Now that the dust has settled, the Rockets should hope that the Knicks match their offer.
Sure, Jeremy Lin makes headlines, seemingly fills the void left by the departure of Goran Dragic and trade of Kyle Lowry, and would strengthen the Houston fanbase in Asia. He even looked unstoppable for a two-week stint of Linsanity last year.
However, what it boils down to is that the franchise is re-tooling and it doesn't need to throw $30 million at an unproven point guard with a turnover problem.
It's just not worth it. Let the Knicks swallow the poison pill.
