    Default Lin & Novak granted their Bird Rights by arbitrator!

    The arbitrator, Kenneth Dam, issued his ruling Friday, siding with the National Basketball Players Association, which challenged the N.B.A.’s interpretation of the rules under the collective bargaining agreement. Dam handed the union a complete victory in the ruling.
    The ruling means that both Lin and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] will be able to re-sign with the team without respect to the salary cap, for a starting salary around $5 million each

    NBA is expected to appeal the ruling.

    This is HUUUUUGE if the ruling holds. Knicks can now re-sign both those guys & use their MLE on another free agent. Anyone think Steve Nash would even sign for a MLE? If not, I wouldn't mind going after Ray Allen. We really do need another reliable shooter on this team besides Novak.
