Default Houston's moves...

So, Houston have offered Lin a contract, but the Knicks are almost certain to match it. Does he then get to choose between the two, or does he automatically go to the Knicks if he accepts the value?

Houston have moved Lowry and aren't going to re-sign Dragic.

Kidd is going to NY, Nash has gone to LA.

Who is going to play PG for Houston??

I can only assume they will try to swing a trade, hope to get Sessions or Calderon, but really, who are they going to get to play the point?

Raymond Felton
Jeremy Lin
Ramon Sessions
Jose Calderon

I mean there are guys still out there, I am sure I am missing some and yes I expect Lin to go back to NY but still

They met with Brooks today, so I assume he is the backup plan.

he automatically goes to the knicks. he's a restricted free agent, which means if he signs an offer, all the knicks have to do is agree to that offer and he automatically comes back to the knicks. He'll be a knick next year for sure...apparently aaron brooks is back in the mix for houston

lin either gets matched by the knicks or goes to houston. only options...and knicks will match.

this is the deepest PG FA class... ever. They will find someone.. Ray Felton probably makes the most sense at this point.

More importantly though... where does Marcus Camby now go? The rockets are a mess and he isn't getting any younger.. he said he wanted to go back to houston.. but I doubt it now... he could be a key role player to a title team.

Um thanks? What are you talking about?

The topic is about Houston and PG's so I listed the PG they just signed to an offer sheet and said "I expect NY to match"

Which Raymond Felton though... the successful one or the recent one...

Sessions is a decent PG if he doesn't need to do too much (ie with Lakers). But Houston don't have a whole lot going at the moment.

Camby would be a good fit to spell Chander in NY... just sayin'...

So far Houston have drafted several similar players, tried to sign Asik to a stupid contract, and have no PG unless the Knicks don't match.
Very interesting offseason...

I think he could still play, he is in good shape, and he still has the moves.
Here he is training with Josh Smith . Dream - YouTube
