Report: Sixers And Rockets Talking Trade Involving Jeremy Lin
The Philadelphia 76ers and Houston Rockets are talking about a trade involving Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.
Adrian Wojnarowski also reports that the Rockets and Cavs are have deals lined up to send out Jeremy Lin and Jarrett Jack, respectively.
"The Philadelphia 76ers have expressed a willingness to trade for Houston Rockets guardJeremy Lin depending on what sort of assets Houston is willing to attach to the deal"
Also from the Stein article:
"It's believed that the Rockets would have to send Philadelphia at least one future first-round pick to convince the Sixers to go through with the deal."
Stein went on to say that the Rockets would only trade Lin if they are sure that they are getting one of the top free agents on the market. So, while the Sixers and Rockets could come to terms on a deal, it's possible that a deal may never materialize if the Rockets are not able to attract a free agent. Or, the Rockets could have a verbal agreement from Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh already in place. The situation will be an interesting one to follow over the next few days.
