Rockets Shopping Omer Asik, Jeremy Lin

The Rockets have called several teams about Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin and made it known that they are available in trades, league sources told Ken Berger of  The Rockets are extremely confident in their pursuit of Dwight Howard and therefore they feel that Asik is expendable.

Rival executives feel that Philadelphia is a potential destination for both players as  former Rockets executive Sam Hinkie is the Sixers’ new GM.  Hinkie was part of the Houston front office that signed both Asik and Lin with backloaded offer sheets last summer. 

Lin is available as well, though they’d have to get a starting point guard in return.  Teams believe the Rockets will move both Asik and Lin if they seal the deal with Howard this week.  In a move that may or may not be noteworthy, Lin was not invited to Houston’s pitch meeting with Howard, sources told Berger.

    They both aren’t coming to philadelphia. They have 2yr each on the deal and philly won’t give up the cap space and it would hurt their chances of tanking for Archie Goodwin. I fully suspect the sixers tanking this yr take 2 players in the top10 next year and give out a max contract to a player to pair them with some very high end prospects.
