Landry, Lin, and Lopez all receive qualifying offers

Keywords: landry fields, jeremy lin, brook lopez


The Knicks and Nets made the first step in retaining some key players today by giving them qualifying offers. What this means is that if any teams try to sign these players, the Knicks and Nets can match the offer without worrying about going over the salary cap. Now the three players in question all had some pretty tumultuous seasons.



First is the obvious, Jeremy Lin. Linsanity swept over New York and a superstar was born. But as quickly as Lin came he went, injuries plagued his season and we still don’t know what we might get. Speaking of injuries Brook Lopez missed almost all of last season with the Nets. If they hold onto him he will be a key piece to their Brooklyn debut. And finally Landry Fields. Landry had…..a forgettable season in his sophomore campaign. But regardless he too will be retained. So now we will hopefully get a chance to see how these three players fair next season in New York.
