Not quite.

The deal is actually two fold.

Keep in mind it is based off Gilbert Arenas where his old team (Golden State) lost the player due to not have anything but EBR to match the offer he was given from Washington.

GS could only offer 5 due to Gilbert being an early bird, yet Washington was able to offer over 8 mil due to their cap space, and to them he is just a free agent.

So now the rule is......

The first two years of an Early bird RFA contract must be......

At the max.....the average of current NBA player contract, in this case 5 mil in the 1st year, with an increase in the second reflecting a 4.5 % increase.

After those two years, a player is full bird and can receive max pay...therefore the backload being much higher, but only from a team making the offer.

Now the trick to the backload is for Houston to have done it, they must have the cap space to accommodate the average of the entire contract, and that becomes their cap hold each year, not the actual yearly pay.

So their cap hold will be 8-8-8

So the cap hold is just different? Not the amount Lin is paid?

Yep.

8-8-8 for Houston

It would have been face value for NY 5-5-15

Same as the Asik offer they just gave.

Ive been arguing this with my boy for a week. Thanks for the clarity. Time to go boast lol

Btw, I think the deal is cool for Houston. Theyre basically rebuilding anyway. Lin could wind up a really good piece to build around. The Asik deal though is a head scratcher. I just havent seen that potential out of him. I mean 3 pts n 5 reb and he cant hit free throws. He also isnt a prolific shot blocker. Im perplexed to say the least lol.

no problem.

Asik is one of those big dudes that just get in the way of things in the paint, and give out a few hard fouls.

Not worth that kind of money, but I guess since Houston has to maintain that salary cap floor, someone is gonna get paid.

I can't see the bulls matching that deal.

Erden does have a jumper, Asik shouldn't be on the floor on offense.

Felton is playing better than Lin and is also making a lot less. Not to mention that he's a much better fit for this team.

It seems like not re-signing Lin worked great for the Knicks.

I surely hope you're right because thus far, it hasn't looked like it at all.
