The Rockets changed their “poison pill” offer to Jeremy Lin to make it more difficult for the Knicks to match.  Now the contract calls for Lin to make nearly $15mm in year three of his contract.  If the Knicks match, they will have four players making a combined $77mm in the 2014-2015 season.  Can the Knicks afford that?

      I’m not sure that the Knicks should match. Year three payment would be $30mm, including luxury tax. Perhaps they should match, then trade either Lin or Stoudemire after year two.

        yea im on the same boat about trading someone after year 2. also theres a theory that the knicks are getting back at houston for offering the poison pill contract by signing the Felton for cheap, thus leaving houston with no more decent guards to pick up haha
