Ill say though, the only thing that scares me about lin/kidd is if Lin goes down for a significant period of time. I really dont like kidd/douglas all that much more then I liked Bibby/Douglas....I hope we get some depth and I really hope Lin stays healthy
He said it would be wierd for him to wear a Lakers jersey after playing them so much in the playoffs as rivals, i guess his word doesn't mean anything.
-Positives are numerous for us
We can now not worry about matching an offer for Lin, even if it is a poison pill, we need him and we will worry about year 3 and 4 when that time comes. Resign Lin to whatever.
We don't have to resign Landry Fields who I believed was a bad fit on this team, especially with Shumpert and Smith taking all his minutes because Landry fails to hit an open shot.
We can address the PG issues by spending less money. Sign Kidd or Prigioni as a backup and we can still get solid production.
We keep Iman Shumpert, who we all believe is going to be an all around stud in the NBA for years to come.
The Knicks were probably torn between deciding to trade him, now they don't have to worry.
Let's focus on the future and hope Lin can orchestrate the offense

Lol now toronto has to swallow that poison pill.
Theres sources that say David Stern may veto this sign and trade.
This is good news. I would love to have Kidd as a solid backup PG. Giving up 22 year old Shump for 38 year old Nash was like giving your arm 3x the strength but your arms will fall off in a few months. Good if you only care about short-term, but overall bad in the long-term. You would be trading a youthful defender for an aged offender
