    Default Linsanity Rule could ease all our off season concerns!

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    WOW I hated the Union during the lockout, but am sure loving them now


    Basically they are filling a claim that will allow teams to sign players in Lin's situation while preserving their MLE!


    This means Lin could get signed, a player like a Felton is added for half the MLE and Novak is re-signed for the remainder....however we use it will no doubt be debated until it is done, but the point is that this is a huge victory for The Knicks if it goes through

    And lets be real....why would Stern and Silver not want this to workout?

    We'll see

    Can you imagine... Nash running the show. Melo is our go to guy. Amare steps it up with Nash getting him the ball where he likes it. Chandler also gets some chemistry going there. We have the DPoY and one of the best, young, in your face defenders in Shumpert. On top of all that you could have people like J.R Smith, Novak and Lin coming off the bench? GTFO. That has to be a championship.

    I don't think the Knicks would let the cash cow Lin walk, even though they know Nash would benefit the team more. But if they could get both... !

    i would not let LIN walk based on his potential.....Maybe we can have a star for years to coming instead of always chasing everyone else....

    any sick SG we can get at 5 million ?

    ^^^^ YES!

    Yes to Mayo.

    Granted, he would have been perfect playing for D'antoni, but look, like we all said during MDA -- a coach worth his salt needs to maximize the talent he has.

    If we could get Nash in this scenario, you still absolutely do it, because championship windows are hard to come by, and we'd have a legit 2-3 yr window if we signed both Nash and Lin and Novak and JR.

    Lin could definitely play some SG too as well as backing up Nash at point.

    Nash-Lin
    Shumpert-Lin-JR
    Melo-JR-Novak
    Amare-Novak-Jeffries
    Chandler-Jeffries-Jorts

    If we stay healthy, and assume Nash makes Amare even 75% of what he once was, I think we'd be right up there with OKC and MIA for the next 3years, and our eventual rebuild would be really nice with Lin/Shump/Melo as our ongoing core, + whatever picks we accumulate along the way.

    Deshawn Stevenson comes to mind. A gritty and strong defensive player with good shooting ability. Plus he comes on the cheap. Got the bi-annual exception from the Nets this season. Can't see him demanding more than 3 mil.

    I would rather see us get Andre Miller if this rule passes through. We can't go into the season with Mike Bibby and Toney Douglas as our backup Point Guards.

    Give me Nash. Did you guys see him almost take that horrible Suns team to the playoffs. He can teach Melo and Amare basketball.

    Two things about Felton.

    1. He thinks he's a better shooter than he is.
    2. He always wants more money than he's worth.

    Doubt if he's interested in the Knicks for the vets min.

    Felton would make for a great backup PG

    His market value is low coming off a season where he shot the ball bad and had beef with his coach all year.

    He will get no better than a 3 million dollar deal next year...the reason we may not get him is that he'll want to start and we can't promise him that.
