The Rox traded Lowry to the Raptors, Dragic went to the Suns. With our interest in Felton and Kidd, it's lining up that we lose Lin to the Rockets.
Do you really think Dolan cares about luxury tax penalties when Lin generates so much money off the court?
Lin SHOULD be a Knick, if he isnt then there is something wrong with management.

All I know is the Rox don't have a PG and we'll have too many with Kidd, Felton, Douglas and Lin.
If we end this offseason with Lin, Novak & JR Smith resigned along with Jason Kidd & Marcus Camby (or someone like Kenyon Martin), I'll count it a pretty big success considering what we had to work with to get all those pieces in place.
And another underrated quality about Kidd is that he is not a major mismatch when defending taller players because of his quick hands, strength and IQ. He gave Durant tough times and in the 2011 Finals he gave LeBron some trouble also.
No way they won't sign Lin. That luxary cap number will be a drop in the bucket to how much the Knicks will make in marketing Lin. Lin uniforms. Lin MSG show, Chinese-American night, Nerd night, national broadcast games. They will make that money back tenfold just this year with a full year of Linsanity.
