Jerry West on Lin contract, Nash with Lakers and Dwight Howard
West weighed in on Jeremy Lin’s new contract with the Rockets and why the Knicks didn’t match it.
In the last year he [would cost] $30 million,” West said. “I don’t feel like anyone thinks he’s worth $30 million.”
West likes the Steve Nash signing for the Lakers, because he can shoot so well. But he is a bit concerned about Nash’s defense.
West weighed in on the Lakers with or without Dwight Howard. “I think the roles of [Pau] Gasol and [Andrew] Bynum needed to be defined a bit more,” West said. He thinks Howard is a better defender than Bynum or Gasol.
