Lakers Acquire Jeremy Lin

SUNDAY, 12:22pm: The trade is now official the Lakers have announced via their website. Los Angeles will receive Lin, plus Houston’s first-round pick in 2015, and the 2015 second-round pick that the Rockets had acquired from the Clippers. The Rockets in turn receive the rights to Sergei Lishchuk.

FRIDAY, 1:59pm: The Rockets and Lakers have reached agreement on a deal that sends Jeremy Lin to the Lakers, reports Jeff Goodman of (Twitter link). Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported earlier that the teams were finalizing such a deal, while Marc Stein of broke the story about the talks. A future first-round pick is also headed to the Lakers, Goodman confirms, while Wojnarowski’s previous reporting indicated other draft considerations will go from Houston to the Lakers, too. The Lakers will send out cash and the rights to a draft-and-stash prospect who’s playing overseas, Wojnarowski also reported, but no salary will go Houston’s way, helping clear room for Chris Bosh, who’s nearing a commitment to the Rockets.

The first-rounder headed to the Lakers is Houston’s 2015 pick, tweets Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. It’ll include protections, and the Rockets will also send a second-rounder the Lakers’ way, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle (Twitter link).

The deal indicates that the Lakers are ready to move forward and focus on next summer’s free agent group, since they’re committing nearly $8.4MM of their cap space to Lin. They missed out on LeBron James, and while Carmelo Anthony reportedly hasn’t told the Lakers they’re out of the running for him, another report indicates that ‘Melo has narrowed his choice to the Knicks and Bulls.

    lol the Lakers still cant guard the PG position…They needed that position more than anything IMO

  2. it still a pick, but it going to be a pick between 20 and 30

      Depends. If the Rox get the Pelicans 1st rounder for Asik and flip it to LA with Lin (pure genius on D-Mo’s part) then it could be in the early teens. Pelicans won’t make any noise next year.

  3. The Lakers have 7 players, and 4 of them play PG (Nash, Marshall, Clarkson and Lin)

    • could be 6 they could use the pick to make someone take nash

      • Might as well bite the bullet and keep Nash. The Lakers need to keep future draft picks to start rebuilding a core, because Kobe is gone soon and the NBA needs the Lakers, Knicks and Celtics to be successful to keep ratings high
