Re: 2013 NBA Offseason News
NY Times reporting
that the Knicks will not be matching Houston's offer to Lin. Knicks haven't confirmed. Dolan is in Las Vegas watching the Summer League with the head coach.
Time will tell if this is a bad move, but I think Dolan's isn't making a business decision, to him it's personal. That's a bad way to run a team, and he's been a horrible owner.
The Knicks plan to cut ties with Jeremy Lin on Tuesday night, according to a person briefed on the decision, ending a brief, spectacular and now bittersweet love affair between the 23-year-old point guard and his adoring fan base. Lin will play next season for the Houston Rockets, who signed him to a three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet that the Knicks have elected not to match.
The Knicks are not expected to announce their decision until this evening, and there is still a chance — albeit incredibly small — that it could be reversed. But as of 4 p.m. the decision had been made and was considered final by those with knowledge of the deliberations. Indeed, the deliberations were said to be over.
