According to Marc Berman of the NY Post the Rockets and Mavs are also in the mix for the Knicks shooting guard who has reportedly been offered 4 years 24 million from the Knicks.
“I’m a diehard Knick fan, but I want to see my son get justice,’’ Earl Smith said last night. “We know the Knicks only have so much money because of early-Bird rights. But if some team offers a crazy amount of money, like $10 million per, he’ll probably go there. We’ll see what happens. He’s not signing yet.’’
Two of his suitors, the Rockets and Mavericks, are waiting to see if they will land Dwight Howard before making an offer for Smith tomorrow. The Rockets were considering a four-year package for Smith. There is no state income tax in Texas.
Tommy DeeI think 6 million per for the 6th man of the year is below value. I think it is smart that Smith is waiting to hear what Dwight Howard does, obviously, before making a decision but I don’t see him getting 10 million per. Like we said on the podcast, his value, in my opinion, is between the offer Kyle Korver got from Milwaukee and what Tyreke Evans got.
