    JR Smith & Novak plan to re-sign with the NYK, which should all but guarantee that they don't match Toronto's offer for Fields (was probably very unlikely already).

    Here's a link to the story on ESPN: http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/stor...ew-york-knicks


    I hope BC is at least inquiring about making the signing a S&T deal... a 2nd round pick for Fields would also leave NYK with a $6.2M TPE, I believe... I wonder if that would be sufficient incentive for NYK to help Toronto out (especially since we didn't sign Nash as a result of the offer to Fields)?

    Is there a benefit for us doing a sign and trade for fields vs signing him to the offer sheet other than the Knicks not matching? I'm clear on the fact that they get a TPE out of it, just unsure if doing a S&T gives us more options to acquire players

    It certainly makes a lot of sense.
    I dont get it.

    It would have to be on the same terms as the Raps offer wouldn't it? I can see that Fields bird rights get transferred in the s&t ( unsure of the rule here). And the big kicker is providing the Knicks with the TPE...which they can use to get better (helping the enemy). All to say why do it when all indications are we get him anyway as it stands.

    Raps could sign Fields in a S&T using TPE after all other business is done.

    That would allow the Raptors to use the cap space they currently have in another trade whereby they could take back up to $6.75M ($11M minus difference in Lowry/Forbes contract). They would also have MLE at disposal and would not have to renounce any players.

    This is off the top of my head - if anything is wrong, let me know!

    That makes alot of sense. Hope we can get NYK on board. Thanks for clarifying Matt.

    Thanks. You sure u dont have a pipeline to Coon? CalRaps too. Knicks are probably too pissed at BC to assist I think.

    I just got a reply from Larry Coon via Twitter, that said a S&T for Fields is still possible, as long as all 3 parties agree to it. NYK would get a TPE worth 50% of the value of the first year of Fields' new contract. If he was signed for $6.3M for the first year, NYK would get a $3.15M TPE, in addition to whatever other assets Toronto traded to them.

    I hope BC pushes for a S&T, offering a 2013 2nd round pick as a 'thank you'.

    NYK
    - get a free 2nd round pick
    - get a $3.15M TPE to potentially acquire another player even after they are over the cap and finished using their exceptions

    TOR
    - if the Lowry & Fields trades are done as the first two transactions, they would reach the salary cap via trades (as opposed to via free agent signings), allowing them to maintain their full MLE, as well as the $7.6M TPE they got for Barbosa
    - wouldn't have to renounce Bayless or Gray (only players that really matter to Toronto, since Weems can't be used in S&T)
