Colan will match. Fields is now a potential bad signing long forgotten. Can't say I'm too upset, and the + $6M that came from matching him would've had the same effect and bumped Dolan's new CBA cap penalty payment to $45M anyway.
Glenny G should've gotten in earlier really, but this is no skin off the nose of our FO, and certainly not a huge impact on Dolan's man-purse in the NY market. Especially considering we'll be winning more games this year.
Luis Scola being amnestied is absolutely ****ing ludicrous. He is a rare breed of old school/Euro savvy PF, and he is a hard nut on top of that. Surely there were bidders for his services. Desperate GMs do desperate things, and this reeks of pressure from the owners, as a poorly thought out plan and idiotic moves culminate in this offseason's worst decision.
Dwight Howard may have intervened ~ just a guess. I know he's a God botherer just like Lin. Maybe they've been in cahoots? Seems unlikely.
Regardless of the bump in the offer sheet, the Knicks will match. The Rockets are a festering mess, who, after sucking the life out of us in the T Mac trade, have done nothing but bugger their franchise in the pooper. Dragic, Lowry, and now a Dwight Howard campaign with Bynum as a plan B?
James Dolan is going to take the utmost pleasure in crushing their Linsane offer, and the Rockets will rue the day they decided to amnesty Scola and lose 2 top notch point guards for d!ck.
Fvck Houston! I can't wait to tear them apart on their floor next year. It will be a game and a year for the Rockets to forget.
