    Makes me wonder if the raptors have any other free agents in mind?
    Or trades, since they'd be able to take back nearly $7M more than they send out. Of the free agents still out there, I could see BC having interest to varying degree in Mayo and Courtney Lee, just off the top of my head. I would bet that BC has some 'next moves' mapped out, for both a Fields signing and a NYK matching.

    The next couple days could be fun for us Raptors fans!

    Seems even less likely that the Knicks will match now.

    The third year of that Lin deal is for $15 million. They won't be able to afford Fields at $9 million that same year.

    Ya I posted that earlier, I really don't think they care about the luxury tax though. If they still want him they'll keep him. Jersey sales alone will pay for the taxes

    Although the NYK don't really care about money, as they are so profitable. Also, as far as luxury tax is concerned, I believe it's based on team payroll (ie: per salary cap), so the total salary for both Lin and Fields is averaged out and therefore year 3 won't be as much of a problem for them.

    That being said I honestly don't think knicks really have any intent on keeping him but that's just my opinion.

    Not the case. It is averaged out for the team offering the poison pill, but if the rights holding team matches the cap hit is exactly the salary structure so in year 3 they get screwed. One of the benefits of offering a poison pill.

    @AlexKennedyNBA: The Knicks are considering signing UFA Raymond Felton and letting RFA Jeremy Lin walk to the Rockets, a source close to situation confirms.

    What does this mean for fields?

    The Knicks are not matching the offer sheet to Landry Fields, his agent said.

    Knicks fans, no worries. Knicks will NOT match offer sheet for Landry Fields. Fields will become a member of the Raptors......for $20 mil.
    It's actually 18.7 mil-_-

    Awesome! Starting SF for the Raps!

    JGWS, if people still believe in alabi. Then they should say nothing bad about fields.

    If anything, our defense is gonna be so much better this season, what with Fields, JoVal and Lowry entering the mix. I'm pretty stoked.

    Default Welcome Landry Fields!







    If anything he'll be a great personality in the locker room.

    We'll see how this signing pans out, he really didn't mesh with Melo well (like the entire Knicks team) so there's promise that in a more team oriented ofence he will look much better. But of course it's all speculation now, we'll have to wait until the season to see how our new additions look together

    I love this signing, and I think his contract is actually a great value. He's the best rebounder in the whole goddamn league from the two guard position, and well above average for a SF. Add that to a solid 3-pt stroke (yes, I think last season was an aberration), good help defense, and great instincts off the ball and you've got literally the perfect player to make up for Bargs' weaknesses.

    I like him coming to the raps, he was my favorite Knick over the last 2 seasons from the games I watched. His contract is a bit high but I think he can play to the contract. If not we will all have something to bitch about and it will be worth someone elses money just for that.

    Somewhere Bargnani is doing a fist pump.
