Rockets, Sixers In Talks On Jeremy Lin Deal

FRIDAY, 12:19pm: The Rockets and Sixers are currently in talks about a Lin deal, but no agreement has been reached, a source tells Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News (Twitter link).

WEDNESDAY, 11:55pm: The Rockets have a deal in place to send Jeremy Lin to the Sixers if Houston is able to sign Chris Bosh, league sources tell Mitch Lawrence of New York Daily News. The trade would give the Rockets needed cap flexibility in their attempt to make room for Bosh.

The Sixers were reportedly open to such a trade, but wanted to receive a first rounder from Houston as part of the agreement. Lawrence doesn’t report the specifics of compensation, but it seems likely Philadelphia’s demand has been met. That’s speculation on my part, since the Sixers would appear to have more leverage considering the Rockets are being squeezed into a three-day window to have any chance of securing Bosh alongside Chandler Parsons,  who agreed to sign a max offer sheet with Dallas that Houston will have 72 hours to match or decline.

The move would work in conjunction with Houston’s pending agreement to send Omer Asik to the Pelicans, which still depends upon New Orleans’ ability to clear salary before taking back the big man’s contract. Lin and Asik have identical contracts that include a balloon payment exceeding the cap hit in the final year, which is the approaching 2014/15 season.

    Lin and the first from NO to sixers

      has to be more than that. Thats alot of money to take on for a late 1st rounder. I expect a third asset maybe another 1st or a player.

      • BrickTops

        True, but that’s also a lot of cap space next summer. Lin still brings in a lot of international money. We will see.

          50/50 he gets released shortly after. I believe I’ve seen reported there’s more to the deal than just 1 1st rounder. Hinkie would be very slick if he got T-Robinson as well.

            I think you mean Terrance Jones? Robinson was traded to Portland last year

          • Zak Arn

            Oh wow yea that’s who I meant, kid from Kentucky.

        • J Taylor

          International Money? In Philadelphia?
          That’s very far from the Left Coast and China.
          And in Philly, he will get ZERO media exposure, games broadcast, or any help in his international conquest.

    Is this why Philly wasn’t involved in the Marcus Thornton deal? That would have seemed to be up their alley, with $30 million in cap space available.

    • Zak Arn

      They have the capability of facilitating 3 trades; there are about half a dozen players on 1 yr deals between 8-10 MM that need to be dealt to free up space for other teams.

  3. Lin + Motiejunas + a 1st + 2 2nds
