It does not work like that the only way he can get that type of many is if it's back loaded, also the Knicks can't give him that type of contract they can only match what other teams give him.Knicks should offer Lin the same deal but have it front loaded. I assume Lin would prefer get his money now instead of waiting 2 years for it.
You do realize that the luxury tax under the new CBA is going to be almost 5 times the amount over the ceiling threshold in later years?James Dolan laughs at luxury tax.
The only people getting **** are the fans that buy tickets.
Thats the repeater rate and the Knicks don't have to worry about that because they were not over the Luxury tax last year, they only have to worry about that in 2016 when most of their salaries will be off the books.You do realize that the luxury tax under the new CBA is going to be almost 5 times the amount over the ceiling threshold in later years?
Imagine being $20 million over the luxury tax and then having to fork over almost $100 million to David Stern and his cronies every year. Even Dolan will feel it in his ass if he has to do that.
while i'm sure that doesn't hurt, it probably has more to do with lowry wanting out and not coming to terms with dragic. lin makes a lot of basketball sense to be the next option in free agency.I wonder if the Rockets are thinking about all of Yao's homeboys when they make this move. I don't know how that impacts them financially, but they must have a great many fans in the People's Republic.
