Fields expressed how he felt about leaving the Knicks and joining the Raptors on his Twitter account. “I want to thank ALL the Knick fans out there for their support over the past two years!” Fields wrote. “Much love and respect, you will be missed! Thanking God not only for another day, but another opportunity! Toronto bound.” New York Times

Grunwald said little has changed on the Landry Fields, Jeremy Lin offer sheet fronts, although he said Knicks want both back but the press conference was not the time or place to discuss it. “We’ve been told he (Lin) has received an offer sheet from the Houston Rockets. We’re waiting to see that offer sheet. I think Houston had some things to get through first in terms of timing. But like Landry Fields, Jeremy Lin, those are two young players that we’d like back here. We’ll make a final determination when we need to make that determination. Now is not the time.” New York Post

Mike Woodson was asked today whether the Knicks would match the offer sheet the Raptors gave Landry Fields and it didn't sound like they would at this point. "That’s a Glen Grunwald question in terms of where we’re going to go with that," Woodson said. "But as it stands right now it’s all about the guys that we’ve already made the commitment to in terms of getting them where they need to be." The Knicks have until Saturday to match it. #Knicks Sulia

Restricted free agent Landry Fields signed a three-year offer sheet with the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, his agent said. The New York Knicks will have three days to match Toronto's offer. ESPN.com

The Lin offer sheet should be a priority because no other move they will make has the ability to spur season-ticket sales than signing “17.’’ The Knicks also will officially sign Jason Kidd, Steve Novak, J.R. Smith, James White and formally execute the sign-and-trade for Marcus Camby. It’s a busy day for general manager Glen Grunwald, who probably won’t match Landry Fields’ three-year, $18.5 million offer sheet from the Raptors, with Smith now aboard. New York Post

As the Steve Nash sweepstakes continued on Wednesday, sources confirmed that the Knicks have emerged as a serious threat to land the free-agent point guard. New York seemed unlikely to remain in the running after Toronto's power play Wednesday, when the Raptors -- which sources say have offered Nash a three-year, $36 million deal -- agreed with Knicks' restricted free agent Landry Fields on a three-year, $20 million offer sheet, railroading one of New York's plans to land Nash in the process. Sources say Fields was the player that the Knicks originally hoped to send to Phoenix in a sign-and-trade for Nash. The Knicks wanted to use that deal (or something similar to it) to pay Nash more than the midlevel exception they would otherwise be limited to (four years, combined $20 million max). SI.com
