When restricted free agent Landry Fields signed a rich offer sheet from the Toronto Raptors, it was generally assumed that the New York Knicks would allow him to leave. But according to a report from Michael Grange of SportsNet.ca, the Knicks have not yet made up their minds on whether to match the offer.
Colangelo says #Knicks are "50-50" on matching Fields offer ... #Raptors #NBA— Michael Grange (@michaelgrange) July 11, 2012
Fields agreed to sign a three-year, $20 million offer sheet from the Raptors during the moratorium period. He averaged 8.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game last season.
The Knicks are already well over the cap, but still have the ability to match Fields' offer sheet because they hold his Bird rights.
