Howard Beck of the New York Times just tweeted:
Lin will be a Rocket. Knicks deliberations over.
Welp, it’s official. Linsanity will have a new home come fall, thanks to Knicks management going out of their way to ignore the reams upon reams of arguments in favor of matching the Rockets’ three year, $25 million offer sheet.
Details about the deliberations — to say nothing of quotes from management itself — have yet to be disclosed.
Seconds after Howard Beck broke the news, Nate Taylor of the New York Times tweeted that Mike Woodson had been seen sitting with James Dolan in the stands at the opening tip of the Knicks’ summer league game in Las Vegas. For what that’s worth.
Here’s a link to Beck’s piece, which was just posted.
More to come soon. As our good friend Seth Rosenthal is wont to say, please be kind to one another.
