    $8.5 M a year seems rather low. If HOU was willing to offer (as rumored) at $7.5M a year for either Lin or Dragic. What's another $1M?

    this makes me so mad. all these teams signing free agents left and right. And the rockets are stuck in the mud with 3 rookies they didn't even want in the first place.

    DO SOMETHING... jesus

    That's basically what we did offer. Morey's deal started at 8 mil per in the first year if the reports were correct.

    I think this has more to do with the other factors than salary. The 10 per thing was just a negotiating position. Either way, we are screwed. Knicks will match anything we throw at Lin. We will be left with a disgruntled Lowry.

    I think Dragic's agent convinced him not to go to Houston, and be an assest
