Next year, Knicks are going to be at 59 mil with 7 players under contract, which is 1 mil over salary cap. It would be reasonable to say if he continues playing at this level or at least 80% of his current production, then he'll be signed to a multiyear (8-10 mil / year), which means in 2/3 years, the Knicks will be 11 mil over salary cap with 4 players (luxury tax = 16.5 mil for just 4 players).

You think the Knicks are willing to sign this kid back?

Knicks better amnesty Carmelo first before even thinking of letting Lin go.

it was used on chauncey.

not sure if anybody would touch a max contract on one of the most selfish "superstars" in the NBA (melo).

MJ would.


And they can't let Lin walk. It's like Tebow in Denver. The fans would fuking revolt on that franchise like no tomorrow. They couldn't withstand a PR rape job like that so they'll make him happy.

I think the most any other teams could offer LIN is the MLE which the Knicks can match next season.

The front office would be crazy not to give Lin a multi year contract. I'd say at this point they would sooner give up either Melo or Amar'e before giving up Lin
