08:58 AM ET 07.14 | The Knicks are "unhappy" about a change in the terms of the Rockets' offer sheet for Jeremy Lin, according to an NBA source, after the offer was bumped to $25 million guaranteed over three years, Despite their anger, the Knicks still are expected to match it in the next three days. That doesn't mean they are thrilled with their point-guard prodigy, who has a resume of 26 games with starter's minutes. As of last night, the Knicks had not received the offer sheet in their hands as the Rockets continued to play games. Knicks coach Mike Woodson, who gushed three days ago about Lin keeping his starting job when training camp opened, seemed cooler Friday.

That is "Snot running down his nose greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes. Drying in the cold sun. Watching as the frilly panties run." Google is great.

I think they were caught of guard because Houston changed the offer at the end before Lin signed it.

and? ITs called negotiating....Maybe Lin said I want all three years guaranteed....If the knicks wanted him that bad they would have signed him right out of the gate and never even let the market dictate what they have to pay now....

Orlando/Houston deal can't move forward until the Lin and Gomer Asik deals are resolved. Houston doesn't know exactly what it's working with until then. So by Monday that won't resolve either. Hat's why they signed both guys to offers yesterday. Now CHI and NY have 3 days to respond. Then ORL/HOU can be resolved.

Expound please. Why do CHI and NY have to respond before HOU/ORL can go forward?

Backloaded deal... $14.9M in the final year.

If the Knicks match, they will have over $77M committed to Melo, Chandler, Amare & Lin for the 14/15 season.
