Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Why is Dragic resigning with Phoenix after they shipped him out a few yrs back for a point guard? smh


and Lowry may be the odd man out if Knicks don't match Houston's offer for Lin

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I really don't understand Houston. Lowry is clearly a fantastic PG, I don't see why they're trying to wheel and deal to get others. Lin isn't half the player Lowry is. It's kind of pissing me off, because I really like Lowry. Either commit to him or deal him.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

They have no choice but to keep him now as Lin is staying in NY. I can only assume they are trying to replace him as he's been a bit of a whiner the last few months (apparently).

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Supposedly everyone associated with Houston dislikes him or like David Aldridge said, "coaches & players desperately wanted Dragic back next season"..But if 4 yrs $34 mil is too steep for Dragic in their eyes, what are they thinking with Lin & Lowry?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

It's been reported...idk. No one has come out and formally said it of course so we find out about these things the same way we do every other time. You just chose to believe it or not.

Houston's multiyear offer to Jeremy Lin includes back-loaded money designed to hit the Knicks hard on the luxury tax, sources close to Lin said.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Matching a contract requires the team to follow the identical pay structure as well? Can't they just restructure the deal after a year anyway?

Of course that's a load of shit. Bottom picks in the draft(that the Suns will probably sell anyways) won't get them shit(likely), but that's beside the point. The guy deserves a ring and ultimately made the best choice(not saying that because it's the Lakers, saying that because the Knicks/Raptors have literally no chance at a ring).

No, I don't think so. I remember the Bulls did the same when they signed Redick to an offer sheet - backloaded it. Now, JJ is making like $7 Million.
