    Just mentioned by Marc Stein via Twitter:

    Just going up online and via SportsCenter: Raptors and Knicks' RFA Landry Fields have agreed to three-year offer sheet

    Does any one have a reason for his much worse stats in his 2nd year? Is it melos fault? Can we count on feilds to join his rookie numbers?

    Here's Chad Ford input:

    In other words, by signing Fields to offer sheet, Raptors probably killed talk of a Suns-Knicks sign-and-trade for Nash

    I've never been so proud of BC! In the words of Axl Rose:

    You wanna f*ck with me?
    Don't f*ck with me.


    Nevermind the fact I do like Fields and his girlfriend is smoking hot.

    More from Stein:

    Sources say that the three-year deal offer sheet to Fields, with the Year 3 jump a la Omer Asik, approaches $20 million

    Stein just confirmed to a Knick fan on Twitter that if NYK match the offer, Fields can't be used in a S&T deal! haha Brilliant!

    His rookie number were fantastic. Id like him to either go back to them (awesome 3ptshot) or increase from there and be a really starting 3 in this league. His defense is highly touted too!

    More from Ford:

    I think Fields signing is smart move for Raptors. Toronto essentially paid $20M to knock Knicks out of running for Nash …

    Apparently it's in the $20 mil range for Fields. Yikes. He was good before Melo right? Right?

    Unfortunately year 3 will have Fields on the books at $10M and he will be paid $5M in year 1 and 2.

    I think this is overpaying but such is the nature of the restricted free agency game.

    Also the cap hit for Raptors is averaged over 3 years (i.e. just under $7 million) but if Knicks match they use the annual salaries and they already have $65 million committed for 2014-2015 so almost impossible for them to match and absorb another $10 millon.
