    Lin to Rockets?
    ‏@AlexKennedyNBA
    The Knicks are considering signing UFA Raymond Felton and letting RFA Jeremy Lin walk to the Rockets, a source close to situation confirms.

    Has Kennedy ever broken any stories? I don't recall any.

    There's nothing NOWHERE about this DH trade. I did hear them mention it on NBATV a while ago so we'll see.

    I'm just 6'4" and 285, but Howard can elbow me 82 times, heck 365 times, for $2.5 million.

    Great move on a marketing standpoint. Maybe not so much basketball-wise.

    They better hope they land Lin, he might be their best player with that terrible roster. They went all in on Dwight or Bynum and it don't look good for either. They'll tank next year and have their and Toronto's lotto pick. Maybe they get lucky like we did

    Sign and trade lol. You need to sign the man before you can trade him.

    Not sure why they desperately wanted Lin so much. Especially giving him 14 million in the 3rd year of the deal.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    They aren't. It's a 3 year 25 mil deal ... if the Knicks match, the cap hits are 5-5-15. For the Rockets, it would be 8.3 each year.

    Don't ask me why it's structured like that, but Morey's been pounding that loophole with Asik and now Lin.

    This is the kind of low-class stuff that I hate. I'm sure every GM in the league knows about it, but nobody else is using it because it is a cheap trick.

    My distaste for the Rockets organization is growing exponentially.

    I disagree ... poison pill deals are nothing new. The NFL outlawed them, the NBA should do the same. But if they're in play, then a GM is within his rights to do anything he can to help his team sign a player ... it's the league's fault that the loophole is open.

    I say this as a Hornets and Knicks fan too, so I have every reason in the world to hate Houston for it.

    I have a bigger problem with things like Cuban's been able to pull, ie leaning on the NBA to nix Hornets deals and whatever junk he and Brand's people pulled to poison the waters enough to essentially steal - literally - a strong player.

    good for Lin but i cant wait for the Rockets to suck it up this year

    Well played, Knicks. well played

    According to league rules, the three-day clock for a team to match an offer on a restricted free agent does not begin until the team’s general manager physically receives the offer sheet. Well, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen, the Knicks are literally avoiding the Rockets so the clock won’t start.

    Here’s Feigen’s report, via Twitter:

    “Rockets so far unable to hand deliver Lin offer sheet. Knicks refused to accept at team hotel. Glen Grunwald not at practice yest, gm today. Rockets had a courier knocking on doors at hotel, call room. Could not get someone to accept offer sheet yesterday. Rockets FedExed offer sheet to Knicks offices in NY, but league said GM Glen Grunwald must receive it himself. Clock to match at standstill. All of this is high comedy, but does leave no doubt that Knicks will take every bit of three days to match, once offer sheet is in hand”
    While all of this is undoubtedly hilarious, as the Knicks childishly play “catch me if you can” with Houston, we’re not sure why they’re even doing this. Every report indicates they’ll match the Rockets’ offer, so there’s really not much to discuss in the front office – and news of the Rockets’ offer sheet has been public for over a week now, so they’ve had plenty of time to discuss further options. In any case, we hope the Knicks’ GM Glen Grunwald skips town and ends up in a country without an extradition treaty.






    this is pretty good lol
