When the reported offer-sheet the Houston Rockets agreed to with Jeremy Lin was released as four-years, $28.8 million, there were indications that the Knicks planned to match any offer “up to one-billion dollars.” Now, after we’ve learned that Jeremy Lin’s actually deal pays him $25.1, guaranteed, in a three-year deal, we have seen the Knicks… More
The New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers have just come to terms on a sign-and-trade that will send Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas to New York for Jared Jeffries and Dan Gadzuric. This comes on the heels of several reports saying the Knicks were nearing a deal with Raymond Felton.
LINSANITY!!! As reported by multiple sources, it appears Raymond Felton is close to joining the Knicks. The Knicks’ only remaining trade chip is Dan Gadzuric’s non-guaranteed deal, which would allow them to send out his $1,352,181 contract and receive up to $2,128,271.

Pablo Prigioni, a 35-year-old Argentianean point guard who has been playing in Spain, has decided to accept the New York Knicks’ offer and come to the United States, according to Marc Berman. He’s set to become the oldest rookie in the NBA. Ever, I believe.
