Have we seen the last of both Jeremy Lin & Landry Fields in Knicks unis?
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Landry Fields, a restricted FA, has signed an offer sheet that, even if you love the Stanford product, is probably foolish for the Knickerbockers to match, especially considering the make up of the roster, their existing needs, plus the money already committed to their own “Big 3”.
Meanwhile, ESPN is reporting that Jeremy Lin is scheduled to meet with the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. If Lin were to sign an offer from Houston, it would put the NYK in an awfully tough spot. Do they match it & commit themselves to terms that may take them beyond the realm of good basketball business? Maybe not. Houston has already shown they are not shy in making expensive, difficult to match offers to other club’s restricted FA’s(see Omer Asik & the Bulls). Would they really give Lin a 5 year/$40+ million deal based off a half season of great play?
Knicks Knation won’t sleep very well until they get an answer.
