First I saw this ...
The Knicks' offer to Courtney Lee is north of $10 million per year for 4 years. More: https://t.co/6uZb6aoktg— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) July 2, 2016
... and I was like "okay, that's long but fine, and 4-year deals seem to be the thing and I like Courtney Lee a lot." But then I saw this ...
Sources: Sacramento Kings making a strong push to land Courtney Lee in free agency. Hearing an offer could approach $14 million per season.— Michael Scotto (@MikeAScotto) July 2, 2016
... and I thought "well, the Kings seem like a worse situation, since they have Ben McLemore already and they seem like they'll be worse." But then this crossed my timeline:
Arron Afflalo has agreed to a two-year, $25M deal with the Kings, league source tells @TheVertical.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) July 2, 2016
And I smiled for so many reasons.
So yeah, one would think the Kings are out of the running for Lee, and perhaps that means the Knicks can get themselves a verbal agreement. Not sure which other teams are joining in that push. Lee is definitely my favorite of the wings who've garnered (reported) interest from New York, so I hope this gets done. Even for 4 years.
