Found July 17, 2012 on Sports Blog Net:
Just a short time ago, the New York Knicks have reportedly declined their chance to match the Houston Rockets offer of 3 years, 25 million dollar deal for the Harvard grad. The Knicks decided to let Lin go and take their money somewhere else which shows that they believe the roster they have is good enough without him. As Lin rose to fame last season, his stock went up as teams from across the league were stunned to see a one time D-League player rise to the top news of ESPN. Houston obviously needs some upgrades as they try to court Dwight Howard among other stars. Linsanity should make some impact on the little known team if he can produce. New York might as well pursue better offers as they need to get good players to make it past the first round. With the distraction behind them, the Knicks in my opinion should be contenders and the Rockets will have a little more chance of beating the western conference. Overall, the whole ordeal will blow over soon and the spotlight will be back to Howard which might involve the Lakers. Thank you very much for checking out this story please read some more.
