Precise value of offer TBD but Knicks will have three days to match once Fields signs July 11. Deal likely to have Year 3 spike a la Asik

Fields was 1 of Knicks few trade chips for Nash RT @ESPNSteinLine: Raptors and Knicks' RFA Landry Fields have agreed to 3-year
...Toronto Raptors are offering Fields a 3 year deal with a spike in the 3rd year similar to asik who will make 15 mil in year 3 and 4 of his contract...these are called poison pill contracts and it is the only way teams can snatch players away from the team that has them restricted.
The problem with this is not really losing Fields, but that the Raptors would try to get him and ruin our chance and doing a sign and trade for Nash. We can't trade Fields to the Suns for Nash if the Raptors get Fields.
The Raptors are trying to ruin our chances at Nash.
UPDATE: 3 years for 20 million for Fields offered by Raptors
