (heard of 06.30). If he becomes an RFA we're able to match any offer regardless of our payroll situation. However, if we decide not to do so, he'll be a UFA which makes him free to sign with any NBA team.

    So Lin's contract and Fields contract have no effect on eachother ?

    The Knicks need to offer Jephon Linbury a contract extension right now.
    If they wait until the end of the season, there will be a bidding war, and then he will end up somewhere else.

    Did you read what other people wrote? He's not going anywhere, because we can match any offer. Dolan knows this kiddo is a cash cow, so even if someone offers $10M/year, we're going to match it.

    i think the point he was making is to lock him up BEFORE someone offers 10 mil...

    I agree, lock him up now. I've seen enough to give him a contract. The kid needs job security and to feel like he's welcome here. No better way to show that then to show him the $$$. Also he'll definitely come cheaper now then at the end of the season. If he keeps this up he's going to require a MAX contract and we don't want to have to pay that.

    D'oh-lan ain't worried about paying $$, he'll just charge more for the handicap seats...
    he paid out $12M for Anushka just to get the f*ck out, he'll pay Spike Lin $10M just to
    stay the f*ck in! not only is Lin-da worth his weight in gold, but he brings the Asian
    community in, to fill the seats and sell out the Gardlin, and THAT my friends, is worth
    every penny to a corporate gonad like D'oh-lan.
