As the New York Knicks look more and more like they will be losing point guard Jeremy Lin, one of their stars has come out swinging at what the point guard will be paid in coming seasons.

Speaking after a Team USA practice (AP Report), Knicks shooting guard Carmelo Anthony spoke to reporters about the possibility of Lin leaving New York:

"It's not up to me," Anthony said with a laugh. "It's up to the organization to say they want to match that ridiculous contract that's out there."
The contract Anthony refers to comes from the Houston Rockets, who offered Lin a three-year, $25 million deal that pays $15 million in its third year. The Knicks were widely expected to match whatever offer Lin received, but the size of the Rockets' proposed contract could wreak havoc with the Knicks' cap situation in the last year of the deal.
