I think they want to start all over. To be honest, Lowry or Dragic aren't really players you want to build around on. Lowry might look like an injury risk and the Rockets probably has had it with injuries (See TMac & Yao). And Dragic is a good PG but I am not even sure he is starting caliber yet. There are easily 10 PGs (likely more) in the league that I'd take over him. Those two might have one of those cases of good players on crappy team syndrome too, it makes them look much better than they actually are.

The only PGs worth building around are CP3, DWIll, Westbrook, Rose, Irving, Rondo and maybe Parker. I'd easily take Lawson, Curry, Jennings, Ellis, Rubio, Conley, Calderon, Holiday, Evans, Wall and Lin over Dragic or Lowry and those are just from the top of my head.

Does Lin make that list of 10 PGs?

Editted it and yes I'd take Lin over Dragic and Lowry. Not top 10 and not to build my team around but overall, yes, I might take Lin if I were a GM, get then Asianz market money.

Jeremy Lin has verbally agreed to sign a four-year offer sheet with the Houston Rockets on July 11, according to a source close to the talks.
The four-year deal would be worth an estimated $30-plus million.
A report in The New York Post on Wednesday, citing a league source, said the Rockets were planning to offer Lin a backloaded deal worth roughly $30 million. According to the same source, the deal would pay Lin $5 million in the first season, $5.2 million in the second, and then would increase to as much as $10 million per year in the third and fourth seasons.
"Jeremy Lin's an excellent player," Rockets general manager Daryl Morey told The Post. "We got to know him firsthand when he was with the Rockets early this season. We think he'd make a fantastic addition to our team."
The Knicks can offer Lin a four-year deal worth $24.5 million. In 35 games with the Knicks last season, Lin averaged 14.6 points and 6.2 assists per game.

I think you are mistaken. Dolan is stupid, make no mistake but Stevie Wonder can see what would happen to the Knicks fanbase if they let Lin go and he excels somewhere else (while they stink). Also, Knicks can match any offer so he won't really be getting less money. And the Knicks are the team that essentially made him, he seems to be grateful for that and lastly, the NYC market for an asian sports star is off the charts.

Jeremy Lin today accepted the Rockets’ backloaded, four-year, $28.9 million offer sheet, and it’s not as poisonous as it could have been. The final year has a team option.
The Knicks, ignited by having Jason Kidd agreeing to join their roster and become Lin’s mentor, are expected to match. They officially will be presented the offer sheet July 11 and will have three days. It could take them three minutes.

Man, I'm really hoping that Nash works out. I have faith as he has managed to make a shit platter look like world beaters basically his whole career. About the only guy that looked as good or better w/o Stevie is Dirk.

I think the Lakers will have a legit shot at the chip IF they can keep their head straight and fucking Brown can figure out the concept of a rotation.

So how does that work exactly? If the Knicks match he is stuck there even if he does want to go to Houston?

I guess kind of like Eric Gordons situation, he wants to take the Suns offer but it looks like of NOH matches he is stuck there. He has stated his resentment with NOH and drafting another SG like him, so why would NOH match the offer and keep him? To be able to trade him for someone later on?


On another news, I didn't even know Bynum is getting another knee surgery. Dude needs to get traded for Howard like yesterday. He's been having knee surgery every year now?

Actually, the more I think about it, Steve Nash flat out balled last year. He is a huge upgrade and will make that offence flow like butter.

Howard will be traded along with J-Rich, and they can pick up a few mid-level guys for the bench (Grant Hill). The future looks bright for the Lakeshow.

Didn't Nash average a double double last year? I think he had the most assists in the league and excellent percentages
post #8484 of 27204
The Rockets actually offered Lin less than what they offered Omer Asik (3 years 25 million)

Ya, there is no way they let him walk for free. That would essentially be the equivalent of trading Chris Paul for Aminu and the Rivers kid. 

 

Worst case scenario is they sign him and then trade him for some other assets.

Over 10 assists per game while playing 32 mpg or something. Crazy efficient.

I know almost every year since he left Dallas someone has predicted Nash would finally decline. While it hasn't happened yet, the possibility of him being worse or getting injured is still present. I really hope he plays well, but I wouldn't be shocked if something bad happened either.

Who do the lakers even have for backup point? Steve Blake?
post #8490 of 27204
what a crazy off season this has been.

Lakers look like contenders
Nets all of a sudden have the best backcourt
Houston decided to get rid of 2 solid point guards and replace with mini-yao
Mavs shit themselves (where's JJ when you need him?)
Knicks improved, i think...

Funnest fact of the week: Joe Johnson is owned 90 mill over 3 years snork[1].gif
