    Re: J kidd to the Knicks

    I wonder if they're assuming that Lin is gone then.

    Re: J kidd to the Knicks

    I get signing Kidd but a 3 year deal? He's already 39 and has played 18 seasons in the league. But 3 million a year is pretty cheap to get a guy like that on your roster. Even if he's not the Kidd of old, he's still a valuable part of a team. I would think the thought of being mentored by Kidd would make Linn want to come back

    Re: J kidd to the Knicks

    My thoughts echo clones85's. 3 years for Kidd?? Dude is aging and quickly. He's not Steve Nash who clearly has a lot left in the tank. But, if you're going to sign Kidd $3 million is a pretty good bargain.

    If the Rockets back-loaded deal is indeed on the table it would be hard for the Knicks to match it with the albatross contracts of Amare, Chandler, and Melo already on the books.

    Re: J kidd to the Knicks

    With kyle lowry going to the raptors, and jason kidd going to the knicks, id put money on jeremy lin going to the rockets. But who knows? Rumor has it they just got some kid whose 6'8 265 with MAD handles.

    Re: J kidd to the Knicks

    I wouldn't go after Linn if I was any team. Sure he looked great for 15 games but I need to more than that before I throw out serious cash trying to get him.

    How does the payout work if a player retires before their contract is up? Could this just be a sneaky way to pay Kidd more and work around the salary cap?

    I think a large reason why Houston wants him has nothing to do with his on the court talent.

    B/c Houston had the #1 pick and they wanted to assure that Ming would go #1?

    It's more fun to live in the land of "David Stern is an evil manipulator" conspiracy theories.

    I would pass on Lin and have Royce play point forward.
