Loophole Could Help The Rockets Land Jeremy Lin

As Jeremy Lin tested restricted free agency, there was very little concern from Knicks camp. New York was reportedly willing to match any offer Lin received. However, that changed Saturday night, and now there are reports indicating Lin could be headed to the Houston Rockets. One of the main causes for the change from the Knicks could be the use of a loophole by the Rockets.

The extra cost is a major factor when it comes to the NBA's luxury tax system.

So much for this, I guess. It's a clever poison pill contract written by the Knicks.
